Chicago Real Estate Development Lawyer

O’Leary Law Firm represents individual and corporate clients in every legal aspect of real estate development. We guide our clients around the roadblocks and risks so their businesses can be profitable.

Real estate development projects are subject to diverse vulnerabilities, from initial acquisition through regulatory compliance with Chicago and neighboring municipalities, Illinois laws and regulations, or even federal regulations.

Real World Experience in Real Estate Development

Real estate developers look at dirt, steel and concrete and see possibilities. They envision office buildings, shopping centers, sport complexes, industrial properties, highrises, street retail, residential communities, and many other types of structures and growth.

Chicago attorney John O’Leary understands this way of thinking, and offers the perceptive legal counsel and guidance developers need to achieve their vision. John has keen appreciation for the significant investment and potential profit that underlie developing a parcel of land, working through zoning issues, collaborating with surveyors or engineers, and the many other moving parts of a complex real estate development project.
