DC Commercial Real Estate Litigation Attorneys

“When it comes time to litigate know that you have the most fierce attorneys in the room on your side.”

Chris D.

When a dispute arises over real property, and the stakes are high, it pays to make sure you have the right legal counsel representing you in commercial real estate litigation. Antonoplos & Associates commercial real estate litigation attorneys pride themselves on their experience as litigators. Rather than taking the traditional, predictable approach to commercial real estate litigation, we view each case as asymmetric warfare, the job of our commercial real estate lawyers is to make sure that you come out on top.

At Antonoplos & Associates, our commercial real estate lawyers analyze each case, examine our opponent’s strengths and weaknesses and then attack our opponents in the areas that provide the best opportunities for success. In so doing, we consistently provide our clients with the most efficient path to favorable results in their commercial real estate litigation. In some engagements, our commercial real estate lawyers may decide this means negotiating a deal with creative terms favorable to our client. In other engagements, our commercial real estate attorneys may decide that this means pursuing scorched earth commercial real estate litigation. In short, we are professional problem solvers and like an insurgency, we will not stop until we win. We will do whatever it takes to put our clients in the most favorable position to prevail. Period.

In order to live up to this standard, we employ a sophisticated team approach first developed at Yale University SOM. Real estate litigation often presents diverse issues, each with its own set of challenges that require specific expertise. For each case, we pick our team, the expertise, skills, and tactics that are necessary for our clients to win. Our commercial real estate attorneys have built an impressive track record for successfully litigating in the following areas:
