Real Estate Law

Even as markets rise and fall, the importance of the land upon which we build our homes and businesses remains constant.

Our real estate practice recognizes the significant role that real estate plays and offers the expertise necessary to guide our clients. 

We represent players and investors on all sides of real estate equations, including title insurers and insureds, lenders and borrowers, buyer and sellers, landlords and tenants, developers, builders, contractors, and owners.  We advise clients in disputes involving real estate ownership, contracts, developments, commercial and residential leases, title insurance, escrow, brokers, construction, bankruptcy, tenancy, and foreclosure.  Real estate law can be highly technical and requires the active involvement of attorneys who are familiar with the terrain.  Levato knows the territory and reaches effective resolutions for its clients.
