Experienced Attorney Handles Commercial Real Estate Transactions
Where you conduct business can be just as important as the business you conduct. I understand that no small amount of time or attention goes into choosing an office space that fits the needs of your current operations and leaves room for growth. Once you identify the property that fulfills your requirements, I will work diligently to help you complete your commercial real estate transaction securely and confidently. I represent business owners in the New Jersey area in a range of property matters, whether the real estate involves office space, warehouses, retail businesses or other commercial properties.

As an experienced commercial real estate attorney, I am comprehensive in my approach to each and every property matter your business is involved in.

I can advise you on the potential pros and cons of different lease terms, financing options and payment structures. I also explain the relevant New Jersey and local laws and ordinances that affect your purchase or lease.
Dedicated litigator handles real estate disputes
More than just a place to conduct business, your office space is an essential part of your business value. Disputes over property can profoundly affect your company by interrupting your operations and threatening the security of your location. I draw upon my extensive knowledge of commercial real estate and the local landscape to protect your business property investments in contentious situations such as eminent domain seizures, evictions, landlord-tenant disagreements, easement conflicts and zoning decisions. Commercial real estate contracts often include a clause requiring that disputes enter arbitration. Absent an arbitration clause, mediation can be used effectively to preserve business relationships. When mediation is required by contract or otherwise advantageous to your business, Lawrence B. Diener guides negotiations toward equitable solutions that serve your needs and protect your property investment.
