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
