Real estate attorneys representing buyers and sellers of commercial real estate in Seattle and Tacoma

Buying or selling commercial real estate can be a complicated transaction that often involves tremendous sums of money changing hands. In addition, these transactions can implicate laws as varied as zoning regulations, land use restrictions, state and federal regulations, and common law court decisions.

Many different parties may have an interest in the purchase or sale of commercial real estate, including businesses, developers, construction companies, investors, and potential tenants.

The experienced real estate attorneys at the Dickson Frohlich represent these and other parties who may be involved in the sale or purchase of commercial properties and have the experience to provide effective and solution-oriented representation.


A commercial real estate attorney can help in a variety of ways

In many cases, the assistance of a commercial real estate attorney is essential in making sure that your transaction goes smoothly and that your best interests are fully represented. Some of the specific ways that an attorney can help include:

  • Due diligence1 investigations
  • Assistance in property valuation
  • Drafting or review of the purchase agreement
  • Negotiation on your behalf
  • Counsel and advice on the tax implications of your purchase or sale
  • Representation before various bodies or agencies such as zoning commissions2 and municipal boards3
  • Assistance with obtaining and choosing a financing option

Conducting thorough contract review to ensure our clients’ needs are met

Purchase agreements involving commercial real estate can be extremely complicated and difficult to understand, even for the most sophisticated of parties. As a result, it is important for both buyers and sellers to have their purchase agreement reviewed by an attorney who understands the various issues that can arise in commercial real estate transactions.

If there are terms unfavorable to your position, your attorney will be able to recognize those terms and attempt to negotiate an alternative agreement.

I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate this firm! These guys helped me through one of the most challenging legal situations I’ve faced in my life. Their skill and expertise literally saved my business. I’ve dealt with other counsel in the past but the Dickson firm was by far the most competent and tactful counsel I’ve ever received. I would recommend this group to anyone!
