Real Estate Group

The HMB Real Estate Group provides the firm's clients with depth and experience in a broad range of real estate matters, both at a national and local level, including all aspects of acquisition and development, leasing, financing, construction and ownership.  We bring value to our clients beyond our extensive legal experience because our attorneys also have a long history in the business of real estate.  Our team includes owners of and investors in commercial developments and multi-family projects. We leverage our considerable experience as owners and investors, including our familiarity with the market, with deal structure, and with the players, to assist our clients in achieving business and legal goals that otherwise might not be possible.  We pride ourselves on not just being risk analysts, but drawing on our business experience, and we are not afraid to give our clients our opinion on the business deal itself.  Our real estate attorneys consistently handle sophisticated real estate loan transactions, including complex acquisition and development matters that require consolidating numerous properties and that include significant governmental approval issues. In recent years we have assisted in the creation of and acquisition by private equity funds who purchase distressed properties, whether they are condominium developments, office buildings or retail developments.

Our attorneys understand that our real estate clients are also businesses; their business just happens to be real estate.  The team is well versed in general corporate matters, including, without limitation, partnership formation, financing, and employment issues.

The HMB Real Estate Group represents local and national developers, development companies, retailers, banking institutions and real estate investors in all types of development projects.  The firm has represented developers, lenders and users in the development of corporate headquarters facilities, office buildings and branch officers; hotels; industrial facilities; retail projects, including shopping centers, strip centers and power centers; single and multi-family residential and mixed-use projects; and residential, commercial and mixed-use condominiums.

Our long-term relationships with a diverse group of architects, engineers, contractors, construction, program and project managers, real estate brokers, and other service providers not only assist us in facilitating negotiations of behalf of our clients, but afford us an opportunity to offer our clients a wide base of additional resources and referrals.  In addition, our depth of experience in real estate finance, construction, tax, selection of entity and real estate-related litigation provides our clients with comprehensive legal coverage of all matters related to real estate development.
