REAL ESTATE

As a law firm specialized in tax and real estate, we help potential buyers investing safely in the U.S. real estate market, with a primary focus on the New York market. We also assist sellers with the sale of their properties.

We have extensive experience in both residential (condo, coops, multi-family buildings) as well as commercial and office buildings, in representing both individual and institutional investors.

Although we assist both local and foreign investors in their acquisitions, we have a particular focus on foreign individuals and institutional investors (e.g., Luxembourg funds) buying real estate in the U.S.
