Real Estate Acquisitions and Dispositions
We represent REITs in the acquisition and disposition of a wide variety of real estate assets throughout the United States and place great emphasis on the long-term implications of each transaction. The frequency with which we deal with complex real estate transactions affords us a distinct advantage in effectively and efficiently addressing our clients' concerns and objectives.

We routinely assist our REIT clients in obtaining all types of financing, both from traditional balance sheet lenders as well as from agency lenders such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and HUD. Our expertise includes the negotiation and documentation of acquisition loans, permanent and bridge loans, construction loans, ground lease financing, mezzanine financing, and financing to joint ventures. Always mindful of our clients' sensitivities (such as the allocation of loan recourse among joint venture partners or the impact that state licensure suspensions or downgrades could have on a credit facility), we are careful to guide our clients to resolutions that meet their particular needs.

Entitlement and Development

Our attorneys have in-depth experience and knowledge in all facets of land use approvals including general and specific plans, zoning, conditional use permits, variances, and related matters. In addition, we have expertise in all stages of the construction and development process including negotiating construction contracts and implementing customized insurance programs. This expertise, coupled with our firm’s overall acumen in real estate matters and our in-depth understanding of the particular goals and objectives of each REIT client, affords us the ability to provide each client with comprehensive and integrated services at every stage of the entitlement and development process.
