Texas Commercial Real Estate Litigation
Commercial real estate litigation presents a unique set of challenges and requires a multi-disciplinary approach. At Andrews Myers, we have the deep knowledge and expertise that are required to handle each client’s legal needs. Most commercial real estate litigation requires pre-litigation evaluation and strategy to put our clients in the best possible situation, whether protecting interests as a plaintiff or defendant in court. This extensive evaluation allows us to find the most efficient and effective way to preserve our clients’ property interests. Our commercial real estate attorneys’ extensive track record includes representation of clients in these areas:
- Landlord/tenant disputes involving rent, subleases, assignment, termination, additional rent and charges under the lease, tenant improvements, holdovers, renewals, maintenance, use of the premises, and other lease defaults.
