Real Estate


Since its inception in 1986, Albert, Neely & Kuhlmann has represented clients in all aspects of the commercial and residential real estate business. From transactional planning and preparation of letters of intent, through negotiation and drafting of purchase and sale agreements, pre-closing management of the transaction, dispute resolution if it arises, and the conduct of due diligence, to bringing the transaction across the finish line at closing, we have provided our real estate expertise to clients both as a separate practice area and as support for our core oil and gas practice.

The importance of careful and thorough document preparation, gleaned from our many years of litigation and transaction experience, informs and guides our handling of projects that span the gamut of the business, including commercial and residential subdivision development, municipal and county level zoning and planning, entity formation, real and personal property acquisition and disposition, construction, commercial leasing, and securitized loan initiation and assumption, to name but a few. We believe attention to detail on the front end ultimately avoids confrontation by foreseeing and safely navigating around the potential pitfalls that can occur in a land transaction.

Through our years of practice, we have developed relationships with experts in fields outside our core areas from whom we draw support when the need arises, whether those issues involve environmental, tax, bankruptcy, commercial lending, litigation, title, or other questions. In short, Albert, Neely & Kuhlmann has the experience to understand, and professionally handle, all areas of commercial and residential real estate law – and the integrity to do so in the highest ethical manner.
