Real Estate, Business and Finance Transactions

Our real estate transaction practice includes representing developers, buyers, sellers, lenders, investors, landlords and tenants across all product types – from apartments to office buildings, industrial parks, shopping centers and raw land. In purchase and sale transactions we manage all aspects of legal due diligence, which we tailor to the nature of the property and the end user’s objectives. Our due diligence also takes into account the unique considerations of urban, suburban and rural properties.

In our business practice we represent entrepreneurs and venturers in forming, operating, growing and selling businesses of many types – from restaurants to real estate brokerage, underwater equipment design, manufacturing and more.

Our finance practice involves representing lenders and borrowers in matters such as real estate secured loans, asset-secured loans, intercreditor arrangements, exercising remedies, and unique assets including fleets of ships and other vessels.

At all times our focus is on the immediate needs and future objectives of our clients.
