Real Estate Law
Knowledge, experience, dedication, and personal service – these are the foundations of the Koley Jessen Real Estate legal team, and what every client can expect from us.
Whether our clients’ objectives are a complex real estate development and financing project, or a fairly routine purchase, sale or lease of commercial or residential property, our Omaha-based real estate attorneys work to structure the transaction in a manner that reduces inherent risks and maximizes realizable benefits for our clients. We are, at heart, transaction attorneys. Our job is to help our clients get their deals done. We understand that to each client, satisfactory resolution of its current transaction or problem is critical. Regardless of the size or nature of the transaction or problem, we approach the project with a similar attitude. Our services include:
Real Estate Transactions: We represent buyers, sellers, developers, landlords, and tenants in transactions involving all sizes and types of commercial, industrial, office, and retail properties.
Due Diligence: We perform and coordinate due diligence in the acquisition and financing of real estate for investment, development, occupancy, sales, leasing, and collateralization.
Financing: We represent our clients in negotiating and closing on acquisition financing, construction financing, and permanent financing.
Operations: We assist clients in the operation of their properties, including properties owned and occupied partly or entirely by our clients, as well as single- or multi-tenanted properties owned, leased, or managed by our clients.
Construction: We negotiate construction and construction-related contracts for the design, construction, and occupation of new construction, tenant improvements, or rehabilitation of existing facilities.
Planning/Zoning/Regulatory: We assist and coordinate with clients in working with local city and state officials across the country with respect to planning, zoning, traffic, storm water management, and compliance matters related to the development, redevelopment, and use of property.
