Commercial Real Estate Law

Commercial Real Estate La…

Novara Dorn assists clients in a broad spectrum of real estate transactions, and at every phase from the inception of a deal through its closing. Our real estate practice centers around commercial real estate, an area in which we are particularly suited to practice due to our in-depth experience in commercial lending, land use, zoning, site development, incentives and construction law.

We have experience with commercial real estate markets across the country. We regularly handle multi-million dollar transactions for our clients, who include developers, investors, midsize to large businesses, and nonprofit organizations.

Experienced Real Estate Guidance for Developers, REITS, and Business Investors

Perhaps more than most other areas of practice, real estate work requires not only knowledge of the law but meticulous attention to detail. In addition to placing a premium on these traits, Novara Dorn also considers it a priority to cultivate a strong working relationship with our clients so that we remain mindful at all times of our clients' needs, concerns, and goals.

Among the many types of commercial real estate transactions and issues we handle for our clients are:

  • Acquisition and disposition of commercial and industrial property
  • Commercial finance, including tax credit financing
  • Office, retail and industrial leases (landlord and tenant side)
  • Public / private partnerships
  • Development Agreements
  • Economic development incentives
  • Planned use developments
  • Contested and complex title / ownership issues
  • Land contract
  • Deed in lieu / distressed property restructuring and workouts
  • Zoning and ordinance work
  • Construction contracts
  • Large-scale residential developments
  • Real estate and construction litigation

Creative Approaches to Commercial Real Estate Issues

We view every case and transaction that we take on in the larger context of the business or investment interests of our clients. Because we are involved at every stage of a transaction, including structuring, financing, acquisition of property, and closing, we keep a close watch on the progress of every deal. We take every measure possible to prevent surprises or problems that can cost our clients money if not promptly and thoroughly addressed.

Novara Dorn has extensive experience with complex real estate transactions of significant value, in Michigan and nationally. This background allows us to develop creative and innovative solutions to urgent issues when they arise. We have also acquired a reputation in Michigan as the law firm to call when unforeseen, and seemingly insurmountable, challenges threaten to derail a real estate transaction. We take pride in our history of rescuing transactions that other firms viewed as impossible to save.

From our Southfield office, Novara Dorn serves clients in Metropolitan Detroit, throughout Michigan and nationally. We invite you to contact us at (248) 945-0523 or by e-mail to discuss our services and how we can help you.
