Benny Westreich’s practice covers the full range of transactional real estate, representing institutional and individual clients in the United States and abroad in the acquisition, development, financing, construction, renovation, leasing, management and disposition of commercial and residential properties (including hotel, retail, office and multi-use projects).
Benny focuses a lot of his practice on structuring real estate funds and joint venture (including participation structures). He counsels clients on both sides of transactions, including lenders and borrowers, landlords and tenants, developers and finance partners and buyers and sellers.
