Cozen O’Connor is thrilled to announce that effective October 1, 2017, all of the lawyers from the Los Angeles real estate and commercial litigation boutique, Gilchrist & Rutter, will join the firm.
Manufactured housing is a critical component of our nation’s housing stock. The team at Cozen O’Connor has been representing manufactured housing community owners, developers, and investors for more than 30 years, and our attorneys have experience with all aspects of the industry.
We work collaboratively with clients to maximize the value of their properties. We advise on acquisition and sale, refinancing, state and local governmental approvals, community relations, entitlements, and operating documents. We also represent community owners in rent control negotiations and litigation, failure to maintain claims, and dispute prevention activities.
Cozen O’Connor is a go-to firm for owners seeking to subdivide, close, or redevelop their communities. We advise and assist with all aspects of entitlements, contracts, and deal structure.
Cozen O’Connor’s Manufactured Housing Practice is unusual in that we offer deep knowledge of the patchwork local and state regulations that govern this industry, as well as general land use, in the context of a full-service national real estate practice.
As part of our commitment to excellence, we stay current on state and local politics, legal and regulatory shifts, and broader marketplace events that may affect our manufactured housing clients. Our team leaders are often invited to speak at industry events on business and legal strategies.
