In an era of siloed, hyperspecialized legal practices, the breadth and integration of Sussman Shank’s Real Estate and Land Use Group gives our clients a unique advantage. Because of our size and team orientation, our real estate lawyers are experienced in working in a wide range of real estate matters – including in the areas of development, land use, purchase, sale and exchanges, financing, leasing, boundary and title issues, and litigation. Whatever the situation requires, our team has been there, done that, and can help clients do it, too.
When it comes to real estate, there is no substitute for experience. And when it comes to experience, there’s no substitute for Sussman Shank. Our broad range of capabilities means we are known for being real-world, get-it-done lawyers. We aren’t about writing memos, endless meetings and complicating deals. We’re about rolling up our sleeves, and helping our clients get what needs to be done, done.
Because of our breadth, we’re also immensely efficient. In real estate (or any) law, a key objective is issue-spotting – analyzing a situation and identifying potential pitfalls, and opportunities. Our lawyers can do this quickly because there’s little they haven’t seen before. Call it pattern recognition, experience or breadth of knowledge. Whatever a client is working on, there’s a lawyer here with the background – and answers – they need. We help clients get deals over the finish line.
We’re also a true team. Big firms can become bureaucratic, can shuffle lawyers around, and sometimes overstaff projects. Small firms lack the legal firepower and bench depths clients need. At Sussman Shank, our Real Estate and Land Use practice works seamless with one another, and with other lawyers on other teams. We communicate quickly, strategize, and are an exceptionally agile, effective – and cost-effective – team.
