Counsel for all real estate assets and all business cycles
Andrew is the quintessential real estate lawyer for all asset classes — including distressed assets — and all business cycles. He advises clients on transactions involving large office buildings, hotels, retail centers, industrial facilities and multifamily properties, both on an individual property and on a portfolio basis. He has represented lenders in a variety of loan transactions, including construction loans, multiproperty financings, mezzanine loans and ground lease mortgage loans (involving both fee and leasehold positions). Andrew also represents property owners in the acquisition, sale and development of property, including the negotiation of construction contracts and construction financing, permanent financing and joint ventures with equity investors. Andrew's practice also includes the representation of both landlords and tenants in ground leases and in office and retail leases. His clients include insurance companies, banks, developers, foreign and US investment funds, family-office investors, landlords, tenants and nonprofit organizations.
Andrew takes a holistic approach with his clients, with a focus on a client's position in the market and not only with respect to individual transactions. He routinely works with clients to develop and upgrade their operating platforms and document forms, and he assists clients in anticipating and addressing market trends and issues.
