I am a partner at Lazer Aptheker Rosella & Yedid, P.C. and co-chair the firm's Real Estate practice group. For over 30 years, I have counseled a wide range of clients, ranging from small closely-held and family businesses to large public companies, in structuring and negotiating various types of real estate transactions.
I have extensive experience in the acquisition, sale and development of commercial, retail, industrial and residential properties, with a concentration in tax-deferred exchanges; leasing from both the landlord's and tenant's point of view; conventional, conduit and construction financing; coop and condominium law; and the syndication of real estate ventures, including the drafting of offering statements, operating agreements and related documents.
A large part of my practice is devoted to the representation of some of the largest landlords in the New York Metropolitan area in the leasing of office, industrial and retail properties. I also have substantial experience representing the franchisees of restaurants and other franchised businesses.
