Empowering you to make the right decisions for your business


Our firm has wide-ranging experience in all aspects of the commercial real estate market and provides our clients with pragmatic advice concerning the purchase, sale or leasing of commercial, industrial and residential property. In an area that is extremely time sensitive, we pride ourselves in providing prompt, proactive and personal service in every commercial real estate transaction.

Over the years, we have represented both buyer and seller; landlord and tenant; and borrower and lender. Thus, we fully understand all sides of a transaction, and this experience leads to smoother transactions involving:

  • Vacant land purchases for commercial development
  • Financing
  • Developed Property purchases and sales
  • Commercial leases
  • Commercial landlord-tenant issues

Our real estate clients include owners/developers, businesses that wish to expand to a new location, commercial and residential property management companies, and mortgage lenders. We have special expertise in all landlord/tenant matters, including lease negotiations (both on behalf of landlords and tenants), and evictions. We have tremendous relationships with title companies, thus allowing quick turn-around times and smooth resolutions should any issues arise.

We also provide legal advice to businesses in the construction industry. Our attorneys have wide-ranging experience in the negotiation and preparation of construction contracts and in the perfection of construction liens. Together with our commercial litigation attorneys, our real estate attorneys prosecute bond claims, construction lien claims, and Michigan builders’ trust fund claims.

We work closely with individual developers, construction companies, out-of-state attorneys seeking local counsel to handle their clients’ real estate needs in Michigan, and in-state attorneys in need of a specialist with regard to a complex real estate matter. At Jacob & Weingartenwe provide our clients with sound legal advice that enables them to make sensible business decisions.
