Residential Real Estate
GM attorneys help buyers and sellers successfully complete home and condominium transactions, and represent banks and mortgage companies in title matters. We review purchase and sales agreements and closing documents, provide advice on contracts and inspection issues, conduct the closing, make sure all proceeds are properly paid out and accounted for, establish clear title to the property, and even recommend financing options. Our online services speed the closing process, eliminate costly mistakes, and simplify life for buyers, sellers, agents and lenders.
Commercial Real Estate
We bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table during each and every commercial real estate transaction. In a recent readers' poll conducted by the Banker & Tradesman, GM was voted top commercial closing law firm. GM attorneys represent clients engaged in the purchase, sale, and lease of commercial properties ranging from office buildings and shopping malls to public buildings and health clubs. GM is a members of the American Land Title Association and the Real Estate Bar Association of Massachusetts.
Since its inception, GM has helped small and medium-sized businesses protect their assets and comply with tax and government regulations. Our attorneys can provide advice on corporate law matters, enforce your rights as a creditor to get you paid, help you choose the right business entity for incorporation, protect your trademarks and service marks, and more.
Drawing on an in-depth knowledge of real estate financing, GM lawyers often take on the challenge of restructuring troubled real estate projects. In some cases, our loan workout and bankruptcy experts represent financial institutions looking to protect their loans and other interests. In other cases, we are appointed by the court as a trustee to supervise failing enterprises. Because we have experience on both sides of these difficult transactions, we are able to successfully negotiate agreements that meet the business objectives of our clients and bring the matter to a mutually acceptable resolution.
GM represents lenders, borrowers and investors in a wide range of financing transactions secured by real estate and other assets. These include loans for property acquisition, development and construction, loan workouts, refinancing, sales of loan portfolios, conduit financing, and debt and equity structuring projects. We also handle municipal finance transactions including tax-exempt and tax increment bond transactions for major public and private projects.
