Commercial Real Estate

Bridgeview, IL Commercial Real Estate Attorneys Serve Business Property Owners and Tenants

Attorneys help clients make effective economic use of their land and buildings

Commercial real estate transactions often raise complicated issues not common in residential real estate deals. Counseling buyers, sellers, lenders, developers, lessors and lessees in such deals demands an attorney with an in-depth knowledge of commercial financing as well as federal, state and local laws governing land use, taxes and tenants’ rights. If you are a commercial property owner or lessee or you plan to purchase or rent business property, whether for development or other uses, Skinner Law Firm, P.C. has the requisite experience and legal knowledge to serve your needs.

Effective counsel assist businesses with a range of commercial real estate issues

Commercial real estate is a major financial asset and transactions affecting its ownership and use require careful and precise legal handling. We give close and thorough careful attention to all legal issues involved with a constant focus on protecting our clients’ interests. This includes:

  • Sitting down with you to determine what you need to accomplish and how best to achieve it
  • Negotiating, drafting, reviewing and amending contracts to ensure that they carry out your needs and objectives
  • Closing deals that acquire the property you need to use commercially
  • Assisting you with the commercial development of the property, addressing legal issues involving planning, financing, construction and dealing with contractors and subcontractors
  • Obtaining the appropriate zoning, building, business and other permits
  • Developing and implementing strategies for obtaining zoning approvals or variances
  • Addressing the Americans for Disability Act and other state and federal requirements
  • Securing mortgages, insurance and other necessary services
  • Leasing premises to commercial tenants or from commercial landlords

We use our deep understanding of commercial and real estate law to evaluate the legal ramifications of every step along the way, anticipating and preparing for potential problems as we guide you through the transaction at hand.

  • Claims by contractors and subcontractors
  • Appeals of zoning decisions
  • Right-of-way and other easement conflicts
