The teammate you want.  

Commercial Real Estate requires a team approach due to the various disciplines required to successfully complete a project. The goal at Adams | Howell is for the client to succeed on every project no matter our role on the team.  Often the client needs more than just legal advice from its counsel in order to achieve the desired outcome. We have helped long-standing clients score victory after victory by understanding the objectives of the project, then going the extra mile to achieve those objectives.   Whether it is identifying unforeseen issues, bridging gaps in communication between consultants or facilitating project deliverables, we do the little things outside of the norm of legal counsel that make us a leader in our field.  Identifying these tasks and issues while providing a resolution is how we consistently participate on winning teams. We are the teammate that you want working on your project.

Our core clients are developers of retail, office, industrial and multi-housing projects looking to utilize high-level and diverse knowledge, organizational depth and national geographic reach; title companies and law firms needing first-class title examinations and title issue analysis; and institutional lenders seeking counsel to draft and negotiate Loan Agreements, Promissory Notes, Deeds of Trusts, Mortgages and other ancillary loan documents.

Our experience includes:

  • Assisting in closing transactions in 30 States
  • In-house title search and certifications for more than 70 of North Carolina‚Äôs 100 Counties
  • Long-standing engagements by multiple Fortune 500 companies
  • FDIC Approved legal counsel

Our Commercial Real Estate Practice has a unique approach by utilizing our independent title department that focuses exclusively on the title aspects of a real estate transaction. Our title department not only represents its own clients with title related needs but also handles the title facet on real estate projects where our team is providing a full scope of representation for our client.  We have established this structure because we believe that title is the foundation of every real estate transaction and that concentration on the nuances of title analysis is required to develop the necessary expertise to be best in class in this area.
