Experience

Our team of lawyers has successfully handled the acquisition and disposition of many kinds of real estate properties and projects, including but not limited to:

  • Affordable, multifamily, military and student housing projects
  • Office buildings and industrial/logistics/warehouse facilities
  • Hospitals and other health care facilities
  • Hotels and hospitality facilities
  • Laboratory and research facilities
  • Mixed-use developments
  • Power and energy projects
  • Restaurants
  • Retail centers and other retail locations
  • Seaside and harbor locations
  • Transportation facilities

Because of our deep bench, rich multi-state experience, and multi-disciplinary skill set, we can handle transactions involving hundreds or even thousands of locations across the country when necessary. We have experience dealing with properties across all geographies and locations, and we regularly deal with peculiar customs, ordinances and regulations in idiosyncratic markets, such as Boston, Washington, D.C. and all five boroughs of New York City, as well as surrounding cities in the Tristate area.

Our real estate lawyers understand market-specific customs and practices, as well as the law, enabling us to be highly effective at negotiation, drafting, due diligence and closing. We also have lawyers on our team with specialized knowledge in environmental, insurance, litigation, tax and other disciplines necessary to cover every aspect of any real estate acquisition or disposition of any size.

Our experience enables us to spot and iron out quickly all of the many legal wrinkles that can present challenges to any significant acquisition or disposition. As a result, we can sort through and resolve the quirkiest of issues involving matters such as:

  • Air rights
  • Bankruptcy and foreclosure
  • Common space and party wall agreements
  • Complex easements and cross-easements
  • Condominium agreements
  • Development agreements
  • Environmental contaminants and hazards
  • Insurance gaps and lapses
  • Joint venture, participator and preferred equity agreements
  • Land contribution agreements
  • Leases, licenses and occupancy agreements
  • Leases, net leases and master leases
  • Multi-layer financing
  • Purchase ans sale agreements
  • Transfers of development rights
  • Zoning and land use
