Newport Business Litigation & Employment Attorney

The seaside city of Newport is located on Aquidneck Island in Rhode Island’s Newport County. Sometimes referred to as the City by the Sea, or the Sailing Capital of the World, Newport is situated nearly 40 miles southeast of the city of Providence, the state’s capital and most populous city, and 74 miles south of the city of Boston, a key hub for the New England region.

Like many cities in New England, Newport has deep historical roots, with origins dating back to the colonial era. In fact, much of the city’s architecture has remained intact, with the city having a high number of buildings surviving from the Colonial period.

Although Newport is the county seat of Newport County, the county no longer holds any proper government functions, aside from courts and sheriff operations. The capital city of Providence is the most populated city in the state of Rhode Island.

Among the real estate locales along the east coast, few remain as attractive as Newport and the New England coast, especially for commercial real estate and development. As a result, it is conceivable that individuals or companies may require legal assistance regarding any number of real estate legal issues.

Commercial Real Estate Law in Rhode Island

When legal matters arise for commercial real estate developers or manufacturers, it can cause a significant headache, beyond a business perspective. Many commercial developers operate on projects including residential units, like condominiums or subdivisions, or other commercial projects like retail or hospitality units, which affect more than just the financial bottom line – they affect a growing number of people.

There are any number of issues that a commercial developer of manufacturer may face during the course of a project, regardless of its classification, including:

  • Permitting
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Tax issues
  • Locating buyers
  • Closing deals
  • Resolving disputes
  • Obtaining funding

No matter what the situation is, when it comes to the law and commercial real estate, it is important to take the proper precautions. Checking with a qualified attorney, who can provide guidance according to state and federal law, can help prevent a number of these issues from surfacing, saving commercial companies both time and money during the course of a project.
