Practice Areas

Irwin Law Firm represents a number of clients in the acquisition and disposition of single and multi-tenant office buildings, apartment complexes, shopping centers and raw land. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer creative solutions to complex issues in order to help our clients close the transaction.

Our firm provides considerable expertise in the areas of contract negotiation, loan document review and equity structuring through preparation and negotiation of partnership documents. Our experienced attorneys strive to match the urgency of every client because we all know  “time kills deals.”

Real Estate Financings

The attorneys at Irwin Law Firm represent borrowers in the context of acquisition financing and refinancing transactions involving commercial real estate assets such as single and multi-tenant office buildings, apartment complexes and shopping centers. Our experience includes negotiating loan documentation in the context of conduit financing, single-lender mortgage loans, securitized mortgage loans, CMBS loans and credit-tenant financing. Additionally, our firm serves as local counsel for a number of out-of-state clients and counsel who need the expertise of a Texas lawyer. We have also established long-term relationships with lenders’ attorneys all over the country which helps facilitate a smooth and timely closing process.

Commercial Lease Agreements

Irwin Law Firm has been privileged to represent clients in connection with the preparation and negotiation of commercial lease agreements involving single-tenant and multi-tenant office buildings, industrial buildings and shopping centers. Because our firm represents both landlords and tenants, we are uniquely qualified to efficiently identify the “common ground” needed to get the lease closed while protecting the interest of our client. Many of our landlord clients have established standard leasing practices with our involvement in order to streamline their leasing procedures. Our tenant clients value our ability to help them efficiently negotiate the landlord-friendly/tenant-unfriendly lease and get them what they really need to operate their business.

Joint Venture Agreements

Many of our clients require our assistance in selecting the appropriate entity for their new business venture or real estate acquisition. We have experience in forming new entities and drafting operating agreements and related documentation, as well as negotiating sophisticated partnership agreements with our clients’ institutional investors. We understand the importance of properly documenting the business deal and clearly stating management authority and profit and loss allocation, among many other issues which are critical to the success of any joint venture.

Transfer of Beneficial Interests in Real Estate Holding Companies

The firm represents buyers and sellers of commercial real estate who desire to structure their transaction as an entity sale as opposed to an asset disposition.

Property Management Agreements

Irwin Law Firm provides broad representation to property owners, asset managers and property management companies in the context of managing and operating commercial real estate. Our firm has extensive experience in drafting and negotiating property management agreements, asset management contracts, lease agreements, lease modifications, work letters and other agreements with tenants. Our firm also offers advice and counsel in the area of landlord/tenant dispute resolution.

New Business Formations and Organizations

New business owners often require our advice and counsel in structuring their new business and forming the appropriate entity. We have assisted numerous clients by drafting the company operating agreement, negotiating of buys-sell agreements and providing advice and counsel on other issues facing new business owners.

Estate Planning

The attorneys at Irwin Law Firm treat clients like family. Accordingly, many of our clients seek our advice and expertise in planning their estates. Whether it’s drafting a will, creating a living trust or preparing powers of attorney, our attorneys can help.

Probate and Estate Administration

The handling of a loved one’s estate can be a challenging and stressful undertaking. The probate attorneys at Irwin Law Firm have helped our clients with probating the will and managing the estate administration process. If there is no will to probate, our attorneys can assist in handling an intestate administration and alternative to the administration process. Our attorneys are compassionate, caring and experienced.
