Attorneys are like real estate agents in that some dabble in commercial real estate, while for others it is their primary business. Go with the latter, and you will be happier with the end result. Try and stay away from generalists when hiring an attorney. Ask them what types of legal work they do. If they use words like general or business attorney, keep looking. You want an attorney who has specific experience in the type of building or land you want to buy. Ask lots of questions, and find out what their fees are upfront.
