Real Estate

Cummins & White’s real estate practice group is committed to providing the analysis, recommendations, and services corporate and individual clients need to solve problems and realize their real estate goals.  The group represents clients in all aspects of real estate development, transactions, and litigation, and includes lawyers with extensive skills and experience in a wide range of real estate and development matters.  This experience allows our attorneys to quickly respond to the changing dynamics of the real estate market—especially important with the expected resurgence of real estate in Southern California in 2013 and beyond. 

Our real estate practice group can work with individuals and businesses on the most detailed and complex matters.  By integrating the practices and experiences of our most talented and accomplished real estate attorneys, we are better able to serve clients by matching attorneys’ skills and experience with our clients’ specific needs and goals. 


We represent all parties involved in real estate transactions from buyers, sellers, and lenders to developers, architects, and engineers.  We have significant hands-on experience in numerous aspects of real estate, including:

  • Acquisitions and dispositions
  • Development and construction
  • Financing, investments, and taxation
  • Leasing and property management
  • Real estate litigation
  • Land Use-Zoning/California Environmental Quality Act

Our team also works in specialized areas, including public/private projects and municipal issues, redevelopment successor agencies, condominiums and cooperatives, and healthcare real estate.  We also administer a thriving real estate agent/broker legal support program that provides agents with quick, convenient access to premium legal services, privileges, and support.
