Real estate transactions and REIT issues call for more than just an in-depth knowledge of real estate law. These are matters that cross disciplines and often require local resources in multiple jurisdictions. It’s critical to get the deal done properly. You need counsel to pick up the phone to answer your everyday questions, understand the business issues at stake, and adeptly address the range of issues that come with any major transaction.
