Professional Liability

Real Estate Professionals

Plaintiff’s attorneys see the complex, high-intensity real estate market as a fertile arena for litigation involving the services of real estate agents, brokers, appraisers, title companies, and fee attorneys. Our lawyers defend these real estate professionals in controversies that involve allegations of misrepresentation, failure to disclose property or financing defects, and failure to uncover title problems. Most of the properties at issue are valued anywhere from the hundreds of thousands to many millions of dollars.

Our lawyers defend clients in proceedings before the Texas Real Estate Commission and the California Bureau of Real Estate, in the trial and appellate courts, and in mediation and arbitration actions. In addition to more traditional real estate controversies, our lawyers are effectively dealing with the wave of litigation that real estate professionals face over the ongoing distress in the subprime real estate market, particularly claims involving foreclosure and inadequate risk disclosure.
