Glen Ellyn commercial real estate entitlements attorney

Lawyers for Zoning, Land Use, Entitlements, and Construction in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, and Aurora

Real estate development can be a very lucrative pursuit, but it can also be very complex. Multiple parties may be involved in a commercial real estate transaction and in the planning and construction of a development project. To ensure that these projects can be completed correctly while avoiding delays, minimizing expenses, and following all applicable laws, real estate developers and others involved in a project can work with an attorney who is experienced in these matters.

At Guerard, Kalina & Butkus, we have represented clients in numerous real estate development projects, including multi-phased subdivisions and residential and commercial condominiums, as well as cases involving land acquisition and condemnation. We have provided representation in a wide variety of multi-million-dollar commercial transactions. With our understanding of commercial real estate law and our experience in corporate transactions, we can ensure that all legal issues are addressed correctly before, during, and after a development project.
