Neale & Newman, L.L.P.'s Springfield attorneys handle real estate and construction law for clients throughout Missouri. A large firm with small town roots, we treat our clients like we would treat our neighbors: with courtesy and respect.

With over 100 years of operation in Missouri, we understand very well the trends, shifts and dynamics of the real estate market here. As real estate laws have evolved and grown more complex, we have kept up with the times. We handle all aspects of real estate transactions and litigation, representing buyers, sellers and general contractors.

Real Estate Litigation

Real estate law is complex, and it governs some of the largest investments most people ever make. When conflicts occur, the stakes are high. We can handle it. Neale & Newman is a sophisticated law firm capable of handling complex litigation against any opponent. We represent clients nationally and internationally.

American Institute of Architects (AIA) Contracts

In larger commercial projects, the AIA requires certain specialized contracts. Essentially, the contracts consist of lists of terms and conditions. They can be around 200 pages long and are typically meant to protect architects from liability. Although these contracts follow a fairly standard form, they are among the most complex documents in construction law. We represent architects, architectural firms, landowners and contractors in analyzing and negotiating AIA contracts.

Stability, Knowledge and Experience

Founded in 1903, Neale & Newman is now well over 100 years old. In that time, we have become very familiar with our clients and their businesses. We understand the construction industry. We can help you negotiate a contract that avoids future problems. And if you ever need representation in the future, you can bet we’ll be around to provide it.

A Culture of Service

Clients often tell us we’re a different kind of law firm – and it’s because of our culture of service. Our lawyers’ main duties and priorities are to pursue the client’s best interest. We work together to deliver the most cost-effective, efficient service possible. We are friendly and prompt, doing thorough, sound legal work.
