Philadelphia Real Estate Lawyer

A substantial portion of our firm’s practice is devoted to representing clients in matters related to real estate disputes. With local and regional real estate markets constantly changing, the complexity of deals and the range of interested participants continues to grow and, with it, the likelihood of disagreement and conflict.

We have handled nearly every type of real estate litigation, from commercial landlord/tenant disputes to conflicts over ownership, title, liens and encumbrances, easements, and the rights to own, develop and occupy real estate. We have represented real estate developers, property owners, brokers, landlords, tenants and other stakeholders in real property in disputes with individuals and businesses, as well as with public and quasi-public organizations and entities.
