Real Estate

Making efficient use of real properties has remained indispensable in corporate activities even today. However, the environment surrounding the real estate market has been changing drastically. Especially in recent years, the issues involving real estate transactions have become extremely diversified, so it is necessary to select the optimal scheme and contract terms upon ascertaining the distinct character of each case.

In addition, it is not rare in recent years that real estate transactions develop into disputes. In order to have a favorable resolution of the dispute, it is necessary to work out strategies considering resolution by legal proceedings, from the early stage to the final stage of the dispute.
