For the past 50 years, we have advised on many of the most significant real estate developments and other projects in New York City and throughout the United States, helping transform city skylines and reshape the landscape. We were actively engaged on all the supertall buildings in and around Manhattan’s 57th Street corridor and advised on development and redevelopment projects, including the Waldorf Astoria, Time Warner Center and Moynihan Train Hall, as well as Hudson Yards, the largest real estate development project in New York since Rockefeller Center.
We are among a handful of preeminent New York-based law firms with a destination real estate practice — one that attracts clients interested primarily in our real estate talents. We are regularly involved in many of the major real estate transactions throughout the city, including acquisitions and sales, joint ventures, financings and development. For example, we recently represented The Walt Disney Company in the sale of the ABC Studio complex on the upper west side and its relocation (in a creative structure) to Tribeca. We are actively involved in every aspect of real estate law and regularly advise on all aspects of a wide variety of transactions. This experience enables us to understand market terms and conditions and advise our clients accordingly.
We pride ourselves on anticipating issues and providing responsive and creative solutions to real estate developers and owners, investment bankers, merchant and commercial bankers, hoteliers, and others, helping clients buy, sell, develop, redevelop and finance offices; retail/shopping centers; hotels/resorts; and industrial, residential and mixed-use properties across the United States.
