We have successfully represented buyers, sellers and lenders in the purchase, sale and finance of retail, commercial, mixed-use, raw land and multi-family properties. Our commercial real estate attorneys are skilled in the negotiation of real estate related contracts and agreements including purchase and sale agreements, letters of intent, long-term leases, ground leases and lease amendments.
Commercial real estate transactions almost always require private or institutional financing.

Alter & Pearson attorneys have experience closing transactions on shopping centers, apartment complexes, commercial offices, standalone retail centers and mixed-use buildings.
Alter & Pearson represents many local residents in residential real estate matters across Connecticut. Our firm understands the challenges and common pitfalls clients face during residential real estate closings.

The firm's attorneys have worked with local and national lenders on transactions throughout Connecticut.
Alter & Pearson is experienced in more nuanced and complex transactions, including raw land purchases, construction loans (including FHA 203K Loans), private financing and multi-family homes.
