Taxation

Client Focus

When you hire one of our real estate lawyers, you receive efficient, cost-effective service. We use our legal skills to close your transactions on time and to resolve your disputes as quickly as possible. And we use our knowledge of the local community to solve your practical problems, such as obtaining introductions to lenders, arranging for expedited service from title companies, or working out permit disputes with government officials.

Services

Our real estate practice includes land development. Over the years, we’ve helped clients buy, develop, and sell hundreds of millions of dollars of San Diego real estate, including resorts and major subdivisions. We’re knowledgeable about all phases of the development process, and enjoy excellent relationships with the various government offices overseeing the permit process.

We also do a substantial amount of legal work for clients who own real estate or want to purchase or sell it, including planning tax-free exchanges; forming and marketing syndications; opposing reassessments by taxing authorities; obtaining and analyzing environmental audits; and preparing and enforcing CC&Rs for homeowner associations.

Although much of our practice involves transactions, we also handle real estate disputes involving matters such as partition, foreclosure, quiet title, and construction defects.
