Guiding You Through The Commercial Real Estate Maze

Opening a new business location or relocating your business is exciting, but the legal considerations needed to get your bricks-and-mortar operation off the ground can feel overwhelming. Not paying attention to the details of your lease, the zoning for your property, the environmental impact of your site on the community - any one of these could cost you painfully large amounts of money, or threaten to end your enterprise altogether.

Joan C Scarpa, founder of the law firm Joan C Scarpa, Attorney at Law, LLC, uses her nearly three decades of commercial real estate law experience to advise business clients on their property transactions. Much of her career was spent with Sunoco, where she represented the corporate interests of her company, while also interacting with developers, brokers, engineers and government agencies. Ms. Scarpa has also interacted with individuals and small-business owners who owned Sunoco franchises. In addition, she has worked as a contract attorney for a radio broadcasting conglomerate and facilitated the bulk acquisition of tower and studio leases in 23 broadcasting markets.
