Premier Real Estate Law Practice
Real estate law is a cornerstone of our firm’s legal practice. For over four decades, BBS&G attorneys have assisted clients in all aspects of commercial as well as residential real estate matters. We are experienced practitioners who are well known for providing practical, common-sense advice in complex and routine real property matters. Our firm works with clients in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and beyond to structure and negotiate transactions involving the purchase, sale, finance, leasing, and development of commercial and residential properties. We also counsel clients in all types of real estate litigation, including disputes involving landlords and tenants, zoning and land use issues and condemnation matters.
We deliver the knowledge and representation that clients need in order to achieve their real estate objectives. We understand that legal problems can stand in the way of success, so we develop solutions that allow our clients to move past their challenges and take advantage of critical opportunities. Our lawyers know the real estate industry and ensure that our clients have complete and reliable information to make the correct decisions for their particular circumstances.
Advancing the Practice of Real Estate Law
BBS&G attorneys are well recognized throughout the legal and business communities for their active involvement in practicing and shaping commercial real estate law. Members of our firm have written books on the subject, including Douglas Bregman who authored “the book” on Maryland landlord/tenant law (“Maryland Landlord-Tenant Law,” LexisNexis, fourth edition 2009). In addition to his legal practice, Douglas Bregman also serves as a law professor at Columbia Law School and the Georgetown University Law Center where he teaches courses on the drafting and negotiation of loan documents, real estate contracts, commercial leases, and other real estate documents. Other members of our firm, including Larry Berbert and Tim Schwartz, have lectured on real estate and landlord/tenant matters to legal practitioners across the country, and our lawyers have also served as active members of local and statewide committees involved in the clarification and revision of landlord/tenant law.
