The first thing I learned as a lawyer is ….

that the complexity of the legal issues does not depend on the volume of the transaction, and in the end, it all comes down to a well-equipped legal toolbox.

What I like about real estate law …

the combination of various areas of law coupled with a dose of “glamour” when a distinctive building is planned, acquired, or sold.

This is important to me in my work …

to avoid legalese and to describe the issues in a clear and understandable way.
