About Us

LeClairRyan is one of Virginia’s largest law firms in the field of community association law. Click for more information on the firm's services in:

Community Association Representation

The firm’s Community Association Team is composed of community association law attorneys, each highly experienced and respected in the field, as well as other attorneys who focus their practice in other areas of benefit to community associations, such as insurance, zoning, and employment law. Practicing out of the firm’s eleven offices located throughout the state, as well as nearly a dozen other offices outside Virginia, the Team represents hundreds of condominium and property owners associations, both large and small.

The Team’s attorneys have many years of experience advising community associations on all aspects of community association business, including matters such as covenant enforcement, governing document interpretation and modification, general corporate matters, and insurance and general litigation issues.

The “LeClairRyan Difference”

What sets LeClairRyan’s Community Association Team apart from other community association law firms and attorneys? First, unlike general legal practitioners, the Team’s “core” attorneys concentrate a significant portion of their legal practice in the area of community association law. They have the extensive experience that is required to understand the multitude of legal complexities found in the area of community association law.

Second, unlike the boutique law firms with more limited practice areas, the experience of the Team’s attorneys extends to multiple facets of real estate, corporate, and litigation law. In addition to providing the conventional legal services to associations, the Team draws upon the depth and breadth of firm-wide experience to provide associations with sophisticated legal knowledge in the areas of land-use and zoning, real estate transactions, corporate counsel, insurance litigation, construction litigation, and general litigation.

Third, LeClairRyan’s Community Association Team has the knowledge, experience, and sophistication to serve as counsel to large-scale associations, and the personal touch to represent smaller neighborhood associations. Representing associations ranging from small condominiums and neighborhood property owners associations, to large-scale communities with tens of thousands of residents and golf course and resort facilities, the Team’s attorneys are adept at understanding and serving the particular business and legal needs of associations of all sizes and sophistication.

Developer Representation

LeClairRyan’s Community Association Team represents some of the nation’s largest developers in the creation and establishment of planned communities and community associations both in and outside of Virginia.

Practicing out of the firm’s eleven Virginia offices located throughout the state, as well as nearly a dozen other offices located throughout the nation, the Team’s attorneys have extensive experience advising developers on all aspects of the creation and establishment of planned communities and community associations.

Locally, the Team has played an integral role in the development of some of the largest and most complex master planned residential, mixed use, commercial and “New Urbanism” communities in Virginia, such as New Town (Williamsburg), The Villages of Kiln Creek (Newport News and York County), Harbour View (Suffolk), Warrington Hall (Chesapeake), and The Reserve (York County). In addition, the Team has assisted with the creation of over one-hundred condominiums, both residential and commercial.

Whether it is representing large national developers or smaller regional developers, or creating a sophisticated planned community or creating a smaller condominium, LeClairRyan’s Community Association Team offers clients a prompt, efficient, and cost-effective means for the creation of development projects of all sizes and structure.
