Commercial Real Estate transactions
are full of many potential gotchas...


Real Estate contracts are complex and subtleties can make them even more so. What seems like simple language around insignificant items can cause a deal to fall through unexpectedly.

Nuances of the process can get you to the closing table or keep you from it. A bad survey may invalidate title insurance and cause the deal to fall through.

Not having the proper guidance in negotiations can be costly. For example, the other party may require you to pay expenses that you're not obligated to.


With proper legal representation, you can move forward with peace of mind.

As a commercial property owner, you want your investment to be free of headaches. When the deal is wrapped tightly, your agreements should protect you from all the small "gotchas" that could add up to a frustrating experience.

At Wilensky & Jones, we apply our deep experience to your project, no matter how complex. We’ll ensure you are not inadvertently putting yourself at risk, making a bad negotiation, or getting held responsible for something that’s not yours to bear.

While our best work is done serving you from end to end, we can start with your Letter of Intent or can step in to advise you at any part of the process.  

We provide as much or as little guidance necessary for a successful transaction.
