Real Estate Development

McGuireWoods provides legal counsel in a wide range of traditional and nontraditional real estate development transactions, including zoning, economic development and redevelopment matters. We have represented clients across the country on all sides of the negotiating table, and are recognized by our peers as among the top practitioners in the field. In its annual list “Best Law Firms,” U.S. News & World Report includes McGuireWoods as a National Tier 1 firm in “Land Use & Zoning Law” and among the top national and local firms in “Real Estate Law.” The publication’s “Best Lawyer” list also includes a number of McGuireWoods lawyers. In ranking McGuireWoods as a Band 1 real estate practice, Chambers USA describes our team as a “popular choice for statewide and regional real estate work thanks to its excellent breadth and depth of practice.”

Our practice is diverse and coordinated, and has substantial depth in representing Fortune 100 companies around the world. We frequently serve as lead counsel in the acquisition, development, financing, leasing and/or divestiture of real estate assets in domestic and international negotiations, and have extensive experience in the coordination and management of complex multistate transactions. We provide guidance in the drafting and negotiation of leases, financing and construction documents, purchase, reciprocal easement and site-development agreements, and title claims. Such transactional representation is often complemented by assistance from the firm’s environmental group and by our role as land use counsel.

We represent tenants, landlords, developers, lenders, syndicators, brokers, entrepreneurs, buyers, sellers and investors in all types of real estate development transactions such as the acquisition, financing, planning, zoning, construction, leasing and sale of real estate. For example, we have recently advised several national food and electronics retailers in the development of major distribution. As legal advisors, we have maintained long-standing relationships with parties on all sides of such matters. Over the course of our representation, we have developed numerous best practices and a strong institutional knowledge that uniquely streamline processes.
