What is Real Estate Law? 

Real estate law involves questions that arise when someone owns, buys, sells or leases a piece of property. It includes issues such as mortgages, foreclosures, landlord-tenant relationships, zoning laws and more. These types of cases are generally handled between individuals rather than by government agencies and can involve complex legal proceedings including title searches, surveys and environmental assessments. 


What is Transactional Law? 

Transactional law is the branch of law that deals with the exchange of goods and services for money or another form of value. This includes contracts between parties for goods or services as well as business formation such as LLCs or corporations. It also covers intellectual property matters such as trademarks, copyrights and patents along with wills and estates planning. Transactional lawyers review all contracts involved in a transaction to ensure that all parties involved understand their rights under the contract before signing it into effect.
