Commercial Real Estate Attorneys need to have a deep understanding of local commercial real estate regulations and laws, and these laws can vary quite a bit from one State to another and even one county to another. This is why it is essential that anyone who is looking for a commercial real estate lawyer only hire one with experience in their area, and one who has a record of successful commercial real estate dealings.
Commercial transactions involving real estate also involves a lot of money or a lot of assets in many cases, and so even if there is not litigation many times a lawyer is still needed to oversee things like contracts, appraisals, property management, development agreements, investments, net leases, or any transaction involving brokers or real estate professionals.
It is almost always suggested that individuals or businesses enlist the service of an experienced commercial real estate lawyer in any of these instances due to the complexity of most of these contracts and the possibility of individuals involved in these transactions being mislead, either accidentally or purposefully. Do not underestimate the importance of a lawyer in any commercial transaction. Especially if third party brokers or real estate agents are involved.
