Acquisitions & Dispositions
Whether you are an individual or joint venture investor, a real estate investment company purchasing portfolio assets, or a corporation selling or buying real estate in the ordinary course of business, we have the experience to handle all your acquisitions and dispositions, including multi-family, office (including medical office), industrial, laboratory, retail and shopping centers, raw land, and pre-permitted sites.
CRELaw represents both lenders and borrowers in simple and complex financing transactions. Attorney Caggiano has negotiated and closed substantial institutional, government-subsidized and private mortgage loans for industrial, commercial and multi-family lenders and borrowers.
We have reviewed, prepared and negotiated thousands of leases in all real estate sectors including commercial, office, industrial, laboratory, and ground leases. Our representation of landlords and tenants gives us perspective from both sides of the negotiation table, as well as insight into the latest issues facing sophisticated space users and owners today.
Zoning & Permitting
We represent clients before local and state zoning, conservation, and other boards and public agencies in connection with developments of all kinds, including multi-family, mixed-use, affordable housing, assisted living, and billboard projects throughout Massachusetts. We focus not only on the application process itself, but also on identifying key decision-makers and influencers within the underlying municipality and surrounding community to achieve buy-in and maximize success.
We guide clients through environmental analysis, evaluate potential environmental law problems, and assist with remediation and compliance initiatives.
Real Estate Entities & JV Agreements
We create the appropriate entity and operative agreements for real estate ownership, investment, management and development to suit our client's needs, including preparation of operating, partnership, shareholder, joint venture and site development agreements.
Enterprises with large real estate portfolios, especially those without an in-house real estate legal team, are often focused more on transactions and operations than they are on understanding and maximizing new technology, systems, processes and talent to eliminate organizational deficits and costs while optimizing quality, consistency and efficiency. CRELaw will study your company's existing methods and recommend and implement new or revised methods to lower costs while enhancing effectiveness and overall enterprise value.
Large Transaction Management
Clients of CRELaw enjoy a significant advantage over clients of large law firms: unlike large law firms, which are incentivized to use their own in-house manpower regardless of expertise and cost, CRELaw is able to handpick and assemble teams of professionals from various law firms and other sources to efficiently execute the project at hand. As a former partner at a large law firm, Attorney Allan Caggiano is adept at leading and managing large teams of in-house and external lawyers, consultants, engineers, architects and other project professionals and team members.
