Real Estate Law

Commercial Development

CMDA attorneys represent developers in connection with land acquisition, subdivision and/or § 1031 exchanges, environmental compliance, and work closely with local governments regarding land use planning, zoning and platting. We also advise clients of alternative strategies for expanding, renovating, or disposing of commercial real estate holdings and establishing and modifying land use agreements including variances, easements and zoning to protect desired access, signage and building design criteria.

We guide clients through the due diligence phase of development and help negotiate and draft contracts with architects, engineers, and contracts. CMDA attorneys can help secure all necessary zoning permits and approvals with the appropriate federal, state and/or local authorities.

It is our goal to add value to each of our clients’ real estate transactions.  Therefore, upon completion of the development, CMDA attorneys will not only ensure the proper release of all construction and performance bonds, but also establish maintenance bonds and negotiate and draft property management contracts, office, and retail and ground leases to facilitate the successful conclusion and stabilization of the project.
