Special Counsel

"There's no greater feeling than seeing a formerly empty space and knowing you were involved in developing it into something vibrant and full of purpose."

Alexandra negotiates, drafts, and reviews purchase and sale documents, lease agreements, and other site-control and land-use documents and provides legal guidance on issues involving construction and property management. She also negotiates loan documents and coordinates closings with all required parties. Alexandra has substantial experience handling retail lease negotiations, interest-rate swaps, mortgage-consolidation agreements, and mortgage assignments to mitigate NYS mortgage taxes.
