Frantz Ward LLP
Mark has developed a transactional practice devoted to counseling clients through all phases of the real estate development and construction process: from site acquisition, due diligence and approvals; through negotiation of financing, design, and construction documentation; negotiating the sale or leasing of a property; addressing operations and management concerns; and completing effective resolution of disputes throughout the process. He has developed significant expertise in the development of condominium, planned residential community, and urban mixed-use projects.
He routinely represents the interests of owners, landlord, tenants, buyers, sellers, lenders, contractors, architects and engineers. He has represented client’s interests in the resolution of construction disputes including contractual disputes, payment claims, defect claims, building code and zoning matters.
Mark’s practice has been built on his rather unique background: he is also a registered architect and practiced in that field for ten years. His combined experience provides a great depth of knowledge within the development and construction industries, allowing him to simultaneously understand and address both the “big picture” concepts and the minute details of any real estate issue or transaction, and fashion and execute an organized, creative, and effective plan to achieve the client’s required results.
