Commercial Real Estate Finance
Real estate development and transactions are governed by many different laws, regulations and policies, all of which continue to grow increasingly complex. Many real estate transactions appear to be routine matters, but changes in laws and regulations can trip up even the most careful individuals. Residential and commercial real estate acquisitions are both significant investments and should not be undertaken without the guidance of experienced professionals. For most people, the purchase of a residence or second home is one of the biggest investments they will make. And for investors in commercial, industrial or income-producing properties, it represents their business and their livelihood. Therefore, it is critical that such clients receive quality representation from an experienced attorney.
My firm represents both businesses and individuals in a wide range of real estate transactions, including acquisitions and sales, leasing, financing and development. The types of transactions handled range from complex commercial developments to house closings. I have worked on large commercial developments, leasing of office buildings, and residential developments throughout Connecticut and especially the greater New Haven area. I also represent buyers and sellers of environmentally contaminated property, in particular addressing the requirements of the Connecticut Transfer Act. My firm can assist buyers, sellers and developers in each step of the process to ensure a smooth and profitable transaction.
In addition, I have developed important contacts in the many other professions involved in the real estate industry: mortgage brokers, real estate brokers, accountants, surveyors and land planning consultants, environmental consultants, and appraisers. I can work with clients to obtain assistance with the many non-legal aspects of real estate transactions.
