Sophisticated counsel for sophisticated property needs

Our firm's real estate practice relates to our core practice in estate planning, tax planning, trusts and estates, and asset protection. Because real estate is such an important part of many clients' estates, creating an estate plan requires legal restructuring of the ownership of the real estate. For example, new limited liability entities may need to be formed to own and operate investment property, entities themselves owned by clients' trusts or by other entities owned in turn by clients' trusts. The logical reasons for such restructured ownership are compelling, but there are, of course, numerous technical details involved in carrying out the necessary transfers.

Residential and commercial real estate purchases

The Law Offices Of Michael T. Sawyier is also experienced in residential and commercial real estate purchases, sales, exchanges, and leases for clients seeking representation in such specific transactions, perhaps as part of their overall estate plans. Such transactional work goes hand-in-hand both with business acquisition matters and the administration of decedents' estates, since the sale of the real estate is often necessary. We welcome and regularly represent "stand-alone" real estate clients who are initially seeking representation in only specific transactions, such as a house purchase or sale or an office lease. Our total commitment to client service applies to every one of our clients. We also stand ready to extend that commitment at any time to any sort of real estate litigation that best serves our clients' interests.
