Why Choose Our Commercial Real Estate Lawyer?

If you are not sure whether you need commercial real estate attorneys to safely handle transactions for commercial properties, take a look at what our Pittsburgh law firm does for our business clients and real estate professionals:

Contract negotiation and drafting

We can help you negotiate, draft, review, and enforce contracts for your property purchase and sale agreements, lease agreements, easements, licenses, covenants, and deeds. When we are done, your contracts will reflect your intentions and comply with the applicable laws in Pennsylvania.

Due diligence

We can conduct title searches, surveys, inspections, appraisals, environmental assessments, zoning compliance, and lien searches before you sign on the dotted line. This will help us identify and resolve any potential issues that may affect your transactions later on.


We can help you obtain the best financing option for your purchase or lease of shopping centers or other real estate investments. You can get a broad range of options, such as mortgages, loans, lines of credit, equity investments, and tax credits at the most favorable terms.


Once the real estate transaction is finalized, we can help close it by preparing closing documents, coordinating escrow services, recording deeds and mortgages, and resolving any post-closing real estate issues.

Dispute resolution

We can also seek dispute resolution on your behalf for any breach of contract claims, boundary disputes, title defects, lien claims, eminent domain actions, landlord-tenant disputes, and foreclosure actions in commercial and residential or investor’s properties.

Zoning and land use

Zoning matters have a lot of moving parts, like obtaining permits, variances, special exceptions, conditional uses, rezoning requests, subdivision approvals, and development agreements. We will make sure you comply with the applicable regulations and obtain the necessary approvals for your projects.

Tax advice

We recently helped a client lower their tax-assessed value by $77,500, which resulted in significant savings. We can help you minimize your tax liability and maximize the benefits by advising you on all matters related to property taxes, transfer taxes, income taxes, sales taxes, and tax appeals for your businesses.


If you need help with planning, designing, constructing, leasing, managing, or selling your properties, we can help oversee the entire process and ensure that your projects are as profitable as possible.

What is Commercial Real Estate Litigation?

It refers to legal disputes and conflicts that arise during transactions related to commercial properties. These disputes may involve buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, commercial developers, contractors, brokers, lenders, or even government entities.

Here are the most common issues that often lead to litigation in these situations. Our proven and capable commercial real estate attorney team can provide you strong representation and protect your rights in the following types of real estate disputes and more: 

  • Breach of contract: One party does not do what they agreed to do in a contract for a real estate investment deal, so the other party may sue for damages.
  • Fraud: One party lies or hides something important about a deal, so the other party may sue for cancellation or damages.
  • Title disputes: There is a question or conflict over who owns or has rights to a commercial property. The parties may sue for clarification or ownership.
  • Zoning and land use violations: A party breaks the local rules that control how commercial property can be used or modified. The local authorities or neighbors may sue for compliance or penalties.
  • Eminent domain: A government agency wants to “take” a property for public purposes, but the property owner may sue to stop or get paid in return.
  • Lease disputes: A landlord and a tenant disagree over the terms or performance of a commercial lease agreement. The parties may sue for damages or eviction.
  • Construction defects: There is a problem with the design, construction, or materials of a commercial property that affects its quality, safety, or function. The parties involved in the construction project may sue for damages or repairs.
  • Environmental claims: There is an environmental hazard affecting the property, such as contamination, pollution, asbestos, mold, or radon. The parties responsible for causing or fixing the issue may sue for damages or cleanup.
