Robert Donnelly Whole Foods Markets

Real Estate Law

For over five years The First Church of Christ, Scientist has engaged Nutter to handle our real estate transaction work. We've bought, sold and leased (long term ground lease) property on or in the neighborhood of The Christian Science Plaza in Boston. We've also drawn up leases for new or renewing tenants in our excess space. In addition, we've had the need to remove tenants who have defaulted on their lease or refused to leave after their lease expired. And, finally, we've been involved in arbitration over a property we chose to take back prior to lease expiration, but in accordance with the contract terms. In each case we've been given excellent advice and timely response with documents once business decisions were made. When negotiating contracts, the tone of the negotiations has been representative of the principles of the Church. Others are treated with respect, dignity, patience, and careful regard for fairness. Nutter attorneys absolutely understand the respect that we believe needs to be accorded to others, whether or not they share our ideals.
