Our Real Estate Practice

Baty Otto Scheer’s real estate attorneys practice in the areas of residential and commercial real estate, in and out of the courtroom.

We represent individuals and businesses—as buyers or sellers, developers, and landlords or tenants. Our real estate attorneys draft purchase and sales agreements; review loan documents; coordinate inspections, deadlines, and closings; review title reports; and assist with financing. In the rental and leasing sector, we have prepared lease agreements for shopping centers, offices, mixed-use projects, and subterranean facilities. In the commercial real estate sector, we have represented developers and lenders in commercial loan transactions to finance real estate and equipment, including leveraged buyouts, refinancing, sale and leaseback arrangements, and credit enhancement. With extensive experience in business transaction law as well as zoning, land use, and environmental law, we can assist our clients through all phases of development of a commercial property—from initial acquisition, through financing, development, lease, or sale.

In the event of a real estate-related dispute, we are experienced litigators in state and federal courts. We have, for example, obtained a directed verdict on behalf of a business involved in a commercial lease dispute in litigation in Greene County, Missouri. Our trial record also includes a defense verdict for a partner in a joint venture property case.
