MA Commercial Real Estate LawyersBoston Commercial Development Attorneys

The Cambridge law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry has a large commercial real estate practice serving developers, landlords, buyers and sellers of commercial property. We undertake all transactions and litigation required to achieve our clients' goals, guiding clients through complex processes such as the redevelopment of property or identifying sources of financing for a major construction project or condominium conversion.

Services for Developers

Our lawyers represent clients at all stages of their projects, from acquisition and assemblage of land to securing tenants and developing leases. We often start by establishing the appropriate business entity for the project such as an LLC, corporation, joint venture or business trust. We help secure capital from banks, public development agencies, private investors and others. We further help clients obtain zoning and construction permits and represent them before zoning boards of appeal. Along the way, we negotiate, draft and review the many contracts that are part of any major commercial development project. We work for our clients to facilitate the development of office buildings, shopping centers, mixed-use buildings, rental apartment, and single family housing complexes and condominiums.

Services for Commercial Building Owners

We also provide ongoing legal services to established commercial clients in matters such as leasing, developing condominium and association bylaws, representation before zoning and planning boards, and drafting letters of intent and options to buy or sell. We assist owners and managers of apartment buildings with tenant matters, supplier and tradesmen contracts, and financing issues. If legal disputes arise, we seek to resolve them through litigation or alternative dispute resolution methods. We serve both owners and lessees, providing clients with skilled and diligent representation that allows them to enjoy long-term success in their business ventures.
