Real Estate and Land Use

The attorneys in our Real Estate Department combine creativity, business acumen and client service to help clients achieve their business goals.  Farella's strength, as described by our clients, lies in the judgment, focus and insight of each member of the team.  We do far more than negotiate and craft legal documents for our clients; we add value to each engagement by understanding our individual client's business and aggressively negotiating the issues that are important to them.  With this knowledge, we assist clients to clarify goals, identify needs and focus on the critical elements of a transaction in order to achieve the desired outcome.  

Farella represents a full range of real estate and development clients including developers, investment funds, hoteliers, wineries, homebuilders, design professionals, investors, lenders and asset managers.  Our clients seek us out because of our innovative and creative approach to solving legal and business issues, and our experience handling every aspect of real estate transactions and development projects from acquisition through disposition, including entitlements and environmental review, entity formation, financing, construction, leasing and management.  When appropriate, we expand our client team with lawyers who focus on environmental, construction, insurance coverage, business transactions and income and property tax law.
