Partner Yariv Ben-Ari was quoted in The New York Times, discussing how real estate's reliance on face-to-face interactions have changed in the time of COVID-19.

In a conversation about the "new" closing process, Yariv discussed how a "backlog of requests to property managers and to county clerks’ offices, some of which are closed or are working shortened schedules, has made it harder to determine what is currently owed in taxes or unpaid utilities, so title companies are holding estimated fees in escrow to help move deals forward... despite the hurdles, deals are still proceeding."
