They also provide client service across residential and commercial real estate disputes ranging from specific performance of a purchase agreement to land use or zoning issues and construction defect litigation.

Arm's Length Transaction

What Is an Arm's Length Transaction?

"Arm's length" refers to a legal transaction in which buyers and sellers of products or services have no relationship to one another either by blood, marriage, or business dealings. Without a relationship, buyers and sellers can act independently. Without previous ties, an arm's length transaction makes sure neither person feels pressured by the other or acts in connection with one another.

The idea of an arm's length transaction, also known as an arm-in-arm transaction, came about in the real estate market as a way of handling tax authorities.

What Is Cumulative Voting?

Cumulative voting is a type of voting system used by a company's shareholders that allows them to distribute their votes between candidates when voting for a company's directors. It is also known as proportional voting.
