If you are a real estate investment sponsor, forming a “special purpose” business entity is critical and will very likely be required by your lender. The business entity will shield you from personal liability as you engage in real estate transactions. Battleson Law can help you form a real estate LLC, a real estate partnership, or a real estate corporation. As a skilled commercial real estate law firm, we understand the strengths and weaknesses of the various real estate entity options.
The complexities of partnership or structured investment documents are often not clear to the participants until long after closing… when capital calls or profit distributions are at issue. Whether you are working with a business partner or outside investors, it is important that you hire the right attorney to oversee the process and help you create a legal partnership or other structure that is clear and enforceable. When all parties are clear about their rights and responsibilities, things tend to go much more smoothly. At Battleson Law, we have extensive experience in both business and real estate law, as well as a decade of experience on the investor side “living with” documents prepared by other lawyers. Mark Battleson’s insight and experience with financial modeling / business terms, means that his clients essentially have an additional set of acquisitions/analyst eyes on their deals.
Deal sponsors and investors should contact Battleson Law as early as possible in the investment structuring process, as we may be aware of options you have not considered. Reach out for your complimentary consultation to get started. We serve Metro Atlanta and all of Georgia.
