Gain valuable insights on what you need to know when representing your client, and protecting yourself and your firm in real estate finance transactions.
Large commercial real estate finance transactions of any sizable amount usually require legal opinions that provide professional judgment on a variety of legal issues. Although opinions are only professional judgements and not guarantees, they can often be a condition to closing a deal. Opinions also come with limitations and risks such as practical realization and negligent misrepresentation. Therefore, requesting an opinion or writing one yourself, requires the need to know what is customary and what you can do to represent your client, while protecting yourself and your firm. This program will provide valuable insight for attorneys representing clients or rendering third party legal opinions in real estate finance transactions.
Join expert real estate attorneys as they discuss:
