« Back to All Practice Areas

Our Real Estate & Environmental Services Group works with transactional, insurance carrier, and litigation clients to navigate the complex legal landscape of title litigation, coverage analysis, refinance, loan due diligence, purchase, and development for client’s insurance and real estate needs. DSV attorneys realize that a client’s relationship with their home, development, and/or real estate investment does not end at closing. We help commercial and residential property owners, lenders, insurance carriers, and title companies with their strategic initiatives from defending against legal attacks, title ownership challenges, and lien disputes, to plans for achieving the desired result, to establishing a policy for title insurance needs and defending title coverage and disagreements as to lien, development and ownership interests. DSV attorneys have experience in governmental services, loan origination and due diligence, commercial development, white collar crime analysis to triage transactions and represent clients in their business and title insurance efforts through foreclosures, quiet title actions, defalcation/real estate fraud, declaratory judgment actions, coverage opinions and disputes, eminent domain, lien enforcement and priority, ownership retention, and asset recovery.
