Commercial Real Estate Law

“Our commercial real estate clients use our skills in development, acquisition, leasing, financing, vendor and sub-contractor agreements, and real estate closing and sales contracts.”

GreeneHurlocker provides commercial real estate counsel to its clients, not only as attorneys, but also as partners who have been on the client side of the table. The firm offers a diverse toolkit of services to corporate and individual clients that are based in the mid-Atlantic or are conducting transactions there. Our advice is informed by exposure to a wide variety of transactions – purchases, sales options, leases, financings – across the commercial real estate classes of land, retail, office, industrial, multifamily, and NNN investment property.

Partner Jared Burden, whose background includes being a real estate broker and development executive, leads a practice focused on identifying key issues from both legal and business perspectives.  We are keenly aware that any commercial real estate transaction is a bit of a journey, one demanding patience, persistence and flexibility of the principal, whether a buyer, seller, lessee, lessor, borrower or lender.

We stand by a client’s side in all phases of commercial real estate transactions, including:

  • Developing real estate strategy,
  • Identifing sites for purchase, development or leasing,
  • Negotiating of the purchase agreement, lease, CCRs, and other definitive agreements,
  • Obtaining land use and other approvals from counties, counties and agencies,
  • Analyzing title,
  • Addressing environmental concerns, and importantly,
  • Closing the deal.


As well, we work closely with our renewable energy clients as they identify and acquire property for lease or purchase and in obtaining necessary land use approvals.


We know this from experience: no two commercial real estate transactions are alike, whether the simplest lease or a complex assemblage of parcels. We’ve come to expect the unexpected.  Our clients find that our ability to have a window into both sides of the deal is a valuable asset.
