Experienced Real Property Lawyers Serving Clients Statewide in Ohio

Our clients include real estate investment trusts, commercial brokers, property management companies, developers, owners of developed or unimproved property, construction companies, commercial lessors and mortgage lenders. Our lawyers have also served as court-appointed receivers in distressed property or development situations, often achieving the eventual sale of the subject property at significantly enhanced value. We also work with banks and other lenders in possession of commercial properties.
