Property Law (Real and Personal Property)

Real estate and personal property transactions present risk for buyers and sellers. Mitigating these risks and apportioning liability appropriately requires the knowledge and skill derived from successfully closing numerous transactions across a broad range of factual scenarios.

Our attorneys represent clients in transactions involving residential and commercial real estate, farm and ranch properties, mineral and land use rights, and all other types of property. We call upon decades of experience in these transactions to help property owners, purchasers, developers, operators and other clients make informed decisions and get to the closing table with confidence. With a thorough understanding of the business and legal issues involved, we are able to work collaboratively with our clients to structure their transactions in ways that reflect their unique circumstances while anticipating and proactively addressing issues that have the potential to lead to future exposure.

We routinely represent clients in Shelby and throughout Montana with respect to:

  • Real Estate Transactions
    • We represent buyers, sellers, lessors, lessees, financial institutions and other clients in all types of real estate transactions involving residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural properties. As seller’s counsel, we ensure that our clients are not unduly exposed to liability as a result of their transactions and that their right to payment is not conditioned on factors beyond their control. As buyer’s counsel, we assist with due diligence, financing, contract negotiations and all other matters leading up to closing. For other clients, we tailor our representation to the particular risks, dollar value, property conditions and other factors at hand.
