Real Estate and Commercial Development

Despite an uneven economic recovery, real estate and real estate development continue to be foundational elements of our economy. Pierce Atwood's Real Estate and Environmental and Land Use Groups work closely with a wide array of local, regional, and national clients, including developers of office buildings, shopping centers, resort properties and industrial properties, developers and owners of residential subdivisions and condominiums, and high end residential property sellers and buyers. We have a strong history of advising developers in areas such as land use permitting, contaminated property issues, and real estate transactional issues.

Our practice areas cover the entire range of real estate practice, concentrating on leasing, complex mixed use developments and multistate acquisitions. We also serve as counsel to banks throughout New England in connection with commercial real estate projects, and assist clients with timberland development, landlord-tenant issues, and real estate syndications.

Pierce Atwood's attorneys consistently participate and serve in state and national real estate associations, contributing to the review and analysis of proposed legislation and rules and identifying "unintended consequences" that should be avoided.

Please contact Judith Woodbury or Dennis Keeler for more information about our practices serving clients in the real estate and commercial development industry.
