The attorneys and paralegals in our Real Estate Practice Group reflect the high level of technical expertise and accomplishment that is characteristic of all Boylan Code teams. We have extensive experience in assisting corporations, businesses, developers, institutional and private lenders, municipalities, governmental authorities and individuals in dealing with a full range of real estate matters including the acquisition, development, financing (including tax-exempt financing), and leasing of commercial real estate; and our Litigation Practice Group provides complete litigation support and service for controversies relating to any aspect of real estate law. Routinely handled issues include title, easement, zoning, leasing, tax certiorari, condemnation and environmental issues as well as financing, loan workout, and enforcement.
Widely Recognized Professionals
At Boylan Code, our senior real estate attorneys are recognized locally, regionally, and throughout New York State as leaders in the profession, and are regularly invited to write and speak on real estate law before other attorneys and real estate professionals. We are accustomed to working with the premier lawyers from other firms, both as co-counsel and on the other side of transactions; and our referral network, both incoming and outgoing, is nationwide.
A Tradition of Handling Complex Transactions
Our real estate experience has, from the outset, included representation of large, sophisticated, institutional investors, a representation that continues to this day. As a result, our systems and methods of practice have been honed to satisfy the highest standards in the industry. We are frequently involved as lead counsel in multi-party financing and acquisition transactions, both in New York State and nationally; and we are fully conversant with every type of conveyancing and financing structure, enabling us to assist our clients in creatively structuring a transaction and seeing it through to completion.
Cost-effective, Responsive Client Service
Because our Real Estate Practice Group includes junior as well as more senior attorneys, we are able to have the right people handling each matter as appropriate to the level of complexity involved. Our attorneys are assisted by a team of experienced legal assistants who enable us to attend quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively to the myriad pre- and post-closing details and service needs that occur in all real estate transactions.
From the Most Complex to Simple Matters
Our broad experience with the most complex transactions enables us to attend to even the simplest matters expeditiously and with appropriate focus. A sample of the type of work we do includes:
- Acquisition and sales of commercial buildings, vacant land, projects, multi-parcel transactions
- Zoning and land use
- Mortgage financing
- Bond financing
- Easement grants
- Tax certiorari
- Title impairment
- Environmental contamination
- Sale/leaseback transactions
- Lease drafting, negotiation, enforcement
- Loan workouts and restructures
- Commercial foreclosures
- Subdivision and development approvals
- Access problems
- Residential closings
- Fair housing
- Land partitions and actions to clear title
- Project leasing sales of “real estate owned” post-foreclosure
Whatever the transaction, our philosophy of client service remains constant: that every matter — from the most complicated multi-state acquisition, to the development of easement and infrastructure, to a client’s purchase of a home, receives our highest level of service and responsiveness.
