Transactional - Real Estate and Business
The Firm works with individuals and businesses to negotiate all types of contracts with vendors, as well as partnership, joint venture and shareholder operating agreements. Partners David Haber, David Podein and Katrina Sosa work with an understanding of the business realities facing the client, in order to assist the client in getting the deal done. We have assisted corporate clients in asset based lending transactions for their businesses, the sale of businesses, wind downs, liquidations, assignment for the benefit of creditors, and reverse mergers.
The Firm has experience in assisting clients with commercial real estate purchase and sale transactions, real estate based lending, commercial leasing transactions, construction contracts, capital improvement projects, distressed asset transactions, shopping center development agreements, including commercial and mixed use transactions. Because the Firm litigates real estate and business matters consistently, we know what issues to look out for in the negotiation process of these transactions to avoid problems later, wherever possible—without over-lawyering or killing the deal.
