Commercial Real Estate Litigation
Complex, High-Stakes Commercial Real Estate Litigation
If eminent domain is around the corner or if your real property has been damaged by a governmental or private entity, you need legal counsel you can trust. Your business, your livelihood and your right to retain the advantages of your location are on the line. While the outcome of your case cannot be guaranteed, you will feel secure and well-informed with Peterson Law Group on your side. From law offices in Irvine and Los Angeles, the firm regularly takes on challenges involving:
- Disputes over property rights: An owner’s ability to use and enjoy a building and/or a piece of land.
- Disputes over commercial real estate, which is the single most significant asset of a business in most cases.
- Condemnation, the formal act of transferring title of private property to a unit of government: Was the valuation of your property proper and fair?
- Attempted or imminent takeover of your property by a government entity such as for construction of the California High Speed rail project, the Metro Rail Purple Line project or a Caltrans highway project.
- Disputes over developer agreements and financial details of development contracts.
- Disputes over construction defects, structural failures and hazardous materials.
- Disputes over dangerous conditions on public property, such as road cave-ins and lack of appropriate warning signs.
- Disputes versus insurers or government entities over damage to property, including earth movement such as landslides and debris flow.

A Real Estate Litigation Attorney Who Works Closely With And Zealously For Clients

Peterson and other attorneys at the firm work hard to keep clients well-informed, so they will be prepared to make decisions in their own best interests throughout a case.
Results in real estate litigation vary depending on the unique aspects of each case. Favorable outcomes may include remuneration for damage, just compensation for land seized for public use and/or cancelation of a condemnation threat. A lawyer’s understanding of a client’s goal is vital, as well as a client’s understanding of limitations and opportunities.
