Moses & Singer has a dynamic real estate practice touching virtually every facet of the industry. The group regularly counsels owners, developers, private REITs, pension funds, lenders, borrowers, landlords, tenants, hotel operators and property managers in New York City and nationally in the acquisition and divestiture of real estate, sustainable development, leasing transactions, financings, formation of joint ventures and restructuring and insolvency. We effectively closed transactions through the peaks and troughs of the last few major real estate cycles. The group is comprised of attorneys with a thorough working knowledge of every aspect of real estate transactional law-attorneys who also have keen market insights into the ever-changing world of real estate and real estate finance gained through varied and challenging representations. To provide comprehensive representation, and assure the best possible result, we frequently call upon resources in other practice groups-including banking, bankruptcy, corporate, tax and litigation. In particular, Moses & Singer has a significant real estate litigation practice representing major developers and owners in a wide range of problem situations.
