Developing the Reality of the American Dream
Building Real Estate and Construction Opportunities
Archer Norris is a business law firm aligned with the real estate and construction industries. In good times we help clients build, buy and sell, and comply with local and state and federal regulations. In less good times, we innovate and negotiate workouts, minimize obstacles and maximize opportunities, and support the viability of clients’ real property assets.
Focus on California Properties and Projects
Established during the West's post-WWII economic surge, Archer Norris represents developers, property owners, construction companies, municipalities and their insurers. We work with active players in California’s housing market, which is the biggest in the nation and considered an economic driver of the state’s economy and American building industry.
Expanding the Frontier and Gaining Regulatory Approval
The population isn’t decreasing and they're not making any more dirt. Consequently, real estate and construction opportunities carry more regulations and legal challenges than ever before. Archer Norris attorneys provide comprehensive commercial real estate counsel. Our services range from drafting lease agreements and structuring sophisticated financings to securing tough discretionary approvals and high-stakes litigation.
Focus on Real Estate, Land Use and Construction
Mainstays of our real estate counsel include complex transactions, title matters and guidance on Department of Real Estate regulatory issues. For land use concerns, we regularly manage such issues as zoning amendments, use permits and variances, and development agreements. In construction matters, our in-depth representation includes construction defects, injuries, insurance issues and business operational matters such as contracts, agreements, and mechanics liens and bonds.
