KJK’s Real Estate Practice Group engages in a comprehensive real estate practice representing a wide array of clients.  In the lifecycle of any business, and particularly as companies expand; leasing, buying, owning, selling, financing and developing real estate are important considerations. Real estate transactions are as diverse as the organizations and people who transact them.  KJK counsels buyers, sellers, owners, developers, landlords, tenants, investors, lenders, borrowers and businesses in residential, commercial, and industrial real estate projects and transactions.  We provide our clients with legal counsel, practical guidance and extensive experience in navigating all the stages of a real estate transactions from land acquisition through construction financing, lease-up and permanent financing.

Following project completion, we assist in the leasing and management of the property by drafting and negotiating leases and dealing with tenant matters. We also regularly handle refinancing and negotiate workouts on behalf of borrowers and lenders.  We have broad experience in diverse forms of real estate finance, representing both lenders and borrowers in acquisition and development loans, construction loans, permanent financing and economic incentives.

We also represent contractors and subcontractors seeking payment for their work through materialmen’s liens, public works liens, bond claims, and subsequent litigation.

KJK’s Real Estate Team, works closely with other practice groups within the firm to develop and implement inventive and practical approaches in assisting our clients with their real estate needs.  For example our litigation practice group assists clients in resolving construction and zoning disputes and our tax lawyers structure real estate transactions to take full advantage of the tax laws.
