LPE's Real Estate Professionals:
The Law Practice Exchange has trusted relationships with expert and licensed real estate professionals in the various jurisdictions and geographic markets we serve clients. This relationship benefits our clients in several ways.
When a selling attorney or attorneys of a practice also own the real estate used by the practice they commonly desire to sell both in a confidential manner to the buyer of a practice. While LPE can take all necessary steps regarding the practice portion of the transaction, valuing and transacting the commercial real property is something we leave to the real estate professionals.
Together, LPE and our trusted real estate professionals can provide a seamless and value driven confidential sales approach to allow the right exit value to our clients of both asset types.
