A good real estate attorney should be able to inform his client of his rights and responsibilities related to a real estate project. Therefore, he must know all the legal steps that his client must take depending on the situation, and be aware of the new legislation. He must have a good spirit of synthesis and analysis to find a suitable solution for every problem that arises. He must have good interpersonal skills and be a good negotiator in order to best assist his client in his legal procedures.
A real estate lawyer should be in contact with all real property professionals: developers, architects, real estate agents, notaries, buyers, entrepreneurs, condominium managers, administrations, as well as individuals: owners, tenant’s buyers.
A real estate lawyer most often joins a specialized firm first before setting up his own firm. Conversely, some lawyers choose to advance their careers as a member of the legal departments of large companies or government administrations.
