Real Estate Law

At HHB, we let our real estate clients worry about the three most important aspects of any project: location, location and location. Everything else is our responsibility. We represent developers, owners, lenders, tenants, and other interested parties in a wide range of real property issues, from acquisitions and leasing matters through foreclosures and the sale process. Whether your project is commercial or residential, a condominium or leasing opportunity, we provide our own three important aspects to your legal issues: service, value and expertise. When you work with HHB attorneys, you can rest assured that your real estate project is on a firm foundation.

When you find yourself in a situation you did not ask to be in, you know you can always count on HHB to help get you out.
