Commercial Real Estate Acquisition & Development
At Szaferman Lakind our attorneys, assisted by experienced paralegals, regularly handle real estate sales and purchase transactions for commercial, nonprofit, bank and government clients, for a variety of property types, including vacant land, and improved sites such as office, retail, industrial, healthcare, senior living, education, self-storage, multifamily apartments, condominiums, parking facilities, mixed-use facilities, manufactured housing communities, hotels and specialty-use properties. Our clients include property developers, lenders, investment managers, individuals, and real estate investors. Our attorneys provide a broad range of sophisticated and complex real estate transactions, leveraging our extensive experience in a variety of types of real estate and development matters.
Using the experiences of attorneys across different practice areas, including environmental, regulatory, and tax, we deliver an interdisciplinary approach to our clients’ needs and a seamless approach to representation. Our attorneys strive to provide practical, yet creative, solutions to complex dilemmas that require a solid knowledge of the industry and the nuances associated with complex transactions.
Several of the attorneys at Szaferman Lakind are members of and are actively involved in the International Council of Shopping Centers, New Jersey Builders Industry Association, NAIOP, and various national and local professional associations and trade organizations, and have managed or operated entities involved in buying, selling, operating, and managing real estate.
Szaferman Lakind can also help clients whose primary business is not real estate by explaining clearly the fundamental provisions of a purchase, sales agreement or a lease, focusing on the financial and economic terms. In any representation, we work closely with our clients to understand their businesses day-to-day operations, so that we can effectively and proactively represent their best interests.
