We help developers build a community feeling within mixed-use and commercial projects.

Tenants, residents and customers want to live, work, play and stay in developments that thrive. Our documents incorporate advanced techniques and strategies to help structure developments that are attractive in the marketplace. Each project has its own unique set of challenges. In our years of practice, we have encountered and overcome a wide variety of obstacles that threatened the success of a project. We have significant experience with the drafting of covenants, easements and restrictions documents and adjacent owner agreements. The importance of these ancillary but essential documents is often overlooked. Additionally, we have negotiated complex limited liability company operating agreements and other entity organizational documents, when required for specific transactions. Above all else, perhaps our greatest strength is our ability to coordinate or “quarterback” a multi-faceted transaction. Keeping the various components of a project tracking towards completion is a skill only borne out by experience.
