Pullman & Comley has experienced real estate transactional attorneys in the firm’s Bridgeport, Hartford and Stamford offices and we work closely with other practices within the firm in order to offer clients the benefit of the full range of our interdisciplinary strength. For example, we draw upon our Environmental Law and Litigation practice in managing environmental risk in real estate transactions and brownfield development projects and with our Land Use attorneys for assistance in seeking, defending and analyzing land use permits and approvals.

Increasingly, the practice represents a loyal and growing roster of clients on complex development projects and has been instrumental in the negotiation of complicated transactions involving multiple parties from both the private and public sector.
