The Needs Of A Modern Business

Experienced Representation For Business And Real Estate Disputes

Hart Kienle Pentecost’s business and real estate litigation attorneys provide wide-ranging legal services to corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and proprietors of all sizes, in a variety of disputes in areas such as multifamily and manufactured housing, commercial and office buildings, shopping centers, warehouse facilities and restaurants. Our attorneys also assist real estate professionals in DRE accusations and investigations by the Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers, professional liability claims, partnership disputes and fiduciary liability claims. When disputes are headed towards litigation, our firm is staffed by seasoned litigators who can provide the diligent and aggressive representation that our clients deserve.

Our attorneys represent parties in state and federal courts throughout California, as well as in mediation, arbitration, and administrative hearings. We often act as “general counsel” for many of our clients – we understand their business, their needs, the importance of being cost effective and results oriented and can provide this advocacy in all phases of litigation including appeals.

HKP also offers seminars to real estate professionals on how to avoid liability, discussing topics such as new CAR forms and disclosure requirements.
