Our Real Estate Services

Real Estate Transactions

We represent all parties to both residential and commercial real estate transactions. Whether you are buying your first home or evaluating a commercial real estate lease or investment, we can guide you through the process and help you understand what you are signing up for when you sign on the dotted line. Wisconsin’s real estate laws are complex, and the documentation involved in real estate transactions can be even more complicated. We can help make sure that you are not taking on any unwarranted risks, or unnecessarily giving up any legal rights.

We advise clients with respect to all types of residential and commercial properties in North Central Wisconsin, including:

  • Single-family homes and townhomes
  • Condominiums
  • Vacant land
  • Farms
  • Commercial properties

In addition to purchase and sale contracts, we also regularly represent clients in the preparation, negotiation, and review of deeds, land contracts, easements, residential and commercial leases, and other real estate-related agreements.

Real Estate Disputes and Litigation

Our attorneys also handle a wide range of real estate-related disputes. We handle cases involving disagreements between buyers and sellers, neighboring property owners, and other parties with an interest in real property. Our experience includes representing clients in matters such as:

  • Adverse Possession Claims – We represent both title-owners of property and third-party claimants in matters involving claims of adverse possession.
  • Boundary Disputes – Neighboring property owners may run into issues with regard to the boundaries of their respective properties. We represent owners in protecting their property rights.
  • Disputes Arising in Connection with a Purchase or Sale – From ambiguous contract language to allegations of misrepresentations and fraud, real estate transactions can lead to a number of different types of disputes.
  • Land Contract and Mortgage Foreclosures – If you are facing foreclosure on your mortgage or land contract, there may be ways that we can help you protect your credit and your investment.
  • Real Estate Condemnations – If you received a condemnation notice or a government agency has entered your property without your consent, we can help you protect your property rights. We have experience in matters involving condemnations and the exercise of eminent domain.
