Real Estate Law

GVM has a depth of experience in agricultural and other real estate matters. This includes acquisition, financing, leasing and sale transactions. GVM’s real estate lawyers are masters of the ‘real estate game’ and, for us, the question is not whether to make the deal work, it’s how to make it work quickly, efficiently and in a way that makes the most business sense. We work together with your accountants, real estate brokers, bankers, investment advisors, and other key partners to get the job done.

Our Real Estate attorneys are well-equipped to handle land use planning, permitting and disputes that are often complicated by politics and public controversy, mapping out the most direct approval route to avoid public scrutiny whenever possible.

Finally, we help our clients preserve and protect agricultural land for estate planning, tax or other purposes. GVM integrates the Estate Planning and Business teams to maintain real estate property tax values. We are experts at navigating through the process of applying for and negotiating Williamson Act contracts and conservation easements.
