EXPERIENCE
  • Represented the seller of 11 Madison in Manhattan in 2015, which (at the time) was the second largest single office building sale in New York City history (US$2.8 billion total deal value)
  • Represented a public REIT, a private REIT and a Canadian pension plan in a US$1.8 billion restructuring and recapitalization of a joint venture

  • Represented a municipality in the successful settlement of a disputed purchase and sale transaction involving highly contaminated property; representing the same municipality in the disposition of its interest in such property to a developer and manufacturer which is anticipated to result in a successful re-use of the brownfield property and long term stream of reliable, utility revenue for the municipality
  • Served as co-lead counsel to the acquirer in a US$22+ billion corporate transaction, involving a publicly-traded real estate investment trust (REIT) that owned 400+ properties globally. The transaction required constant-readiness and "on-call" knowledge of the target's operations as well as the law of 25+ state and foreign jurisdictions in which the target's properties were located. As coordinator of more than 200 lawyers within his Firm over an 18-month period, Michael advised the client on matters pertaining to 100+ mortgage financings, 30+ hedge instruments, 20+ joint ventures, 15+ ground leases, 20+ local development agreements, 30+ taxable and tax-exempt financings, and 400+ existing entities. On a single day in late 2007, Michael and his co-counsel from 5 other leading New York law firms oversaw the closing of the target acquisition which required the concurrent formation of 1000+ new entities, completion of 8 new corporate credit facilities (exceeding US$6 billion), closing of 100+ property refinancings (exceeding US$9 billion), and 40+ amendments to existing credit facilities and hedge instruments
