Our History

From its beginning, the Firm was known for its high-quality work in complex real estate transactions.  However, it wasn’t until the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/2009 that the Firm blossomed into a major real estate player.  The Financial Crisis resulted in dramatic changes in the real estate legal environment throughout the world, including a significant impact in New York City, which ultimately presented incredible opportunities to the Firm.

Since that time, the Firm has become The Pure Play in Real Estate Law to evidence its commitment to clients in the real estate industry and its commitment to lawyers who seek to create real estate-based legal practices.  This singular focus has enabled the Firm to become a powerful, resourceful, and connected advocate for its real estate clients and at the same time enabled the Firm to become a place where its lawyers can build successful careers in the real estate industry.
