Kostopoulos Rodriguez, PLLC has extensive experience in a wide range of complex real estate matters (both litigation and transactional matters) involving commercial and residential real property. We represent some of the largest real estate owners and developers in the Midwest, as well as general contractors, architects, subcontractors, construction managers, engineers, sellers, and buyers in public and private projects of any type and size.
KORO has successfully litigated construction disputes involving a wide variety of real estate disputes including purchase and sale contracts, issues that commonly arise during the development/construction process, construction lien rights, design, engineering and construction defects, foreclosures and work-outs, real estate financing, brokerage commission disputes, board licensing, tax assessments and appeals and partnership and joint venture agreements.
The success of our firm’s real estate and construction litigation practice is an innate extension of our work in complex commercial litigation matters. Our strength in real estate litigation is our understanding of contract law, our ability to devise and implement creative strategies and our experience and familiarity with technical construction/development issues.
Since real estate and construction disputes can oftentimes mean the difference between a profit and/or loss on a particular project, we strive to provide high-quality cost-effective service for our clients. To this end, we seek to resolve our clients’ disputes not only by litigation, but through pre-litigation negotiation and by the use of alternative dispute resolution processes (such as nonbinding facilitation and binding arbitration).
We also counsel clients in connection with non-litigation real estate and construction issues. For example, Kostopoulos Rodriguez, PLLC has counseled clients in the structuring of transactions and ownership interests, acquisition and disposition of properties and interests therein, development, leasing of real property, and assistance in obtaining construction and long-term financing and distressed property work-outs.
KORO's attorneys are skilled in negotiating and drafting a full range of agreements, including:
- Acquisition, development and disposition of real estate
- Title issues
- Real Estate Financing
- Leasing and Construction
- Covenants, conditions and restrictions
- Zoning, municipal and governmental matters
