We feature an exceptionally versatile group of real estate finance lawyers, with first rate legal skills and an innate sense of market terms at any given time.

Our clients include commercial, investment and private banks, insurance companies, pension funds, specialty lenders, funds and investors who call on us for a wide range of financings, including portfolio financings, bridge loans, acquisition loans, permanent and construction financings, senior and subordinate mezzanine loans, syndicated loans and leasehold financings. We also regularly advise on issues involving intercreditor relationships and participation agreements within the capital structure.

We offer a deep understanding of every major asset type, including residential rental buildings, condos and cooperatives, offices, retail properties, shopping centers, hotels and industrial properties throughout the U.S.

Our clients also benefit because we frequently address and litigate issues from both a debtor and creditor perspective, including the representation of debtors, secured lenders, landlords and investors in all aspects of the workout, restructuring, reorganization and bankruptcy arenas. We also advise investors in the purchase and sale of complex mortgage and mezzanine loans, and in splits, participations and syndications, including A/B loan structures, and multi-party intercreditor and participation arrangements.
