Our experience enables us to quickly discern the key legal issues in a transaction. We understand how difficult it is for developers to find deals that work economically in this state’s competitive marketplace.
Lawyers must drive the momentum of a deal and do everything necessary to diligently negotiate and document agreements as quickly as possible to eliminate extraneous variables that can interfere with a closing. Partner Robert Klausner believes that in every transaction, there may be 20 to 25 issues truly worth negotiating. Typically, the business person believes only 5 to 10 issues are necessary to negotiate. A good lawyer knows how to focus discussion on additional issues without slowing the momentum of the deal.
