Handling all Legal Issues Throughout Your Real Estate Transaction

Commercial Real Estate is a core component of our business practice group. Hertz Schram is devoted to making every commercial real estate transaction a success. Our real estate practice group can handle all issues related to virtually any commercial real estate transaction, from purchase agreements to syndications to closings to municipal relations to financial workouts and everything in between. We represent respected companies and individuals involved with new development as well as those seeking new acquisitions, sales and strategic partnerships. We represent a wide variety of clients with respect to commercial, industrial, retail and multi-family projects of all types and sizes. Whether the project involves a mobile home park, a commercial shopping center, a multi-family apartment community or an industrial park, working with these types of projects is something we do every day.

We pride ourselves in understanding the economics of the real estate business from both a cost and income point of view. We seek to add value at every stage of the transaction. Our attorneys will work closely with you to develop a creative and effective strategy to protect your short-term goals and maximize the likelihood of long-term success.

Disputes and controversies occur in business. Litigation is an unfortunate by-product of disagreements. We also frequently get involved in litigation matters pertaining to real estate. These matters may include construction issues, quiet title matters, boundary disputes or commercial landlord tenant controversies and a host of other matters. Litigation experience is inadequate without an understanding of the underlying real estate issues. We are as comfortable in the courtroom as we are negotiating deals across the table and it shows in our continued success.

Finally, we also have a very sophisticated and successful real property tax appeal practice and have succeeded in reducing real property taxes for a multitude of projects of myriad type. All real property tax appeals are handled on a contingency basis which costs the client nothing. Let us save you money.
