At Jackson Walker, our real estate clients see us as more than just lawyers. We are their business counselors, transactional advisors, risk managers, and growth strategists, as well as their guides through the legal landscape between their aspirations and their accomplishments.
Our experience extends across all asset types, in both regional and national markets. We work with a variety of clients on both sides of the negotiating table and through business cycles, from growth to decline. Such exposure allows us to see all aspects of the transaction and the market to anticipate issues and determine the best course to meet our clients’ goals.
In today’s business climate, deals can be won or lost in a matter of days–even hours–making prompt response time critical. Streamlined processes contribute greatly to the cost-effective services we are able to provide our real estate clients. It is this combination of experience, promptness, and precise processes that makes Jackson Walker’s real estate attorneys a premier group.
We recognize that every transaction is unique, and we find creative responses to the issues our clients face. We manage complex and multi-disciplinary transactions involving numerous players and guide them to a timely and successful close. True to our partnering philosophy, what matters to us is the satisfaction of our clients…not the size of the deal.
Beyond the Basics

Our real estate practice extends from coast to coast. We’ve represented clients and conducted real estate, land use, and financial transactions in 46 states, plus Mexico, Canada, Jamaica, the Bahamas, and more.
