Real Estate Acquisition and Dispositions

Our experience, skill, and keen understanding of the priorities and pressures facing owners, investors, developers, and corporate users of real property has allowed us to quickly and efficiently close some of the largest and most complex real property acquisition and disposition transactions throughout the United States and beyond.

Venable's Real Estate lawyers regularly represent owners, developers, corporate users, and investors in real estate acquisitions and dispositions of a broad spectrum of real property. This includes office, multifamily, industrial, retail, and utility properties, as well as specialty properties, such as studio facilities and other media, sports and entertainment properties, hospitality properties, senior living facilities, single-family and master planned communities, university facilities, health care and technology campuses and facilities, data centers, agricultural properties and aviation facilities. Our clients include Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies, private equity funds, pension funds, investment management firms, public and private REITs, national and regional homebuilders, family offices and high-net-worth individuals.

We advise our clients throughout the acquisition and asset disposition process, starting with the negotiation of the letter of intent and the structuring of the transaction, through the negotiation and documentation of the purchase and sale agreement, and culminating with the closing. During this process we regularly collaborate with our tax, land use and zoning, environmental, construction, Maryland REIT, and corporate groups to structure and complete the transactions in a timely and efficient manner. Whether working on the acquisition of an iconic Hollywood studio, the disposition of an office building located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, or the acquisition and disposition of a multi-story "last-mile" distribution facility in Brooklyn, Venable's Real Estate Group understands the velocity of deal-making in today's real estate market, and has the resources, talent, and sophistication needed to get large and complex deals done on deadline and within our clients' budgets.
