Real Estate & Property
Zoning And Land Use
The right property for development is hard to find. We work with developers to fix zoning problems on their projects. The changing trends in development that resulted in large national companies working with preferred developers mean that they have offloaded much of the development risk to regional land expansion companies. We have experience securing contingent sale contracts based upon zoning changes and we're happy to tell you about our good record in administrative hearings on zoning matters.
Commercial Property Transactions
The Ohio Supreme Court throws the normal protections out the window for real estate buyers of commercial property. Their position is "everyone in a transaction should have a lawyer." If you aren't represented, you won't know what you don't know about in the sale contract. Our Property division handles commercial building sales, from hotels to strip malls and all manner of other investment properties. We fix problems from prior commercial deals that were not done right. Call us before doing your next deal and we'll make sure you are protected.
Modern real estate development is far more complicated than it used to be. Developers sit in the middle between sellers and institutional buyers, bearing much of the risk and expense of the deal. We'll sit there next to you, making sure that your development deals are written properly and followed. We have represented clients in disputes with cities, national companies and local authorities. L&G is comfortable representing any position at the bargaining table and we bring that positional knowledge to your representation.
