Real Estate Law

Focusing on commercial real estate – including land development, property acquisitions and divestitures, commercial leasing, and all the financial components comprised in such transactions – the Real Estate practitioners at Sprouse Shrader Smith offer a unique ability to guide you through the complexities involved in any real estate transaction. Our skilled attorneys have experience in all facets of commercial real estate, including purchase and sale transactions, land use planning, licensing, permitting, construction contracts, leasing, 1031 like-kind exchanges, condemnation proceedings, right-of-way acquisitions and more. Our attorneys offer full-service solutions, not only handling the complex real estate projects our clients bring to us, but concurrently overseeing corporate planning and asset protection issues, setting up appropriate entities for ownership and operation of the properties, and offering our clients the most advantageous tax structure for their projects.

With an understanding of the current real estate climate, as well as an eye toward the future, we work closely with our Banking & Financial Services practice group, leveraging our connections with lenders to find financing sources for our clients. Likewise, we assist with refinancing and liquidation of properties, and also offer real estate litigation where needed. Our real estate attorneys work with numerous farm and ranch owners and operators, and are involved in cutting edge real estate issues in the wind and water industries, in cooperation with our own Agriculture & Agribusiness, Power & Utilities, and Water practices. We have represented major regional wind developers in putting up wind energy transmission lines, and have helped private property owners and municipalities in their purchase and sale of water rights.

We have worked with major subdivision developers to negotiate zoning, concept plan, subdivision plan, and site plan approvals with municipal and other regulatory agencies, including utility agreements, development agreements, and other service agreements with water utility service providers.
