Acquisitions and Dispositions

Our clients know Sherin and Lodgen can handle large and complex real estate deals. We have years of hands-on experience and one of the deepest real estate benches in New England. Clients know we complete deals effectively, efficiently and on often-demanding deadlines.

Clients often look to us to partner with them and their team. Our real estate attorneys strive to understand the business challenges of the transaction, combining sophisticated legal acumen with practical insights. This perspective applies to everything we do, whether it is assembling parcels for large-scale retail and mixed-use developments, buying or selling shopping centers, major office buildings or other commercial properties, or acquiring land for the construction of manufacturing and logistics facilities.

Our attorneys are comfortable taking the lead on the deal or working as a member of the client's team. Whatever our role, we won't let a deal stall.

Our capabilities include the following:

  • Purchase or sale of a portfolio of real estate holdings
  • Structuring, reviewing and negotiating joint venture and financing arrangements
  • Entitlement, environmental and land-use analyses
  • Dispositions of single sites or portfolios through direct sales or sale-leasebacks
  • Granular due diligence projects
  • Multi-party ground lease and air rights developments

Clients rely on our advice before, during and after the deal has closed. We manage matters with a sense of proportion, offering clients legal resources on a scale appropriate for the transaction.
