Contract Dispute Representative


Contracts involving the development, purchase and sale of residential and commercial property are more complex than ever. As a result, there is an increased chance that a party will fail to understand terms of a contract, or the parties involved may disagree about how to interpret a portion of a contract. Real estate contract disputes require a detailed approach in defending or challenging the language, contents or potential breaches of the contract. At Berlin Patten Ebling, our lawyers advise and represent construction companies, homeowners, real estate agents, commercial developers, landlords, tenants and others involved in contract disputes.

Being proactive about real estate deals frequently saves time and money. Retaining our firm to help you navigate the contract negotiation process will help prevent disputes from arising at a later stage.

We represent clients in a broad scope of real estate contract disputes, including:

  • Lease agreements
  • Purchase agreements
  • Closing agreements
