Shepard A. Federgreen

Director, Real Property

Mr. Federgreen provides advice in connection with a wide range of real estate transactions, presenting clients with strategic options to meet their business goals.

Areas of Focus

Real Estate Transactions

Mr. Federgreen has represented clients in real estate transactions, including:

    • commercial, industrial, retail, and ground leases for both landlords and tenants
    • acquisitions and sales of vacant land, vacant buildings, and occupied buildings, including office buildings, industrial buildings, retail centers, and lodging, as well as performing and non-performing debt instruments secured by real estate
    • joint ventures
    • mortgage financings for both lenders and borrowers
    • easements for both grantors and grantees
  • public-private partnerships, including “redevelopment agreements” on behalf of both designated redevelopers and governmental agencies

His clients include companies that deal in real estate every day; companies across all industry lines that deal only with a lease for their one location every five to seven years; and just about everything in between. Transactions, although primarily concentrated in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, involve real estate all across the country.
