Real Estate Disputes

Closing a real estate transaction is always the primary goal for our clients, but sometimes disputes complicate issues and litigation services may be needed. Closings may be delayed or disputes can arise after a sale is concluded or a commercial lease is signed. Rossway Swan’s experienced team of litigators and commercial real estate lawyers is available to protect our client’s interests and help find a timely solution at any stage of a dispute. We work closely with our clients to analyze and manage risks and develop efficient, cost-effective strategies to meet their goals. We are adept at finding practical solutions to resolve real estate related problems, whether in court, through mediation or arbitration, or through a business resolution.

Blending a broad knowledge of real estate law and business practice with well-honed skills in litigation and alternative dispute resolution, our real estate litigators provide practical advice and counsel throughout the life cycle of a real estate project.

We are experienced in handling disputes surrounding the acquisition of property, regulatory approval of a development, construction of the project, management and leasing of buildings, environmental and regulatory compliance, government eminent domain and regulatory takings, foreclosures and restructuring of financial obligations, and the management and operation of business entities focused on real estate investments.

Our practice encompasses issues related to:

  • Adverse possession
  • Construction disputes
  • Easements
  • Homeowners and Condominium Association disputes
  • Land use (environmental/zonings)
  • Lease disputes
  • Purchase/sell agreement disputes
  • Regulatory enforcement actions
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Title disputes
  • Transfer Act litigation

The firm’s litigation attorneys routinely use arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as pragmatic ways to meet our clients’ needs.

Above all, Rossway Swan strives to serve as a trusted legal advisor for our individual and corporate clients throughout the entirety of the litigation process.
