Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek’s real estate lawyers represent parties in the full range of real estate transactions – from acquisition to design and development; from financing to construction and lease-up; and from sale and leaseback arrangements to like-kind exchanges. We apply our knowledge in these areas to the specialized real estate needs and concerns of health care clients, whether physician groups negotiating a joint venture development with a hospital network or individual physicians entering into a medical office lease for a start-up practice.
Why Choose Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek?
1. Reaching Desired Outcomes
Real estate is tangible and fixed. But the ways in which it can be developed and utilized are almost endless. Add to the mix interaction with local governmental entities, design and construction professionals, financing sources, increasingly complex state and local tax rules regulations,and the real estate puzzle becomes more complex. Our real estate team assembles the multiple pieces of the real estate puzzle for clients from all industry sectors. 2. Coordinating Specialized Services
We recognize the specialized needs and concerns of medical professionals and health care organizations. We work hard to understand those needs and concerns when applied to address the real estate-related issues facing our health care clients. For example, our real estate team coordinates with Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek’s State and Local Taxation
practice group and Public Finance
practice group to address the specialized taxation and financing issues affecting health care real estate. 3. Responding to Client Concerns
The physician-patient relationship is not circumscribed within an established set of hours in a day, or days in a week. Consistent, open and timely communication is central to the physician-patient relationship. The same is true of the attorney-client relationship. When our health care clients need us, we respond promptly and with the same sense of urgency those clients place on the legal issues confronting them. This is equally important when our health care clients address real estate issues.
