At Kaufman, Dolowich & Voluck, LLP, the attorneys in our San Francisco real estate litigation practice group have decades of experience providing truly cutting-edge, tailored legal representation to a wide range of clients in the Bay Area, from individual landlords and homeowner associations to large property management companies and publicly traded REITs.

We offer the cutting-edge expertise of a Bay Area real estate boutique backed by the resources of a premier national law firm.

We routinely assist such clients with real estate disputes that include, but are not limited to:

  • Landlord-tenant matters (residential and commercial)
  • Purchase/sale matters
  • Wrongful eviction defense
  • Co-ownership disagreements
  • Nondisclosure claims
  • Condominium issues
  • Tenancy-in-common issues
  • Title actions
  • Partition actions
  • Insurance coverage matters
  • Boundary disputes
  • Lease conflicts
  • Construction and Architectural Litigation

Over the years, we have capably assisted clients with the substantive and procedural nuances required by the complex and rapidly changing Bay Area real estate industry.  We represent our clients’ interests in the diverse legal settings, such as unlawful detainer actions, civil lawsuits, private mediations, and arbitrations.  We have a proven track record of meeting clients’ needs at every stage of litigation.

Transparent Communication and Trial Readiness

We are fully prepared and amply resourced to litigate cases large and small all the way through to trial.  Our clients can be confident at trial and other high-stakes settings that they have the abundant resources of a premier national law firm representing their interests.  We have extensive experience and a record of success in trial, private mediations, and arbitrations.

We are also transparent with clients about the risks inherent to litigation.  Many litigators focus on securing a trial win for the sake of winning.  We have a different approach.  We think like business people and recognize that litigation is not always the most effective strategy for meeting our clients’ overall objectives.  By timely and transparently communicating with clients to understand their true goals in a case and effective legal and business counseling, we can more effectively represent their interests at every stage of litigation.

Even when we pursue an alternative means of dispute resolution, our deep resources and willingness to go to trial and take calculated litigation risks gives us a significant competitive advantage in the Bay Area real estate industry.  During settlement negotiations, we can exercise additional leverage to secure a result that is favorable to our client’s interests.
