Company Description:


Brouse McDowell is a full-service business law firm based in northern Ohio. From offices in Akron, Cleveland, Naples, Toledo and Youngstown, our 80+ attorneys serve clients across the region and far beyond. We’re a mid-size firm with the talent, diverse experience and national reach of a large firm and the unwavering service ethic and personal touch of a small firm.

With more than 100 years of history, we continue our long tradition of delivering sophisticated legal counsel to clients ranging from sole proprietorships to the nation’s largest corporations. We frequently guide clients through their most important challenges and opportunities, and manage the business in a way that allows us to deliver exceptional value. Our commitment to value guides our rate structure, our staffing practices, how we use technology, and every other aspect of our operation.


In the life of any business, and particularly as companies expand - leasing and owning real estate are important considerations. Real estate transactions are as diverse as the organizations and people who transact them. Brouse represents owners, developers, investors, lenders, borrowers and businesses in commercial, residential and industrial real estate projects and transactions. We provide our clients with legal counsel, practical guidance and extensive experience in navigating all the stages of a real estate transaction.

Brouse McDowell’s real estate practice has been involved in numerous landmark real estate developments across the region and country. We have assisted in the formation of business entities for the purpose of buying, selling, leasing and financing real estate projects. We have broad experience in diverse forms of real estate finance, representing both lenders and borrowers in acquisition and development loans, construction loans, permanent financing and economic incentives.

On the acquisition side, we assist in the purchase of all types of real estate, from raw land to fully improved and occupied projects. Included among our clients are major developers of commercial, residential, retail and industrial projects. In addition, we represent contractors and real estate professionals, as well as entities whose primary business is not real estate such as retail tenants, governmental entities, and more.


We work closely as a team with other practice groups and lawyers within the firm to develop and implement creative and practical approaches in assisting our clients with their real estate needs. With our litigation practice group, we have assisted clients in resolving construction and zoning disputes.With our health care and corporate practice groups, we work together on real estate transactions, including buying, selling and financing of property. With our insurance recovery practice group, we have advised on insurance disputes between construction project participants and their insurance carriers. With our commercial practice group, we regularly deal with real estate in the bankruptcy court or in work-out situations. With our environmental practice group, we work closely in handling all the environmental issues and challenges that arise in dealing with real estate. With our tax lawyers, we structure real estate transactions to take full advantage of the tax laws.

Real Estate law requires real experience. Brouse has it.
