Real Estate Development

Together, we can build the future, restore and enhance property values, and ensure a healthy return on your real estate investment. Whether you are a Fortune 100 company interested in overseas property, or a nonprofit or commercial developer, investor, buyer or seller in our local community, our lawyers have the expertise to assist you at every stage of the real estate development process, from due diligence at the outset of a project, to deal closing and beyond.

If there’s a government or public relations hiccup in the process, we can call on our public affairs subsidiary, McGuireWoods Consulting, to leverage strong connections at every level of government, prevent or minimize damage to your reputation, and help you regain control of public messaging. Our tax lawyers and public affairs consultants can help you identify incentives and develop public-private partnerships to fund infrastructure and large-scale real estate development projects. And, should a legal conflict arise during any stage of the process, our seasoned litigators can defend your interests and keep you on track to meeting your business goals.

Ideally positioned and experienced for the challenges of today’s real estate market, our lawyers are well-prepared to address all issues of environmental regulation and permitting – a growing concern as a shortage of strategic property leads developers to reclaim and redevelop attractively located properties once considered too challenging. We also offer unique skills and experience in the area of green building and sustainability – an expertise that differentiates McGuireWoods from our competitors.
