Harrison & Johnston defends and advances the interests of property owners, developers, sellers, purchasers, and others in real estate disputes of all manner and complexity. We always endeavor to effect efficient resolutions and favorable outcomes, whether in negotiations, litigation, or alternative forums.
The purchase, sale, and development of real property often involves the opportunity to realize significant gain. But no real estate investment or transaction is without risk, including disputes that can scuttle a lucrative deal or stop a project in its tracks. Buyers and sellers may be at odds over a failed transaction, conflicts may arise with neighboring property owners or local governments over the use and development of the property, and encumbrances may negatively impact a property’s value and transferability, leading to costly title litigation.
At Harrison & Johnston, our real estate litigation attorneys in the Shenandoah Valley and Northern Virginia recognize how much is at stake for our clients when they face real estate or land use disputes. Resolving these matters quickly and efficiently, minimizing disruptions or clearing roadblocks, requires lawyers who understand the law and know how to navigate the complexities inherent in real estate litigation.
We bring to bear the talents of lawyers with extensive experience in a wide range of intersecting practice areas to complement our real estate litigators' advocacy skills. We leverage our firm’s robust capabilities in real estate transactions, business law, real estate finance, and land use and zoning, among other legal disciplines.
