Developers and Real Estate Investors


The firm has extensive experience representing commercial and residential clients in the acquisition and the development of property throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Whether it is a turnkey operation for a specific industry, business or trade, or whether it is a multi-unit condominium conversion of an existing building, the firm knows how to address the complex legal issues inherent in any development project to ensure that the developer, investors and end line purchasers are satisfied with the final legal product.


Prudent site acquisition is the most important part of any development project, and determining whether a property is fit for development from a legal perspective is the job of an experienced real estate attorney. Our attorneys understand state and local subdivision, permitting and zoning laws governing all forms of commercial and residential development.


We will perform in depth title examinations on the most complex titles and issue title insurance policies backing the owner’s interests. We will further assist in securing development and property management agreements, as well as assist in the drafting of all documents relative to leased land.




We provide comprehensive legal representation for property owners seeking to convert residential and commercial buildings throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts to condominiums. Whether it is two units or fifty units, our firm is prepared to make the conversion process a successful one.


We will not only help you through the Massachusetts and Rhode Island regulatory and legal procedures for conversion, but we will also introduce you to other industry professionals who will assist in the conversion. Choosing the right Architect, Engineer, Surveyor, and General Contractor for the job is just as important as choosing the right legal professional to oversee your condominium project.
