I represent both purchasers and sellers of every asset class of real property through the entire cycle of a purchase and sale transaction, including (i)  the drafting and negotiation of the letter of intent, the purchase and sale agreement and the conveyance documents such as the deed and other transfer-related instruments,  (ii) the performance of due diligence review and investigation with respect to environmental, property condition, leasing, zoning and entitlements, title and other contractual issues affecting the subject property and (iii) the closing of the transaction which includes the resolution of any issues related to title insurance. To the extent that the buyer requires acquisition and/or construction financing, I am also able to effectively navigate the buyer through the financing process prior to the transfer of the property which includes the negotiation of the loan documentation and the closing of the loan upon settlement. I also have experience structuring real property transactions as 1031 exchanges.

I have successively structured, documented, negotiated and closed hundreds of millions of dollars of financings on behalf of both lender and borrower clients in connection with the following finance transactions: acquisition and development loans, construction to permanent loans, mezzanine loans, equity financing, participations, subordinated debt financings, cross-collateralizations and defeasances.

A real estate development or construction project can be a complicated process which involves numerous stakeholders including the owner/developer, commercial lenders, architects, engineers, contractors, municipalities and the local communities at large. An attorney who understands the development process and can bring these stakeholders together by offering practical solutions to development and financing issues can help mitigate the risk of such projects. From zoning, land use, permitting and entitlement matters, to the drafting and negotiation of various forms of contracts and subcontracts, I can assist in moving real estate development projects forward from documentation to construction.

I can assist clients with selecting and incorporating the appropriate legal entities for their real estate and business objectives. Choosing the right entity is critical in managing liability, tax, financing and property transfer issues. Specifically, I represent clients with structuring common investment and ownership vehicles to facilitate the acquisition, development and operation of commercial real estate, including joint ventures, limited liability companies, and partnerships.

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, I can effectively draft and negotiate commercial and residential leases which govern the landlord-tenant relationship. Specifically, I have extensive experience representing both landlords and tenants in connection with office, retail, industrial and residential leases.
