Legal Representation in Real Property Transactions

Representing and advising clients in matters involving the purchase, sale, development, construction and leasing of commercial and residential real estate for over 25 years.  Clients include a broad spectrum of high-net-worth investors and partnerships, individuals, developers, contractors, leaseholders, and master tenants, as well as public and private companies.  Lead counsel on acquisition, development, leasing and sale transactions involving numerous industrial, office, residential and retail developments.  Typical matters also include title issues, construction related controversies, master planned-development matters and real estate brokerage–client professional relationships.

An individual practice structured to allow the ability to provide time and personal attention to the business needs of individual and business clients involved in complex and demanding transactional matters. This practice structure enables efficient service at an attractive rate structure because it is unburdened by the cumbersome cost overhead demands of a large law firm.  It also enables the provision of the cost effective and attentive professional services that are necessary in the demanding economic environment of contemporary real property business transactions and personal investments.

Always, the primary goal is to maximize client satisfaction.  To achieve this, the client's personal and business objectives must be thoroughly understood to effectively anticipate and deal with the challenging legal issues present in potential and on-going real property transactions.  At the same time, it is important to never lose sight of the need to minimize unnecessary legal costs and to strive at all times to provide cost-effective, high quality legal services at affordable rates.
