Nationally Recognized Experience

As real estate transactions can vary greatly in size, specificity and the number of parties involved, it’s important to partner with a law firm who has a strong understanding of real estate law and the ability to guide clients through the process involved in real estate financing.

Our Banking and Financial Services and Real Estate attorneys have represented clients with financing needs related to commercial real estate and residential lending. This includes construction financing, building multifamily homes, warehouse projects, EB-5, leasehold mortgages and other construction projects where real estate finance law expertise is needed. We have also assisted clients with lending involving the Small Business Administration, New York Small Business Development Center, industrial development agencies and other quasi-governmental agencies.

We have nationally recognized experience representing large corporations, real estate investment trusts (REITs), private developers, public utilities, municipalities, individuals and others in connection with large and small commercial, industrial, retail and residential projects.

We also focus on all types of tax-exempt and taxable industrial revenue bonds, straight leases, the sale and hypothecation of timeshare loans and mortgage warehouse lending, and the workout and restructuring of all types of real estate loans.
