Representing Businesses And Lenders In Real Estate Lawsuits
Even in this increasingly virtual world, most businesses become involved in one way or another in the purchase, lease or sale of real estate. When disputes arise, the experienced real estate litigation lawyers at The Stone-Siegel Law Firm in Santa Cruz, California, represent clients in a wide variety of commercial real estate litigation matters.

Our lawyers have more than 70 years of cumulative experience, including extensive experience litigating commercial real estate matters.
We Defend Hard-Money Lenders
As banks continue tightening their purse strings, so-called “hard-money” lenders or private lenders are taking advantage of the opportunity to lend to shunned borrowers.
Working through brokers, hard-money lenders typically offer high-interest, short-term loans to borrowers who cannot get traditional bank financing. The interest rate is higher than standard bank loans and the length of the loan can be as short as a few months.
We represent private lenders in litigation regarding bankruptcies and collections, loan documentation, lender liability matters and contract disputes. We also handle issues related to disputes regarding:
- Loans and financing
- Construction defects
- Buy-sell agreements
- Easements and boundary issues
- Landlord-tenant disputes
