How can you help your clients convert an idea or vision into a successful real estate development? What risks should your clients be prepared for, and how do you manage those risks? What do you need to know to give legal advice to a land owner, real estate professional, entrepreneur or developer client who wishes to build and own a retail center, apartment complex, office building or some other real estate project? This book explores not only the “how” but the “who,” “what,” “where” and “why” for developing commercial real estate.
