A Practical Guide to Real Estate Practice

Everything a real estate lawyer needs to know except real estate law and how to find clients. An introduction to the practice area and, by implication, other transactional practice areas. Designed for a new practitioner or one switching from litigation to transactional work, the guide covers, among other things:

  • Documents and how to work with them, including use of defined terms and Plain English
  • Mistake prevention
  • Dealing with drafts and distributions
  • Working with a team and third parties
  • Negotiations
  • Managing a closing
  • Email, which was already a major challenge when this book appeared in 2001
  • Post-closing activities
