Real Estate Law

Helping Real Estate Investors Grow For The Future.“Deal with it.”

Our real estate practice focuses on the needs of real estate investors. This includes smaller developers looking to raise money from friends and family for their first project to established funds looking to expand their portfolio in Illinois. The road has many twists and turns that Hecht Schondorf can help you navigate. Whether it is putting together an entity with all the different classes of investors, working with financing, dealing with zoning challenges, or negotiating leases with your tenants, if you are a looking to real estate to secure your future, we want to help.
Adam Hecht has years of experience creating real estate investment entities, both for himself and for clients. He has served on zoning boards and planning commissions so he knows exactly what is important to communities when considering a development. He has worked for banks, so he knows what a financier is looking for in a deal, and what they are trying to get out of an investor. Let Adam put his career of experience and practical knowledge to work for you, so you can reap the dividends for years to come.

We like to say Real Estate Law is “Happy Law.”

As the song goes, “you can’t always get what you want,” but generally in real estate, with intelligent compromise on both sides, everyone can end up happy. That’s a rarity in law and life. Real estate also involves “closings.” It may take a long time and involve extensive negotiations and maneuvering, but eventually deals get done. They’re over, complete, and you can move on to the next happy experience in your work existence—perhaps getting a chance to have our firm represent you!
