Real estate transactions should be viewed in the context of the company's goals

Jason works with large, noninstitutional real estate private equity groups, financing companies and developers across the country. Instead of taking a singular approach, he views each transaction in the context of his client's broader investment goals and financing strategy. This allows him to better identify the legal risks inherent in each transaction which would be specifically problematic to the client's overall business, and better formulate constructive solutions to mitigating that risk.

Jason has generally found that his clients biggest frustrations during transactions stem from a lack of efficiency in execution of the transaction, or a lack of communication and transparency surrounding expectations and the role of the attorney team. He approaches each transaction with this in mind and attempts to mitigate, if not totally alleviate, these frustrations by over-communicating during the initial stages of a transaction, and after building a solid relationship with his client, using his institutional knowledge of that client's business to be more cost efficient.
