Attorneys providing skilled Real Estate services and representation
Graubard Miller represents a broad range of clients in connection with varied and complex real estate matters. Our clients include owners, developers and managing agents of commercial and residential properties as well as lending institutions, sponsors and boards of cooperative housing corporations and condominium associations. Our attorneys provide insight and creativity to structure transactions that meet our clients’ goals and improve their bottom lines. We provide knowledgeable counsel from due diligence through acquisition of property, management and development.
We regularly represent clients in matters related to:
Real estate transactional work: A real estate deal is high stakes for all involved. You cannot afford to have something go wrong, and you especially cannot risk the deal falling through. Our attorneys provide a variety of services and advice to ensure a smooth real estate transaction.
Commercial leasing: We regularly negotiate and prepare leases on behalf of owners, tenants, and subtenants of professional and retail space, including offices, industrial facilities, restaurants, showrooms and studios. Our attorneys draw upon their knowledge and experience in landlord-tenant law, real estate transactions and tax law to craft leases that meet our clients’ specific needs.
Landlord-Tenant matters: The laws governing the landlord-tenant relationship can be complex, and at times, confusing. Yet there is much at stake in any dispute between these two parties, regardless of whether the property is residential or commercial. We counsel our clients in their rights pursuant to their leases and applicable law and strategize how best to achieve their goals through negotiation or litigation.
Rent regulation: We have extensive knowledge and experience in all phases of rent regulation, including rent stabilization, which enables us to identify and address issues which affect management and profitability of buildings. We represent clients in contested matters before agencies which regulate real property, such as DHCR, and challenge agency determinations in the courts. Our extensive knowledge and experience in rent regulation allows us to perform thorough and targeted due diligence prior to the sale or purchase of multi-family housing.
Cooperatives and condominiums: Our lawyers represent sponsors and boards of cooperative corporations and condominium associations as general counsel in corporate matters, operations and litigation. We also represent cooperative tenants/shareholders and condominium unit owners in disputes with sponsors, boards and other shareholders or owners. These often involve claims of breach of fiduciary duty and contract issues. We also handle sales, purchases, leasing and financing as well as re-financing of underlying mortgages and related matters.
