Developments Begin with Our Real Estate Lawyers
At Coats Rose, our lawyers help our clients navigate the complexities of real property ownership and investment – buying, selling, developing, building, improving, entitling, operating, managing, leasing, financing and lending. Our clients own, finance and invest in all types of real property – office, retail, shopping centers, corporate campus, industrial, warehouse, storage, energy, medical, research, subdivision, multi-family, condominium, senior and other specialty housing, entertainment, hospitality, transportation, service, build-to-suit, owner-occupied and agricultural. Our clients are local, national and international owners, developers, investors and lenders and include traditional and unique players, in both the public and private sectors. Our vast experience has included advisement on all sides of real estate transactions.
In development, our representation often begins with the negotiation of purchase or sale agreements and continues through due diligence and financing to closings. We assist clients with construction, engineering and architectural contracts and public and private development agreements. We assist clients in private land use management through innovative ownership structures, CCRs and property-owner associations. We also assist clients in day-to-day matters, such as property management agreements and service contracts.
In leasing matters, we have represented both landlords and tenants in many different settings, from office buildings, shopping centers, pad sites and single-user properties, to manufacturing facilities, transportation facilities and specialized medical facilities.
In investment, we assist clients with the formation and governance of joint ventures, partnerships, corporations and LLCs and other ownership structures. We represent institutional and private lenders as well.
We are also experienced in representing owners in matters affecting the development and use of their properties. This experience includes working with federal, state and local governments and agencies. We have handled matters for clients in cities and towns including: Arlington, Austin, Dallas, Denton, Flower Mound, Fort Worth, Fulshear, Irving, Missouri City, Pearland, Rockwall and Sugar Land. We have also worked with municipalities and their planning and zoning departments, with county commissioners, and with agencies such as the Texas Department of Transportation, the Harris County Toll Road Authority and the North Texas Turnpike Authority. We are experienced in platting and subdivision, planned use development, master planning, mixed-use planning and development, variances, specific use permits and conventional and form-based zoning.
