Our Practice
The Firm has made a strategic decision to focus our talents, resources and energy in a few areas of practice in order to be best able to provide value to our clients. Our Firm represents commercial as well as not-for-profit entities in various industries, including technology, bioscience and health care, real estate, equipment and aircraft finance and leasing, hospitality, fashion, venture capital, insurance, banking and finance, retail businesses and professional services providers.

As a business boutique law firm, our real estate law practice compliments the Firm's other major practice areas. From the sale, purchase or financing of a personal residence to the acquisition, permitting, construction and leasing of a commercial real estate project, real property affects many personal and business decisions. Our attorneys guide clients through this process in a timely and efficient manner. Whether a landlord or tenant, a buyer or seller, a lender or borrower or a developer, we are able to provide quality legal representation and personal attention to our clients.

Our attorneys work with real estate development and management companies in all phases of negotiating, structuring and documenting the acquisition of commercial property. This includes contract preparation, due diligence investigation, land use issues, title insurance and surveying matters. Our clients include management companies and developers of commercial office buildings, office condominiums, and residential buildings.

The negotiation and preparation of commercial leases is an increasingly important area of our business and real estate law practice. A well-negotiated and unambiguous lease is crucial to most businesses, which utilize leased offices, stores or other facilities as a vital component of a business operation. We take the time to understand our client's needs to assist in negotiating appropriate terms and conditions in a commercial lease. Likewise, our representation of landlords recognizes that the lease represents the income, which creates the value in an office, commercial or industrial building. Our goal in representing our landlord clients is to maximize this value while recognizing the dynamic nature of lease negotiation.

In addition, the Firm provides advice in connection with the purchase of residential real estate. The Firm represents sellers and purchasers in transactions involving houses, cooperative apartments and condominiums.

The Firm also assists clients in connection with documentation relating to mortgage financing.
