Real Estate Law

Groom & Cave has substantial experience in a variety of areas involving real estate transactions and litigation, and represents many of Silicon Valley's most successful investment owners, developers and contractors, as well as pubic real estate investment trusts (Reits). Our representation in the real estate field is quite broad and includes the following:

  • Groom & Cave is continually engaged in transactions involving the negotiation and preparation of agreements involving the purchase, sale and development of real property, including the negotiation and preparation of agreements in connection with the financing and refinancing of such projects. We have successfully concluded many multi-million dollar projects for our clients.
  • We are very involved in representing our clients in connection with the negotiation and preparation of lease agreements for commercial, retail and industrial projects throughout California and other states. In connection therewith, we have substantial experience regarding matters involving property management, including all aspects of landlord-tenant relationships.
  • We provide legal representation involving property management to the owners of a very broad range of projects, from residential investment projects to the largest office, industrial and retail projects. Such clients include individual investors as well as institutional investors and national firms engaged in real estate management.
  • Because of the nature of our real estate practice, each of the attorneys in the firm has become very familiar with the laws, rules and regulations governing a variety of environmental issues concerning real property transactions. In this regard, we have been engaged to represent clients both for the purpose of avoiding liability for environmental damage and for the purpose of representation before a variety of federal, state and local regulatory agencies charged with the responsibility of overseeing the remediation of soil and groundwater contamination.

In connection with these activities, we have developed close working relationships with a number of hydrological, environmental and geotechnical engineering firms.
