REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS AND DISPUTES

Jimerson Birr’s lawyers have been active real estate law counselors through both strong and weak real estate and capital market cycles, including those markets which accompanied the rapid expansion and subsequent market collapses related to the dot.com busts around the turn of the century, the consumer- and debt-driven housing bull market of the mid-2000’s, the financial crisis which precipitated the “Great Recession” of 2008 and 2009, and the period of long, slow recovery since the Great Recession ended. During these market cycles, Jimerson Birr lawyers have demonstrated that our clients can rely on our sound judgment and wisdom as they weigh risks and opportunities in deciding when to invest, when to sell, and importantly, when to stay on the sidelines.
