Real Estate and Construction Lawyer

Protecting your projects with iron-clad contracts

I started my construction business in 2015 and it grew faster than I could have anticipated. Kevin reviewed and updated all my contracts and payment schedules, helping to ensure I would get paid on time.  As an advisor, he has helped me understand the ‘business’ side of running a construction company.  I have peace of mind having Kevin Courtney as my attorney.

Malcolm DeBrus, DeBrus Construction,
San Francisco


Here are some recent highlights:

  • Shopping center development and lease out in Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Commercial lease negotiations with national franchisors in California and Nevada
  • Negotiated sale of a national brand hotel in Paso Robles, California
  • Raw land development purchase and sale negotiations of 30+ acres in South County
  • Obtained sub-contractor Mechanics Lien for $500K in San Francisco
  • Litigated dissolution of real estate partnership involving 14 properties

If you are a developer, contractor or property owner, we don’t have to tell you that real estate and construction in the state of California are highly regulated industries. It’s critical that you understand the law and stay compliant, but this can be a slippery slope for someone who’s not an expert.
