What do you focus on?
Acquisitions and Dispositions
My practice covers all stages of purchase and sale transactions from planning and drafting documents, through negotiations and closing. I represent clients such as institutional lenders, major developers, and owners by counseling them on purchase and sale agreements, tax structuring, title review, and other site acquisition services.
Condominiums and Cooperatives
As part of my commercial real estate work, I guide investors on the formation and conversion of condominium and cooperative properties. I prepare offering plans and navigate the submissions process with the attorney general’s office—which has helped cultivate strong relationships with various city and state agencies. As an appointee to the NYC Cooperative and Condominium Committee, I am apprised of cutting edge issues in the world of condos and coops, permitting me to keep my clients and firm colleagues aware of critical legal developments.
Mortgages and Financings
I draft purchase and construction financing documents—including loan documents, assignments, modifications, subordinations, certificates, resolutions and consents—for commercial and private lenders and borrowers. My experience forming business entities and structuring corresponding documents such as LLC and partnership operating agreements enables me to analyze business opportunities for clients from both a business and legal standpoint.
The depth and breadth of our national real estate practice allow me to get involved with many different aspects of commercial leasing. I represent both landlords and tenants to negotiate, assign and amend commercial, retail, and ground leases.
