At Harrison & Johnston, we lay the necessary groundwork for successful, efficient, and trouble-free commercial real estate closings by conducting comprehensive due diligence and preparing meticulous documentation designed to protect our clients’ interests and maximize the value of their investments.
The acquisition or disposition of commercial real estate is significantly more complicated than transactions involving residential properties. The considerations and interests of multiple parties intersect with a host of business, financial, and documentation considerations that must be addressed before a transaction can be successfully completed.
At Harrison & Johnston, we work closely with our clients to ensure that the consummation of a purchase or sale meets the expectations of the parties and proceeds without avoidable complications.
