Mr. Brady concentrates his practice in real estate transactions and real estate tax matters. He has
worked extensively with commercial, industrial and health care clients on real estate closings;
preparation, review and negotiation of real estate contracts, leases, loan documents and
mortgages; representation of lenders, units of local government and property owners in
connection with real estate components of bond finance transactions; review of zoning
ordinances and preparation of zoning amendment applications and legal opinions; review of
surveys; preparation of escrow instructions and easement agreements; and title clearance. He
has also represented clients in the sale, leasing and acquisition of environmentally contaminated
properties.

He also has significant experience and success in filing real estate tax complaints for major
industrial and commercial clients throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. In the recent year, he
has represented businesses in Cook, Kane, DuPage and Lake Counties in challenges of
reassessments, and achieved for these clients single-year tax savings that range from $15,000 to
