Real Estate Lawyers
Putting together a successful commercial real estate deal can be very complicated and usually requires the involvement of an experienced attorney. Our firm’s team of highly skilled, commercial real estate attorneys possess the background and deal-making experience to handle any real estate transaction effectively and efficiently. In fact, our clients often bring us in early in the planning and negotiation stage of a real estate deal to help strategize and develop their objectives. We then help our clients to synchronize those objectives in negotiating and drafting asset purchase and real estate agreements.
We work with many leading Illinois lending institutions, developers, institutional investors, landlords, commercial tenants, and local and national corporations in handling their real estate matters. Our team has worked to close sophisticated and significant deals throughout Illinois, but especially in and around the northern Illinois and greater Chicago area.
While we will handle residential sales, our focus and experience is in serving commercial real estate clients in the sale or purchase of shopping centers, office buildings, multifamily, franchise locations, and mixed-use buildings. Our leasing experience includes all forms of rentals from co-locating electronic data to the most sophisticated commercial leasing.
We offer clients flexible and creative solutions to difficult problems. Our real estate transactional lawyers and litigation attorneys work together as a team to offer focused, multi-disciplinary counsel for our commercial real estate clients.
While clients regularly call on us to represent them in complex local and cross-border transactions, they also turn to us for more routine matters and benefit from our experience and industry relationships.
We regularly advise key industry clients on a variety of matters, including:
- Sale or purchase of office, retail, industrial or multifamily properties
- Sale or purchase of land
- Sale of bank owned real estate
- All aspects of financing of real estate transactions
- Builder-developers of retail, mixed-use, or residential properties
- Complex debt restructurings, workouts and equity recapitalizations, including loan-to-own transactions;
- Real estate private equity fund formations
- Lenders or borrowers of construction, mezzanine or term loans
- Institutional investors in the northern Illinois or greater Chicago metropolitan area
When it comes to the sale, purchase or leasing in the Greater Chicago area and beyond, the real estate team at The Collins Law Firm has the experience and skill to close the deal to our clients’ best advantage.
