Real Estate

Major law firms turn to our Real Estate group to assist them with their leases for their New York office space. Because these deals so profoundly impact the finances of a firm over many years, these transactions demand top quality lawyering. Our Real Estate attorneys are recognized leaders in the field with deep experience in all elements of leasing and build-out of office space.

Recent leasing matters they have successfully completed include the representation of:

  • A major international law firm in negotiating a 188,000 square feet lease at a new Boston Properties’ building at 250 West 55th Street, which will serve as the firm’s new New York office.
