Digging the dirt on commercial real estate transactions and law in Chicago and beyond
The Powerhouse Building
Why Dirt Lawyer?
Attorneys specializing in real estate transactions are referred to commonly as "dirt lawyers." It is not a bad thing. The term "real estate lawyer" just sounds so boring. And really, we're not boring people! I swear! (Okay, not all of us are, at least.) Thus, I created the Dirt Lawyer's Blog, and whether you agree or disagree about the boring part, I welcome you. Enjoy!
To follow up on a previous post here regarding LEED and green buildings, here's some evidence (courtesy of Jordan Crouch) that building green buildings should pay off because of long-term cost savings and tenant demand. This is the wave of the future, folks, so catch it now or be late to the party.
I'm not giving out legal advice here about any specific matter. And I'm not creating an attorney-client relationship with you. I am alawyer, but I am not your lawyer, at least not without a written agreement that says so. If you want specific legal advice about a matter, call or write. Paying me helps too. And tax advice? Yeah, right. Do I look or write or act like a tax lawyer? No such thing here, IRS Circular 230 and all that.
