Real Estate has been a core practice and focus for Mintz since the firm’s inception. We pride ourselves on helping our clients efficiently navigate those risks and mine those opportunities.

Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz has represented private real estate investment fund Colony Capital, Inc. for over a decade in the acquisition, disposition, financing, and leasing of commercial real estate throughout the United States. Mintz has negotiated more than 2,000 leases and created several master lease forms.
Case Study
After helping GE negotiate an agreement with MassDevelopment to sell 2.7 acres on Boston’s Fort Point Channel, Mintz represented GE in the sale and a leaseback of two historic brick buildings on the site from the new owner — all within six months of the initial discussions.
Case Study
A Mintz team’s trial win for a real estate client defeated a neighboring property owner’s attempt to shut down the client's shopping center. Mintz attorneys defeated the plaintiff’s claim in just four hours of trial and secured a $4 million reciprocal parking agreement for the client.
