  • Brokerage startup and licensing We attend to the unique issues involved in forming a real estate brokerage, and handle all the details from setting up your business structure to licensing the broker to helping your salespeople properly complete their licensing applications.
  • Brokerage mergers and acquisitions — Our real estate attorneys are well-versed in the combination of business and regulatory issues that are unique to merging real estate brokerages. From developing the appropriate corporate structure to assisting with licensing requirements, our experienced attorneys can guide you through the process.
  • Brokerage compliance issues Our business law attorneys will meet with brokers and help prepare office policies and procedures to help brokers comply with the complex and changing federal, state and local regulations.
  • Professional license defense We fight to protect the licenses of brokers and sales agents, and represent certified appraisers in state disciplinary proceedings.
