The Scopelitis firm represents motor carriers in all aspects of real estate ownership, use, development, leasing, acquisition, and sale. We understand that real estate operations are not the primary business of most motor carriers and strive to provide the advice, background, and support necessary to assist motor carriers in acquiring and maintaining real estate in an efficient and financially sound manner.
Services provided in this regard include negotiating and drafting transaction and leasing documents; due diligence related to condition, feasibility, and environmental conditions; and representation before various agencies of state and local government. Given our extensive practice in the motor carrier industry, we understand the unique needs of motor carriers with respect to numerous real estate issues. Accordingly, we are often called upon to assist our motor carrier clients in devising the means to allocate capital to rolling stock and revenue-producing operations in lieu of real estate.
