Her practice focuses on the representation of developers in acquiring, financing, constructing and converting properties to condominium or cooperative ownership. She prepares cooperative and condominium offering plans for vacant and occupied residential properties and mixed-use projects and handles the registration of such offering plans with government agencies. She also prepares registration statements and submits registration statements to government agencies in New York State for private placements to raise money for real estate investments.
