REAL ESTATE LAW
Our experience includes condemnation, zoning, institutional finance matters, residential and commercial real estate finance and real estate-related litigation. The Firm’s approach in real estate transactions emphasizes coordination with other professionals, both within and outside the Firm (including lawyers and other professionals specializing in governmental relations, architects, engineers and consultants), in order to achieve the objectives of our clients. Our attorneys have represented public and private entities, as well as local and national organizations and agencies, including corporations, partnerships, entrepreneurs, financial institutions, operators, developers and individuals in the business of developing, owning, managing and operating real estate assets.
Firm attorneys represent clients in all aspects of commercial and residential real estate transactions, including acquisition, financing, and development. We have represented lenders, borrowers and purchasers in commercial real estate ventures. The real estate projects in which we have participated include retail, office, residential and mixed-use developments. Representation includes negotiation and preparation of commercial lease agreements (for lessors and lessees), construction contracts, creative real estate financing, foreclosures and administrative zoning proceedings, including the representation of developers before municipal agencies.
We have been involved in an array of sophisticated development transactions which include private and public investment in secured and unsecured debt, acquisition financings, credit enhancement, leveraged and synthetic equipment leasing, equity securities, structured debt financing and project financing for transit equipment.
