Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate transactions can create new homes for families and businesses, and reshape neighborhoods. Ligris represents buyers, sellers, lenders and developers of real estate across Massachusetts.

Our commercial projects range from multi-family residential units to strip malls and larger scale commercial properties. We work closely with investors and developers and can assist clients in not only the acquisition and closing process but also in the leasing and/or development of the respective commercial property.
