Experienced in Complex, Sophisticated Real Estate Matters

The Real Estate Department at Wachtel Missry has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most sophisticated and diverse full-service real estate practices in New York. Our real estate lawyers represent developers of various sizes and degrees of experience, lenders, equity participants, purchasers, landlords and tenants.

Our real estate practice includes national and international transactions.

Our lawyers have recently completed acquisitions, financings, developments and construction projects of major office, retail and hotel properties in Chicago; Philadelphia; New Orleans; Atlanta; Fort Lauderdale; Detroit; Charlotte; Newark; Norfolk, Virginia; Roseville, Michigan; Springdale, Ohio; Cheltenham, Pennsylvania; Merritt Island, Florida; and Vega Alta, Puerto Rico. Frequently, our clients' interests extend to properties and transactions outside of the United States, giving us a growing international presence and expertise. For example, our construction group is involved in several large scale projects in China and India, and our acquisitions and development team has been working on several high profile projects in Mexico.

With experienced, practical attorneys accustomed to addressing all aspects of today's complicated real estate transactions while at the same time anticipating our clients' future needs and requirements, we have a unique capacity to handle sophisticated acquisitions, dispositions, development and financing transactions.

Our law firm provides a broad range of capabilities.

Our real estate attorneys often work in concert with our corporate and tax attorneys, providing our clients with seamless expertise, beginning with the concept for a proposed real estate transaction, and continuing beyond closing through each phase of development (or re-development), leasing, and, eventually, sale and/or refinancing of the completed project.

We assist in creating and implementing ownership and financing structures. Our attorneys provide extensive knowledge and experience in negotiating and documenting the transfers of development rights, federal, state and local tax abatements and other incentives. Our real estate legal services include:

We offer broad-based knowledge and counsel based on in-depth experience.
