A solid legal foundation combined with sophisticated insight in real estate and construction matters provides the framework to help get your projects off the ground.

Buckley King handles a full range of residential, commercial and industrial real estate projects. We have experience in governmental contracts, construction funding and dispute resolution. Our engagements include mixed-use developments in large office parks and the development, acquisition and sale of office buildings and industrial facilities. We regularly assist institutional real estate owners and users in evaluating and structuring acquisition, disposition and leasing projects.

Our guidance is focused on minimizing delays, limiting exposure, and mitigating costs. With knowledge in the state and federal laws governing real estate transactions, Buckley King works with brokers, underwriters, lenders, governmental agencies, contractors, and other professionals to close deals on time and on budget.

Understanding Environmental Challenges

Employing decades of experience working with local, state and federal regulators on environmental challenges, including environmental laws affecting businesses and landowners such as clean air and water, we assist clients in the acquisition and development of contaminated commercial property, including due diligence and remediation plans, conservation easements, and other restrictions on land use. Our attorneys have litigated, mediated and arbitrated matters involving wetlands, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), Superfund, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Utilizing our knowledge in environmental matters, clients can better evaluate the risks and determine the best strategies to bring about effective solutions.
