Mixed-Use Developments

We provide innovative and unique legal services to developers, owners and investors of significant mixed-use developments in the southeastern United States.

As lead counsel in these dynamic deals, our lawyers have counseled and represented clients in all aspects of the acquisition, development, leasing, financing and structuring of their mixed-use projects. Our complete range of service extends to the conclusion of the sale of the various pieces of the mixed-use development to residential, hotel or office developers.

We have extensive experience in hotel, restaurant and resort development, joint ventures, public/private partnerships, tax structuring, environmental matters, employment and labor issues, intellectual property rights, real estate technology issues, transportation matters, utility issues, condominium formation and governance, owners’ association formation and structuring, and construction and permanent financing matters.

Our clients range from sophisticated mega-developers to smaller scale traditional mixed-use projects. We integrate seamlessly with clients’ contractors, advisors and in-house lawyers, as well as various governmental officials and representatives, lenders, potential or prospective business partners and members of the community-at-large. We are committed to helping clients achieve their business goals and objectives by implementing effective strategies that will ensure both short and long-term success.
