McCollister, we represent developers, lenders, realtors, and individual and corporate clients in a variety of commercial and residential real estate closing transactions, including exchanges, real estate, refinancing, sales, and UCC secured transactions and work-outs. The firm also represents landlords, lenders, and tenants in negotiation and documentation of commercial and residential lease transactions, including free standing building leases, lease financing, and office, retail, and shopping center leases.

We negotiate and document a variety of complex real estate transactions, including condominium development and conversion, commercial and industrial facilities, golf course developments, merchant power and cogeneration plants, planned unit developments, and residential developments.
