Gibney’s Real Estate Group represents private and institutional owners, developers, tenants and investors in acquisitions, investments, sales, leasing and mortgage loan transactions. Our attorneys bring hands-on experience in the real estate market, including the management of commercial properties and investments.

For domestic and offshore investors, we provide comprehensive legal and supervisory services for real estate across the U.S.  We understand the unique needs and concerns of offshore clients who may not be familiar with all aspects of investing in the U.S. Taking a practical approach, we guide them through the initial investment process and provide continued supervision.

From emerging business acquisitions to multi-office leases for national companies, our firm’s size allows us to scale up or down, based on our clients’ needs. With an understanding of their business strategy, we partner with clients to deliver an enhanced level of service.
