Real Estate Law

Real estate lawyers providing guidance in complex transactions and real estate litigation.

Our Real Estate Law Practice

Real estate law, to the outside observer, might appear to be a rather narrow specialty, when, in fact, it is a broad and diverse practice area. It spans from real estate closings to real estate litigation, from commercial leasing to zoning and land use.

And within those broader real estate law practice areas there are further subspecialties. Real estate litigation can be title litigation or construction litigation or real estate contract litigation. A real estate transaction can involve landlord tenant law or real estate finance law or title law or purchase and sale law or all of the above.

The areas practiced by the real estate attorneys at Williams Teusink are as varied as the practice of real estate law itself. Whether you need to draft a real estate contract, fight a code enforcement action, or foreclose on a property, there is a member of our team of lawyers who is ready, willing, and able to provide assistance.
