Experienced Commercial Real Estate Advisors

The attorneys in our Real Estate practice guide buyers, sellers and lenders through the complex issues surrounding commercial real estate transactions.

Our attorneys understand the legal and business considerations associated with commercial, agricultural and residential real estate transactions and rely on their extensive experience to offer solutions designed to help clients achieve their goals. Because of their deep knowledge and experience, our attorneys are frequently invited to speak on the many aspects involved with commercial real estate. In fact, several of our attorneys are state certified to teach professional development courses to real estate professionals across Washington.

We counsel clients on leasing, purchases and sales, financing, property management, and development in a diverse range of real estate matters, including those involving agricultural properties, industrial sites, multi-unit housing and telecommunications sites. We advise clients on related service, office and retail agreements, such as site acquisition, and design and construction services.
