A robust Real Estate Practice has been one of Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren’s core strengths from our very beginnings as a firm. Today, our practice has grown to be the largest in Wisconsin and among the most influential and well-respected in the region. With deep expertise across the entire spectrum of real estate law, our attorneys have had more of an impact on the major developments throughout the state of Wisconsin and have done more to shape the skylines of its metropolitan areas than any other firm. We are proud of our attorneys’ long-standing, well-established connections that allow us to navigate the political and municipal landscape to achieve notable outcomes for our clients.
We are skilled in the art of the deal, and understand how real estate developments, acquisitions, sales, foreclosures, partnerships and financing all fit into a business’ or individual’s overall goals. We understand how to keep development moving, and we can foresee and avoid obstacles that would otherwise delay or derail a project. By focusing on our client’s overall goals and drawing on our depth of experience, we are able to help our clients make informed, sound business decisions about their real estate interests.
