Due Diligence

When you are pursuing corporate real estate matters like development, purchasing a factory, office space, or specialized use facility (such as medical or lab space), leasing, or selling‐ our attorneys conduct detailed legal due diligence investigations. We focus on providing value and clarity for our clients so that you have all the information you need for the deal, the provisions, and the risks involved. Due diligence in real estate transactions has many factors: the condition of the property, financial matters of all involved parties, zoning and other regulatory considerations. Without the due diligence and counsel of an experienced Los Angeles commercial real estate attorney, you could end up purchasing a property that is worthless or even detrimental to your company. SLG offers legal services for virtually all types of commercial real estate, including office, industrial, retail, multi‐family, media and entertainment, hospitality, and mixed‐use developments.

Negotiations During the Transaction

Even the best real estate agents typically do not have knowledge of many facets of commercial real estate law, which means they cannot provide you with the answers you need to maximize your real estate transactions. Our Los Angeles corporate real estate attorneys have the legal experience, business acumen, and capital market connections to provide you with dependable legal counsel for structuring real estate transactions centered around your goals and needs. If you are on the seller’s side, our attorneys will help identify any potential judgments, title issues, zoning issues, and other matters that could affect your property's value on the market. If prospective buyers or their agents feel that the property's value is lower than you do, this information can be used to justify the list price and try to stay on track with your sales negotiations.

Structure Law Group, LLP’s real estate attorneys have experience in all stages of corporate real estate that enables us to provide comprehensive counsel for our clients throughout the full cycle of ownership. We aim to negotiate for you to minimize litigation risk and position disputes, to provide fast, fair, beneficial transactions whenever possible. However, if litigation does arise, our litigators are well prepared to represent your interests aggressively.

Ownership and Financial Planning

Whenever property is purchased, the buyer has options for how to take the title and how to finance the property. When a business entity is involved ‐ be it a partnership, LLC, corporation, or sole proprietorship ‐ even more options are available. Our attorneys will work with you and take the time to understand your business plan and strategies for growth so that we can identify the benefits and risks of your financing and title options so that you can be confident in your selection. We focus on adding value for our clients. SLG’s Los Angeles attorneys have extensive experience in forming LLCs and partnerships to hold title to real property, as well as structuring joint ventures and tenancies in common. We also work with real estate purchasers and sellers to determine the feasibility of and to structure Section 1031 tax deferred exchanges.

Strategic Tax Planning

Commercial real estate provides various tax advantages. Our Los Angeles real estate attorneys are knowledgeable of both real estate and tax laws and procedures necessary to formulate a tax plan to segregate your costs and maximize your deductions. If any or all of your corporate properties are rentals, we can help you to identify and deduct certain maintenance costs from your taxable income. By providing you with a comprehensive tax strategy, our attorneys will address both short‐ and long‐term financial goals for your business.

Contingency Planning

One lesson we have learned during the COVID‐19 pandemic, is to expect the unexpected. Most property owners in America probably never imagined a world in which there was a broad nationwide moratorium on most evictions. It may not be possible to plan for every possible contingency that could affect your property's value, but the sign of the times is that it is imperative to have detailed contingency plans in place.

SLG attorneys have successfully handled complicated lease and contingency related disputes, representing landlords and tenants in matters of lease terms, property use, provisions relating to rent, construction, hazardous materials, insurance coverage, or assignment and sublet provisions.
