Our real estate lawyers represent buyers and sellers of residential and commercial properties, mineral properties, ranches, property held for conservation purposes, and property to be developed for commercial or residential use. We work with tax free exchanges, federal land exchanges, and real estate issues arising from the ownership and transfer of mineral estates and water rights. We also provide advice to landlords and tenants regarding leases and perform significant retail lease work.
We assist clients in land use planning and zoning issues, representing them in front of governmental boards and commissions for purposes of obtaining necessary zoning approvals, changes and permits. Our attorneys have represented clients regarding real estate interests (including easements and licenses), land use, and zoning before trial and appellate courts. We are aware of our client's concerns for efficient and effective governmental processes, and strive to advise clients in a manner allowing them to complete the approval process expediently. Our real estate, land use and zoning lawyers work closely with our water resources, environmental and public lands lawyers on appropriate issues.
