One of Sonkin • Koberna’s core practice areas is real estate, and our attorneys have vast experience handling litigation in all forums involving leases, purchase and sale agreements, loan agreements, title matters, easements and boundary disputes, riparian rights and other real estate-related issues. Our real estate lawyers also have a thorough understanding of Ohio landlord-tenant law, and have handled hundreds of cases involving the enforcement of various lease provisions. Whether bringing a claim to enforce a seller’s obligation to timely close a purchase transaction or initiating an action to evict or collect past due rents from a defaulting tenant and/or its guarantors, our trial lawyers bring the same level of expertise and dedication to achieving our client’s ultimate objective.
Sonkin • Koberna also assists many of its business and individual clients through all phases of the administrative and judicial process in zoning and land use issues/controversies. For example, we regularly appear before municipal and administrative agencies on behalf of our clients to help obtain critical or necessary use permits, variances or zoning reclassifications. And when the local agencies or board members make decisions which do not comply with the requirements of Ohio law, or the provisions of their own municipal codes, our litigators have vast experience challenging those decisions in court.
