Jostock & Jostock, P.C. regularly advises owners, corporate management, officers, shareholders, board of directors and board committees on a wide variety of corporate governance matters including corporate responsibility, fiduciary duties, board oversight responsibilities, financial disclosure and other legal compliance issues. Our advice relates to the procedural aspects as well as the legal consequences of corporate transactions and other corporate actions including stock option issues, subsidiaries and general corporate law matters.

We represent developers, operators, corporations and other investors in the purchase and sale of office buildings, multifamily residential properties, industrial sites, warehouses, manufacturing facilities and other commercial properties in addition to purchases and sales of equity interests and other investments in joint ventures, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other entities. These transactions may be structured traditionally as purchase and sale transactions or as more complex arrangements, which include acquisitions of single-asset limited liability companies, special purpose entities, limited partnerships or corporations and even the acquisition of a real estate company with multiple real estate assets.

We provide a full range of legal services relating to the development and redevelopment of commercial, industrial and residential land from strategic planning, site acquisition and assemblage to due diligence, project coordination, permitting, project financing, construction through preparation of all transactional documents and documents of record, project disposition and even in the entitlement processes (real estate tax incentives and tax increment financing). Our firm has many years of experience with projects involving issues such as annexation of land into a municipality, development agreements, planned unit developments, master planned-communities, condominium documentation, rezones, variances, special use permits, subdivision approvals, easements and licenses.

Jostock & Jostock, P.C. understands that our clients vary from each transaction and the agreements must be effectively tailored to achieve the client’s objectives.  In structuring, negotiating and documenting real estate transactions, we find innovative means to meet our clients’ desired objectives for each transaction. We help protect owners and developers of retail, office and residential properties by managing their contractual relationships with lenders, engineers, architects, contractors, suppliers and builders through each stage of the construction cycle.

We also work closely with clients to effectively structure investment vehicles for the acquisition, financing and operation of real estate projects.  The creative structuring of real estate partnerships, limited liability companies, special purpose entities, joint ventures and other real estate investment vehicles enables our clients to achieve the results they desire. We structure and implement all types of like-kind exchanges of real estate assets (1031 exchanges and 1031 reverse exchanges), enabling our clients to defer gains that otherwise would be incurred in connection with the sale of real property.

Our firm provides a full range of sophisticated real estate services to our clients and is able to meet clients’ needs and expectations, no matter how complex.
