Experienced Attorneys: Playing a Key Role
We offer our clients substantial experience handling sophisticated multi-property, multi-state acquisitions and financings, and we have experience in the area of land condominium development projects. Our attorneys have played significant roles in a number of large real estate transactions in the mid-Atlantic region in recent years, including in mid and eastern Pennsylvania, southern and central New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland. We represent several large owners of office properties in the center-city and suburban Philadelphia, southern New Jersey, and Delaware markets.
From obtaining permits for a new development to helping a building owner lease or dispose of a property to guiding a tenant through a lease agreement, the attorneys in Saul Ewing's Real Estate Office Practice advise clients about safeguards they should consider and work to help clients complete transactions in a timely manner.
Keeping Up-to-Date: Involved and Informed
Our attorneys stay informed about the issues that concern our real estate clients in the office sector of the industry, and about trends in operating expenses, vacancy rates, market rents, and leasing incentives, to better advise and negotiate for our clients. To that end, our attorneys are members of local, state, and national bar associations, as well as trade organizations such as the NAIOP. In addition, Saul Ewing's Real Estate Office Practice attorneys have close ties and relationships with members of the brokerage community.
