Real Estate & Transactional

Many areas of our practice, particularly the representation of trustees/fiduciaries and financial institutions, ultimately involve interests in real property.  A trustee client in an individual case may own a piece of residential real property, or perhaps over 100 parcels of residential property.  A bank client might have a lien on an office building, a residential tower, a multi-purpose retail development or even raw, undeveloped land.  In every circumstance, there is an interest in real property that must be protected and brought to a conclusion.  

Our attorneys litigate issues affecting secured transactions under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, as well as foreclosures on commercial properties, residences and timeshares. 

Oftentimes, the matter in which we represent our client will require the disposition of that property pursuant to various methodologies.  Whether there is a sale by auction, or an arms-length transaction to a disinterested third party, or even when the client takes the property back via credit-bid or surrender, FHEY is there to prepare or review whatever documentation that may be necessary to effectuate that disposition and close the deal.  We are there to make sure the client’s interests are protected, and to maximize the return on the ultimate disposition  of the property.

We have the staff and experience to handle foreclosures on a large scale.

We use our specialized knowledge of insolvency law to preserve and protect existing property interests for our commercial and individual clients who are experiencing economic challenges.
