Real Estate

    If you stop to look at the Bay Area’s most celebrated buildings and public spaces, there’s a good chance you’re seeing a project that Coblentz helped bring to life. We have built a reputation as the “go-to” firm in California for both high-profile projects as well as nuts-and-bolts real estate counsel.

    Our firm’s deepest roots are in real estate law, and the individual attorneys in our practice are the most skilled, experienced, and innovative in the field. Collectively—and through collaboration with the firm’s other practices—we provide clients with valuable counsel on a full spectrum of real estate matters.

    We’re particularly experienced in high profile, complex transactions such as our award-winning work for the 68,000-seat NFL stadium for the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, Uber Technologies’ Bay Area headquarters, the Exploratorium’s world-class museum on the San Francisco waterfront, the San Francisco Giants’ 43,000-seat ballpark and adjacent 300-acre, mixed-use Mission Bay Project in San Francisco, and the LA Clippers’ new arena in Inglewood.

    But we don’t only take on California’s biggest and most visible real estate developments. Our attorneys handle the day-to-day real estate transactions for many premier companies, such as The Carlyle Group, Equity Office, Brookfield Properties (formerly Forest City), Wilson Meany, LendLease, Lincoln Property Company, Spear Street Capital, and UBS Realty Investors. We have created lasting partnerships with some of California’s premier technology companies, sports teams, hotels, restaurants, and cultural, educational, and medical institutions, assisting them in their real estate endeavors for many years.

    In fact, it is our comprehensive approach to real estate that really differentiates Coblentz. Nowhere else will you find seasoned transactional real estate lawyers who also do great public-private partnership work or land use attorneys who are also great real estate counsel. This crossover of talent and expertise ensures that every decision in a real estate project is thoughtful and shaped by the “next step”—whether it’s financing, equity investment, construction, leasing or asset operation.
