Real Estate

Overview

Our substantial real estate practice offers advice and solutions to lenders, developers, and commercial landlords and tenants.  We counsel developers and lenders in the acquisition, leasing and financing of real estate and in the construction of industrial plants, residential developments, major office buildings, hotels, and hospitals throughout Louisiana and the South.  We also handle closings and issue title insurance through our affiliated title company Lewis Title Co., Inc.

Our attorneys have drafted and negotiated leases for both landlords and tenants of office buildings, telecommunications facilities, industrial park complexes, as well as right-of-way agreements for public and private purposes.  We also have represented numerous property owners before the Louisiana Tax Commission and local municipalities in matters relating to property tax assessments, as well as before local planning and zoning boards in connection with zoning matters.
