If you own commercial or residential property in the Boston area, you have a unique and valuable asset, which should be a source of steady revenue.

We provide reliable advice and determined representation to overcome problems with tenants, so you can continue to derive the maximum benefit from your real estate investment.

When conflicts escalate, we provide advice on how to proceed without incurring legal liability.
