Scott Speier has extensive experience in a wide range of real estate matters (both litigation and non-litigation) involving commercial and residential real property. The firm represents real-estate owners, developers, general contractors, architects, sub-contractors, construction managers, engineers, sellers and buyers in public and private projects of any size and type. We work closely with clients to achieve their objectives through cost-sensitive legal solutions, whether by settlement, alternative dispute resolution, or trial. Our areas of practice include:

  • Business and real estate litigation
  • Contract litigation
  • Premises liability and tort litigation
  • Broker disputes
  • Breach of purchase or sale agreements
  • Construction law and construction law litigation
  • Contract and lease disputes
  • Breach of warranty
  • Real estate disputes
  • Commission disputes

Scott Speier has successfully resolved a variety of real estate conflicts, including disputes involving purchase and sale contracts, construction lien rights, engineering and construction defects, brokerage commission disputes, and ownership disputes.

Since real estate and construction disputes can oftentimes mean the difference between a profit and/or loss on a particular project, we strive to provide high-quality cost-effective service for our clients. To this end, we seek to resolve our clients' disputes not only by litigation, but through pre-litigation negotiation and by the use of alternative dispute resolution processes, such as nonbinding facilitation, mediation and binding arbitration.

We pride ourselves on providing strategic and creative advice to our clients and having the tactical skills to achieve our clients' objectives. We understand the fundamental business concerns intrinsic in our clients' litigation and we work with our clients, addressing business concerns, weighing cost, risks, and benefits of litigation. We also understand that litigation is at times unavoidable and is an alternative method of "negotiation." Yet, through it all, we understand and appreciate the need for cost management and seek to conclude such matters as efficiently as possible.

Our drive for excellence means that our clients' rights are protected through all phases of a legal matter; and in all aspects of our real estate litigation practice, we place a high priority on determined advocacy, clear communications, and good business practices. We prepare each and every case as if it were going to court, despite the fact that the great majority of our clients’ real estate litigation cases are settled outside of court. Our clients’ opponents know that we are prepared to take a dispute as far as it needs to go – through negotiations, arbitration, or courtroom litigation – to get a fair resolution for businesses that we represent.

Our clients are always kept in the loop as we work through their cases. Unpleasant surprises are avoided through our policy of open communication and accessibility. We let our clients know what we are doing at all times. As is appropriate, we advise them on how we are containing their costs without sacrificing the quality of our personalized representation. Our clients appreciate the attention we give to avoiding unnecessary litigation expenses.
