Tannenbaum Helpern's Real Estate Practice provides an interdisciplinary approach to the broad practice of real estate law, and facilitates the exchange of information regarding developing trends, laws, standards and transactions among members of the group. We staff each matter with partners and associates having particular expertise in the subject matter of the transaction, whether it involves a purchase or sale, exchange, mortgage financing, lease, environmental issue or construction.
Tannenbaum Helpern's Real Estate Practice consists of experienced attorneys with broad based technical skills and, equally important, a practical orientation regarding business advice, the structuring of transactions, contracts, and negotiations. Clients include institutional lenders, national and regional developers, investors (including "hedge" and "private equity" funds), national and regional retail operators and owners and tenants of multifamily and commercial properties.
Our attorneys are regularly engaged in commercial and residential development, representing developers in assemblages, acquisitions, leasing, construction and permanent financing and tenants and landlords in "big box" leasing transactions and commercial office and retail leasing projects. Our attorneys also have been extensively engaged in workouts, loan restructurings and asset acquisitions on behalf of lenders and borrowers, and in matters involving condominiums and cooperative housing corporations. We have the luxury of drawing upon the expertise of our Corporate, Tax, Financial Services and Creditors' Rights groups in structuring transactions.
We also have a significant real estate litigation practice that has been involved in several leading and precedent setting cases involving such areas as workouts, foreclosures, contracts of sale, condominium and co-op sponsor defaults, flip tax regulations and "Yellowstone Injunctions." Our real estate attorneys actively work with our litigation attorneys to augment litigation teams with substantive real estate experience.
