Lawrence Kamin’s real estate practice group offers vigorous representation and advocacy for clients in all areas of real estate transactions, including the acquisition, sale, financing, development, leasing, management and operation of retail, office, institutional, industrial, mixed use, multi-family, and farmland property. We have handled real estate transactions over a spectrum of uses, including heavy and light manufacturing, medical, refrigeration & cold storage, flex space, research and development, showroom buildings and biotech uses.
