Ganfer & Shore represents construction contractors, engineers, architects, designers, brokers, and managing agents. Our attorneys are well-versed in preparing and reviewing contracts for such professionals.
In addition, our real estate attorneys structure, negotiate, and document all types of financial transactions, including secured and unsecured loans, equipment leases, commercial and consumer credit transactions, and workouts for both lenders and borrowers. We represent developers, cooperative apartment corporations, condominium associations, and individuals in complex real estate transactions, but we are also able to efficiently address more straightforward transactions.
Our real estate partners are all well respected for their depth of knowledge and keen business acumen. One of our partners served as Chair of the Real Property Section of the New York State Bar Association.
