Greenberg Glusker has earned a reputation as one of Los Angeles’ best real estate law firms. Our Real Estate Litigation Group plays a critical role in this renown. We work closely with our Firm’s transactional department to provide full service to our real estate clients. We represent a wide range of real estate clients, including residential and commercial developers, lenders, golf course operators, hotel and resort owners and operators, owners of office and shopping centers, tenants in office and retail properties, commercial and residential brokerage firms, title insurers, construction companies and real estate investors. The Firm’s litigators prosecute and defend litigation involving contract, construction defect, environmental and landlord-tenant disputes. We have particular success representing investors and developers in complex partnership disputes relating to the ownership and development of commercial and residential real estate projects. In our eminent domain practice, we assist clients in responding to threatened takings of their real property interests by governmental and private entities that have threatened eminent domain. Our efforts range from assisting property owners and tenants in preventing or limiting the scope of the taking, to maximizing both the compensation paid for the taking and our client’s share of the compensation. We regularly handle disputes involving real estate and land use. We assist clients in either the defense of, or challenges to, the validity of legislation and governmental decisions. We represent clients in land use entitlements and zoning, moratoriums, conditional use permits, variances, coastal development permits, subdivisions, design review, redevelopment projects, building permits, rent control regulations, development fees and restrictions, and leases of government land. We also advise clients in either defending or challenging the adequacy of project reviews under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
