Gray Reed’s Real Estate Litigation team helps our clients successfully resolve a wide range of disputes efficiently and effectively, whether they stem from landlord-tenant disputes (including lockouts and evictions); land use issues; workout litigation; partnership disputes; title disputes; ROFR’s (rights of first refusal); real estate brokerage matters; homeowner association, condominium association and cooperative corporation disputes; sale and acquisition disputes; condemnation proceedings; ad valorem property tax disputes; or other related commercial and business disputes. Gray Reed has experience dealing with a wide range of properties, including retail properties (shopping centers, malls and lifestyle centers), industrial properties and residential developments (master planned communities, condominiums and apartments).
As a full-service firm, our litigators routinely involve our transactional real estate, environmental and construction law attorneys as part of the team. When necessary, strategically-assembled teams work closely to assess the unique needs of each dispute and develop plans of action to either quickly resolve the dispute and avoid litigation altogether or to aggressively position it for a successful outcome in court.
Our real estate litigation clients vary from developers and builders to owners, landlords, commercial tenants, real estate management companies, institutional investors, lenders, real estate investment trusts (REIT), sponsors of cooperative and condominium plans, contractors and neighborhood groups. Such clients range from high net worth individuals to publicly-traded companies.
Our real estate litigation experience covers a broad spectrum of areas, including:
