In the world of business and commercial disputes, having an experienced litigator on your side could mean the difference between a successful negotiation or a long, drawn-out court battle.
Real estate generates a substantial amount of litigation. While primarily implicating contract issues, we also regularly see torts arise from real estate circumstances, including professional negligence, actual fraud, and constructive fraud. Virginia also features a number of statutory provisions which govern real estate disputes, sometimes in contravention of historic common law.
We represent both real estate purchasers and sellers, including both builders and homeowners in construction disputes. We have extensive experience representing a variety of licensee professionals, including real estate agents, real estate brokers, real estate appraisers, title companies, and escrow agents. In addition to handling disputes over money, we also have experience litigating real property issues like express easements, prescriptive easements, and property line disputes.
We have litigated real estate disputes in every Court in the DC metropolitan area.
