Real Estate

Our real estate practice supports private equity firms, their portfolio companies, and other clients in a wide range of transactions, bringing an efficient working style and an intensely practical sensibility to our matters. 

Often, we assist private equity firms and portfolio companies with real estate issues that are ancillary to M&A transactions. This work often includes:

  • Acquisition of real property and title work with respect to existing owned real property.
  • Review of leases, with an eye to any provisions that may be problematic for our client as a new owner or upon a future sale.
  • Negotiation of new or amended leases (whether with the seller, its affiliates, or third parties), regularly securing advantageous terms.
  • Executing sale-leaseback transactions, often on a very fast track and with multiple locations. We are highly experienced in these transactions, which allow portfolio companies and buyers to immediately extract the ownership value of real estate on which an acquired or existing business sits.

Our additional real estate work includes handling leases for operating companies on an ongoing basis and buying and selling properties.

Finn Dixon & Herling’s real estate group takes an unapologetically commercial approach to our work. Given our experience serving private equity firms and other sophisticated parties, we know what issues require their attention—and which they prefer us to take the lead on. We also distinguish clearly between deal terms that matter and academic issues that do little more than occupy lawyer time and slow deals down.

Ultimately, we deliver service that minimizes the attention our clients must devote to real estate transactions, while getting them done as efficiently as possible.
