COMMERCIAL ACQUISITION AND SALE

Thompson Coburn's real estate attorneys represent developers, investors, corporate users and institutional owners on all issues relating to the acquisition and disposition of commercial, industrial, retail, office and multifamily properties. Our practice is both national and international in scope, and we can represent clients in all stages of either acquiring or selling real estate properties.

Our real estate attorneys have represented clients in a wide variety of transactions, including the sale of shopping centers (with a local and national retail tenant mix) and environmentally challenged industrial sites. We have represented investors in various tax-deferred exchange transactions and other clients in the purchase and sale of apartment buildings. Additionally, we have developed niche practices in representing data center owners and representing clients acquiring continuum of care campuses, i.e., independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities.

Acquisition and redevelopment of three former General Motors manufacturing facilities.

We represented Scottrade, Inc., in its $60 million acquisition of four properties.

We are active in ongoing multifamily portfolio acquisitions and sales with a variety of financing arrangements.

Our attorneys have managed multiple power center and neighborhood strip retail center matters.

The practice has closed on $1 billion of sale/leaseback transactions.

We acted as counsel to a national residential and retail developer for the development of a senior living facility within a large-scale planned development on Chicago's South Side. Our attorneys handled the due diligence and conveyance of the phased development parcel to the senior living facility developer and handled all aspects of the sale and the implementation of utility and access easements for the phased development.

We represented a commercial landscape and home design company in the sale of a commercial parcel for residential development. Our representation has included comprehensive negotiations related to subdivision, planned unit development approvals, seller financing and ancillary zoning and utility matters, as well as the negotiation of a phased residential development and disposition schedule.
