Real Estate Remedies & Litigation

ISY’s team includes litigators skilled in dispute resolution, namely mediation, arbitration and traditional litigation. This specialty is helpful in both resolving and preventing disputes between real estate parties and is a powerful tool to the transactional real estate lawyer. Our litigation team seeks to understand our clients’ objectives and to create a strategy to fulfill those goals, both legally and with respect to our clients’ business needs. To accomplish this, we strive to present our clients with an honest and practical assessment of their legal position from the outset and keep them fully informed as the litigation process progresses. ISY’s litigators work together with our transactional attorneys and draw upon their collective experience and substantive expertise to best serve our clients by providing assertive, result-oriented approaches in order to maximize results in a timely, cost-efficient manner. Our litigators are focused on obtaining a favorable result for a client’s dispute without “over-lawyering” the dispute to obtain such a result. We regularly engage in various forms of alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”), including mediation, arbitration and judicial reference, and where appropriate, we actively promote ADR procedures in an effort to minimize client time and expense. ISY litigation attorneys perform high-quality legal work, while providing superior service, without losing sight of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our experience includes lender liability issues, workouts, foreclosures, receiverships, unlawful detainers, construction defects, mechanic liens, environmental, leasing and purchase and sale/contract litigation, as well as representation of both individual and corporate clients in a variety of business litigation matters, including contractual disputes, fraud, unfair business practices, business torts, and misappropriation of trade secrets.
