Real Estate

Since the firm's founding, we have maintained an active real estate practice. We represent clients in the real estate industry and our real estate practitioners also assist our corporate clients and private individuals with their real estate matters. We bring the same dedication, knowledge and skills to the acquisition of an 800-square-foot co-op as we do to the acquisition and financing of a multi-tenanted commercial building. In an industry where files and closings are often handled by paralegals and inexperienced associates, often leading to costly problems, we staff our real estate matters with experienced professionals who pay attention to the details that ensure a successful closing. We handle a wide spectrum of real estate transactions:

For real estate professionals:

  • Counsel on acquisitions and dispositions of commercial properties, including tax-deferred like-kind exchanges
  • Make all necessary arrangements and prepare all filings for condominium or cooperative conversions
  • Negotiate leases with prospective tenants
  • Negotiate brokerage and listing agreements

For our commercial clients:

  • Negotiate and review office, retail, resturant and individual leases
  • Negotiate construction and secured financings
  • Counsel on sale/leaseback arrangements
  • Negotiate agreements with architects and contractors
  • Negotiate workout arrangements for distressed properties

For individuals:

  • Represent purchasers and sellers of residential and investment properties
  • Handle mortgage financings and home construction contracts
  • Prepare and review leases and subleases for landlords and prospective tenants
  • Negotiate agreements with architects and contractors
