We do real estate.
And we do it best.

What We Offer

With a singular focus on one area of practice, Underhill & Hodge is a different kind of law firm. We recognize that each of our clients has particular needs and that no two deals are alike. Our attorneys have seen it all, so they’re equipped to handle even the most complex or unique project needs. Our client’s economic goals, timing, and asset realities drive our strategy so that each negotiation and case are set up for success.

Our team represents clients throughout the real estate project life cycle including purchasing property, obtaining necessary land use rights, financial incentives for development, and providing counsel when securing financing for construction or operations, all the way through leasing and sales. Our firm can assist clients in both the private and public aspects of acquiring, developing, leasing, and selling property.

Our areas of expertise include but are not limited to:

  • Real estate entitlements, such as annexations, zonings, conditional uses, variances, administrative appeals, and platting
  • Commercial real estate sales and purchases
  • Commercial leasing (landlord or tenant representation)
  • Property sales with leasebacks
  • Evaluation and implementation of development
  • Easements
  • Deed restrictions and covenants
