Worcester Commercial Real Estate Attorneys Handle Your Transactions

Facilitating commercial projects in Worcester for more than 35 years

The required investment of capital and effort — as well as the potential risks that accompany major commercial development projects and real estate transactions — can be substantial. Nevertheless, when these projects are successful, the rewards can be even greater. For these reasons, minimizing risk during these high-stakes projects is of paramount importance. And having access to sound legal counsel can go a long way toward accomplishing that goal. For more than 35 years, commercial developers in the Worcester area and throughout Massachusetts have placed their trust in our attorneys at Gould & Ettenberg, P.C. to provide just this type of support. Our lengthy history and reputation for high standards has allowed us to build the relationships necessary to help our clients get the most out of their commercial property and development projects.

Services for commercial lessors and lessees

Many companies — perhaps even a majority — rent rather than own their principal places of business. The commercial leases that govern these landlord-tenant relationships are substantially more complicated than leases that govern residential transactions. To keep these relationships secure, harmonious and lucrative, an experienced real estate attorney from our firm can draft and negotiate leases and provide counsel for disputes that may arise regarding:

  • Responsibility for insurance and taxes
  • Risk allocation
  • Modifications to the premises
  • Treatment of fixtures
  • Calculation of rents
  • Limitations on use

Assistance for developers

Major commercial development projects involve many legal issues. To keep these projects running smoothly, promoters must be able to maintain good contractual relations with all parties involved. They must also be able to navigate local zoning requirements and meet other regulations to avoid delays and even civil liability. Our attorneys thoroughly understand the applicable zoning laws and land use regulations and have represented clients before numerous local zoning and planning boards and other regulatory authorities.

Gould & Ettenberg attorneys have played a central role in various major shopping centers, office complexes, industrial parks and other commercial ventures in the Worcester area, including the first Wegmans store in Massachusetts. When New England entrepreneurs and developers decide to put their businesses on the line through a major commercial development venture, they trust our attorneys’ legal experience and history of success to help them achieve their goals.
