Many of Dave’s clients are facing the age-old business challenge of reaching their goals while maximizing the value of legal counsel provided in service of achieving those goals. Dave offers a pragmatic and collaborative approach, working together with his clients to efficiently reach those business goals. Dave’s team-based approach helps clients understand the challenges before them, and creates a sound, strategic approach to overcoming them. Working through legal issues side-by-side with their counsel gives many clients a sense of the tangible value Dave brings to each and every project.
Case Studies / Success Story:
One of Dave’s clients was a lender engaged in the financing of an upscale condominium project. The borrower/developer was in default, and the client was considering taking title to a number of the condo units. Dave advised the client that if they took title they could potentially be liable for certain construction defects in the condominium unit. Dave’s counsel helped the client avoid a potentially massive liability pitfall and kept them from risky litigation exposure. By taking the time upfront to critically assess all of the client’s options, Dave was able to save the client time and navigate the client through a situation rife with the potential for exposure to significant liability.
The Real Estate Law Practice:
Complicated zoning codes and a restrictive financing environment can turn a simple redevelopment project into a difficult challenge. Given the highly specialized and complex regulatory process, it’s advantageous to have legal representation with significant expertise in real estate development, as well as equity and loan financing. At McGrath North, we offer real estate developers an in-depth knowledge of both the regulatory and financing processes. Our experienced legal team can assist you with complicated zoning codes and building approvals. We can advise you on preventing or resolving issues with potential opponents of your project. And we can guide you in the structuring and documentation of loan agreements or transactions involving equity investors.
If you’re considering seeking advice from counsel, here’s what we suggest you keep in mind:
- You want to be advised up front about the potential challenges and expenses you may face in your effort to obtain zoning and land use approval and financing.
- You want your counsel to have significant knowledge of your local zoning codes and issues involving the financing of your project.
