Real estate construction and development issues are complex and each project contains many moving parts. Our construction and development clients, who are some of the largest and most successful developers and investors in the Los Angeles and Southern California region, trust us to guide them through the complexities involved, from the start of a project to the end. Given Mr. Costell’s extensive experience as a hands-on developer, we have the expertise to help assess the viability of and to help effectuate new construction projects and added-value, horizontal and vertical development projects, including addressing the interplay between development goals and land use and environmental restrictions. We help our clients bring a project from the concept stage to completion, all along the pipeline, assisting with joint venture or other ownership and development arrangements; property acquisition and due diligence; construction, mezzanine, equity, preferred equity and other project financing; land use, entitlements, environmental and other regulatory approvals; construction, architect, engineer, design and other professional services contracts, as well as the sale, lease or refinance of the finished product.
Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the legal principles that impact the real estate construction, development, finance, investment and land use and entitlement industries.
