Real Estate

Ice Miller’s real estate attorneys act as “legal architects,” putting to use all of the tools in today’s regulated business environment to creatively pursue our client’s goals.

We represent developers, landlords, financial institutions and others who regularly engage in real estate transactions, as well as clients who only occasionally need our services to lease, construct, buy or sell facilities.

Our experience includes Indiana-based clients, clients from across the United States and foreign clients with real estate activities in many states. We work to bring transactions to closing as quickly as possible, while counseling our clients throughout the often complex processes and procedures.
