Residential and commercial real estate transactions frequently involve substantial sums of money and complex sets of contractual documents.  While the majority of transactions are executed without major conflicts, problems can arise for countless reasons.  Disputes often are rooted in contractual language and ambiguities in the terms of the specific documents.  Other times, claims arise from the actions of another party, such as a seller who fails to disclose information, or a buyer/borrower who defaults, or a governmental body that refuses to approve a project, or an investor/lender/partner who thwarts a deal.
