OUR PRACTICE AREAS
Depending on their training and experience, some transactions are within the ability of individuals and business owners to handle on their own. Others are not, especially when a deal touches on complicated areas of the law such as leases, real estate purchase, land use, construction and lending. In heavily-regulated land use areas such as the Lake Tahoe basin, individuals and companies rely on legal counsel to navigate the latest developments from governing agencies affecting their purchases and businesses.
Transactional law attorneys can provide clarity into a transaction, not only because of their legal training, but also because of the objective nature of their analysis.
Because the attorneys at Incline Law Group have been conducting a wide variety of business, commercial, construction and real estate transactions in both Northern Nevada and California for over four decades, they can spot issues overlooked by individuals, business owners and managers, thus saving time, hassles and potentially larger legal fees.
At Incline Law Group, we take pride in our due diligence, attention to detail and savvy when it comes to a thorough consideration of legal and practical issues related to your transactions.
The clarity of wording in a contract is essential not only to make sure everything goes right in a transaction but also to clarify the expectations of both parties and to provide for contingencies. For example, you or the other entity may not be able to perform, or the contract may become impractical or impossible to complete.
At Incline Law Group, we often meet clients whose homespun contracts do not address key issues. In many cases, important terms are left open because they have not been adequately negotiated or addressed in the contract.
A thorough consideration of legal and practical issues is the best way to assure that your contract thoroughly addresses the many different forks in the road that may follow after it is signed. Our experienced attorneys will guide and advise you to help avoid potential pitfalls during the drafting of your contract.

Leasing – Residential and Commercial
Our attorneys have decades of practical knowledge and hands-on experience in drafting and negotiating leases to meet the needs of residential and commercial rentals. It is essential to have knowledgeable legal counsel to establish and protect your legal rights in regards to the property you lease. When it comes to leases, one size does not fit all and there is usually some need to customize the lease to fit your particular circumstances. Incline Law Group will help you draft, negotiate and edit residential and commercial leases. Our attorneys can also assist you in navigating the wide variety of issues that may arise under your lease, such as eviction, payment of rent, condition of the premises, options to purchase, options to extend, assignment and subleasing, and others. The Incline Law Group will make sure your interests are protected in all aspects of your lease.
Construction Agreements, Including AIA ™ (American Institute of Architecture) Form Documents
Construction agreements require complex and multifaceted documentation. Large construction projects cannot be properly handled with a simple handshake and a one-page form. The attorneys at Incline Law Group are proficient in selecting and modifying the appropriate AIA™ form documents. Let our knowledgeable attorneys facilitate your construction agreement process to make sure no essential terms or items are omitted.
Purchase and Sale of Land Use Entitlement (TRPA Land Coverage, TAU’s and CFA’s)

Our attorneys have substantial expertise in these matters within the Lake Tahoe Basin in both Nevada and California, and can help clarify and facilitate your transaction.
