There are numerous steps needed to complete a real estate development project. Real estate developers can be required to provide extensive amounts of information, meet specific benchmarks and navigate countless other challenges on the way to seeing their project come to fruition.
We have represented clients and their real estate development projects across the country. Our nationally recognized real estate attorneys represent developers at every stage of the real estate development process.
We know how important time, budget and momentum are to the success of a project. Our Project Development lawyers drive projects and developments to completion as quickly as possible, helping to maximize the success of our clients.
We move projects along more quickly and more economically than other law firms, because we’ve been practicing for more than 185 years. It’s this experience, paired with the strong community ties that we’ve forged in both the public and private sectors, that gives us a competitive edge in ensuring your deadlines are reached successfully.
We work with in-house real estate development teams as well as outside contractors and consultants. Moreover, our attorneys know which development agencies are best suited for your project, what tax incentives are available, and where to turn for financial assistance for real estate transactions. We understand the myriad laws, regulations and ordinances that will confront your project, so we can anticipate trouble spots before they become problems.
At Phillips Lytle, we start by asking questions so we can customize a project development team comprised of attorneys with expertise in the areas of law your project demands. Whether you’re in need of guidance on entity formation, land use, project finance assistance, construction contracts, site leasing agreements or real estate litigation, we craft a team to suit your needs. They’ll look at your venture from start to finish, map out the most efficient route to completion and identify potential obstacles and ways to overcome them.
For example, if your venture calls for the acquisition of property, the rezoning of property, the hiring of numerous employees or aggressive tax abatements, we’ll assemble a team of attorneys with expertise in real estate development, land use, labor and tax. Team members then collaborate to ensure that any legislative, regulatory or political hurdles are cleared. This team-oriented approach keeps your project on course from a legal standpoint and helps ensure that your goals are reached in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Our Project Development team engages with clients to find the most advantageous incentive packages, programs and options for their real estate development projects. These include IDA tax incentive products, state and federal grant programs, local and federal revolving loan funds, adaptive reuse incentives, Empire Zones, foreign trade zones, export working capital programs, export insurance and the Brownfield Cleanup Program.
Our law firm has a long history of finding creative solutions and addressing the unique needs of our clients involved in real estate development. Phillips Lytle’s Real Estate attorneys possess a deep understanding of the laws and expectations set for developers as they seek their specific business goals.
