Identifying and Addressing Complex Circumstances

Our attorneys provide skilled legal counsel to businesses, individuals, government entities and nonprofit organizations involved in a wide range of real estate transactions, including but not limited to the following:

  • Purchase and sale of real estate: We represent buyers and sellers in complex real estate purchase and sale transactions. We have the experience to handle transactions that are contingent on completion of construction projects, financing and/or zoning and land use approval and to devise strategies that limit our clients' financial exposure.
  • Leases and subleases: We draft and negotiate leases and subleases for office or retail space, often including renovation and build-out provisions, on behalf of landlords and tenants. We are attuned to issues such as rent escalation clauses and tenant requirements for telecommunications and electronic data capabilities.
  • Mortgages and financing: Our attorneys have negotiated complex real estate financing agreements that are customized to meet our clients' needs while satisfying lenders' primary concerns. We are also attuned to the impact of lender requirements on landlord-tenant negotiations.
  • Zoning and land use: We regularly advise clients on the impact of zoning and land use regulations on their plans for effective use of their property interests. We are experienced at facilitating solutions with government entities to achieve our clients' goals.

As a result of the work we do in the construction area, we are one of the few firms practicing real estate law that is attuned to the nuances of the New York City Building Code and its impact on real estate transactions. We also monitor developments regarding federal ADA accessibility requirements.

Whether you are buying, selling, leasing or playing any other role in a real estate transaction, contact us to get sophisticated legal counsel to assist you with the pursuit of a successful outcome.
