Acquisition and Disposition

Acquisition and Disposition

SSL handles all aspects of acquisitions and dispositions of real property of all types, including office, industrial, warehouse, retail, and residential. We represent a wide array of buyers, sellers, developers and investors, including financial institutions, investment funds and REITs. In addition to more routine purchase and sale transactions, we have represented clients in deals that involve complicated land banking components (including option agreements for land bankers), as well as related land development.

In addition, with our broad range of real estate expertise, SSL attorneys have effectively lead the legal effort on major project and portfolio acquisitions, including negotiating purchase and sale agreements and loan documents, title and survey review, land use and zoning review, environmental due diligence and coordinating complex closings.

We have handled the purchase and sale of hundreds of multi-family residential, office and mixed-use buildings and complexes both within and outside California. In addition, SSL attorneys served as counsel for a leading Silicon Valley technology company in its assemblage of multiple properties for a new campus in a series of off-market transactions.

SSL routinely handles preparation and negotiation of purchase and sale and other transaction documents, as well as the related due diligence and title and survey review.
