Berding|Weil is a California real estate and litigation law firm with seasoned attorneys who practice in three distinct areas of law: Community Associations and Condominiums; Construction Litigation; and Commercial Real Estate.
Our experienced Community Association and condominium attorneys understand the needs of homeowners living in planned communities and condos and do everything from amending their governing documents to assisting with elections, to drafting contracts, to advising on neighbor disputes, to preparing proper disclosures for prospective buyers, to litigating construction problems. Our clients include associations of owners of residential and commercial condominiums, planned developments, and condominium conversions throughout California, as well as large residential retirement and single-family home communities.
We communicate with our clients so that they understand the unique area of law presented by California's Davis-Stirling Act, the Corporations Code, and all of the case law that has developed for the over thirty years that we have been representing homeowners associations and common interest developments. We also know that common interest developments, their boards of directors and managers are concerned with obtaining legal services at a cost that will fit the associations' budget and provide an efficient, cost effective response to each and every problem.
Our construction defect litigators have years of experience successfully prosecuting complex construction cases against builders and others involved in the construction of buildings of all types. In our 35 years of litigating construction failure disputes, our attorneys have encountered nearly every construction problem that exists. In addition to having long-term relationships with most of the prominent construction experts in our field, they have brought hundreds of cases to successful conclusion through mediation. Not all cases settle with the help of a mediator, however, and our firm is one of the few that have tried multiple construction defect cases to a superior court jury all the way to verdict.
For more than 30 years, Berding|Weil has served the interests of the real estate and business communities with skill, knowledge, professional commitment and relationships built on trust. Our Commercial Real Estate Group has broad experience in virtually every facet of real property law. We handle transactions involving the selection, acquisition, documentation, use, zoning, development, management, leasing, and conveyance of land for a range of clients, including land and building owners, brokers, developers, and investors. Our litigation group litigates these and other real estate issues and a wide range of business disputes.Our commercial real estate attorneys have years of experience in this very specialized field and understand the many important steps that must be taken to properly create critical legal documents such as a commercial lease or development agreement, as well as those required in other commercial real estate transactions.
