Purchases and Sales

Our Real Estate Group represents a wide spectrum of buyers and sellers in both residential and commercial real estate matters including developers, cooperative boards, lenders, individuals, small businesses and large corpo-rations. We have earned a reputation for providing both the personal attention that each customer deserves and creative solutions that address all the client’s legal requirements and practical needs. In fact, we are often referred to new clients by leading real estate brokers, builders, and architects in the New York area.

Our real estate attorneys provide well-timed and well-conducted negotiations, accurate documentation to expe-dite transactions, and a meticulous attention to detail. We conduct careful, extensive due diligence for every transaction and review board minutes, building financials, and contact management companies in search of potential litigation, noise, water, infestation, or other such issues. For new construction projects, we carefully
review the offering plan materials and provide a detailed written summary memorandum.

In all transactions, we use the collective legal experience gained over decades to provide contract language that further protects our clients. We keep our clients apprised of major events as they occur and readily answer their questions throughout the transaction.
