Real Estate Law

Coppersmith Brockelman provides real estate clients with knowledgeable and practical advice throughout the entire lifecycle of a development project, and in dealing with land use legal issues.

As trusted counsel to well-known real estate clients involved in sophisticated transactions throughout the Phoenix area, our team has assisted with acquisition and development, financing, and leasing issues.  We also advise on land use issues, including zoning hearings, administrative hearings, and land-use litigation.  We were proud to represent a well-known nonprofit animal rescue and rehabilitation facility that needed a special use permit to allow tours and educational programs, including successfully representing them in zoning hearings and defending them successfully in a separate civil lawsuit filed by a single unhappy neighbor.

Our team has worked on a wide range of projects, including:

  • Assisting clients with the purchase, sale, and financing of real estate
  • Leasing arrangements and documentation, representing both landlords and tenants
  • Counseling clients on development, land use, and entitlement issues as well as property management, deed restrictions, property owner association, and brokerage issues
  • Advising on zoning, zoning adjustment, and other land use regulation, including referendum elections arising out of zoning cases and annexations as part of our election law practice
  • Serving as local counsel for financings and real estate-related transactions, including providing required local law opinions
