In this episode, we are speaking about commercial real estate and family business law with one of the most experienced and decorated attorneys at a large New York City firm.
Please welcome Belinda Schwartz - the chair of the Real Estate Department at New York law firm Herrick Feinstein LLP. As one of the only women in the country to chair a major commercial real estate practice, Belinda has high-level insights into New York’s commercial real estate market, including trends and issues impacting development & sales, leasing, hotels, condos/co-ops, and more.
Belinda serves as outside general counsel to many family-owned real estate businesses with portfolios valued in excess of $1 billion. In this role, she helps manage a full range of transactional and operational matters, as well as succession, tax and estate planning concerns.
Belinda's clients include prominent developers, owners, funds, investors and family-owned real estate businesses, whom she advises in complex debt and equity transactions, such as real estate restructurings and workouts, fund formation, property acquisitions and sales, joint ventures, development deals, construction matters, ground leases, and commercial leases.
