Real Estate

Stevens & Lee’s real estate team offers a broad base of practical experience representing owners, developers, financial institutions and others in a wide range of real estate-related matters, including acquisition, conveyances, land use approvals, financing, construction and leasing. Through our experience, we have established ourselves as aggressive and creative problem solvers who achieve results for our clients. We represent hospitals and health care providers, educational institutions, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regional shopping center developers, distribution park developers, retailers and residential developers.

Unlike many local firms, which are often limited in their geographic knowledge and reach, Stevens & Lee has skilled, well-respected professionals in diverse markets throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Our intentionally regional reach and perspective provide advantages to our clients that operate in multiple locations within this region.

Our team is recognized as a regional leader in obtaining zoning, subdivision and site plan approvals and related regulatory relief for our commercial, industrial, institutional and residential developer and end-user clients. When necessary, we have aggressively handled subsequent litigation.

We are highly regarded as transaction counsel for our clients in all aspects of real estate sales, financing and leasing matters, as well as in condominium projects, securitizations, sale-leaseback transactions, 1031 tax-free exchanges, limited partnership syndications, REIT financing, tax credit syndications and other specialized transactions.

We maintain an active multi-state incentives practice. Our work in this area has resulted in tax savings and PILOT programs for a number of for-profit and not-for-profit clients.

Stevens & Lee also has an affiliated title agency, Reliance Search and Settlement, which provides commercial, industrial and residential title search and title insurance services to a wide variety of businesses, individuals and government agencies in Pennsylvania.
