Real Estate

Employers in the real estate industry span a wide range of work environments, often requiring an interdisciplinary approach to addressing their labor and employment law needs. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the industry to
re-think operations and management in order to ensure the highest degree of safety and regulatory compliance possible.

Real Estate

Overview

With offices across the U.S., we are familiar with the local communities in which real estate employers operate as well as the local laws they must follow, which can be as varied and numerous as our clients’ properties and holdings. We are fully engaged with our clients, working together to address the struggles ushered in by the pandemic and assisting them in all phases of the industry’s recovery. Drawing on our national practice model, as well as our experience representing landlords, property managers, REITs, investment firms, investment managers and brokerage firms, we bring a multi-disciplinary approach to the entire array of workplace law matters facing real estate employers.
