Residential Real Estate Attorney In The Northwest Suburbs

Your home is likely the largest asset you will ever own, and it is the setting for much of your everyday life. Because of its importance and expense, experience counts when choosing an attorney to represent you in a real estate transaction.

I am Michael R. Ek, a residential real estate lawyer with more than 25 years of experience. I represent individuals and families in the Chicago suburbs at every stage of commercial real estate transactions — from the initial offer to the eventual closing.

My clients include:

  • People buying or selling homes — I guide residential buyers and sellers though real estate transactions, helping them enter into contracts that protect their interests. I frequently represent people buying summer homes and condominiums in Chicago, and am experienced in helping unmarried partners protect their legal interests when buying a home together.
  • Construction professionals and developers — I represent developers, contractors and anyone else who takes part in building homes in the area.
  • Community associations — I help condominium and homeowners associations draft and enforce their rules and regulations.
  • Parties in real estate litigation — While most disputes can be avoided in advance with a strong contract, sometimes difficult issues come up. When property disputes over real estate contracts or nondisclosure arise, I provide dynamic, thorough advice and representation to help clients maximize their chances of success.

Before starting my own firm, I supervised the real estate section of a large downtown Chicago firm, overseeing all of the firm's real estate attorneys. Now, as a sole practitioner, I am able to combine that exceptional experience with a commitment to individual client service.
