Real Estate and Real Estate Financing

Real estate transactions are anything but simple matters. Whether you are selling, purchasing, or financing either commercial or residential property, you need the advice and guidance of a knowledgeable attorney.

Mr. Baker, a qualified Fairfield County real estate and real estate financing attorney / lawyer can provide assistance in the preparation and negotiation of loan documents for real estate transactions, the review of commercial leases, the review of co-operative and condominium offerings, and obtaining clear title to property among a myriad of other real estate matters.

Real estate financing can be a complex matter. Whether it’s traditional single-lender mortgage loans, syndicated mortgage loans, commercial mortgage backed securities, bond financing, conduit financing, or mezzanine loans, expertise developed through experience is necessary. Mr. Baker understands both the borrower’s need to maintain operational flexibility and the lender’s need to protect their collateral.

Commercial Litigation

Disputes that arise in the course of operating a business can be devastating to the future of that business. Litigation can last months or years, drain the resources of the business, and severely damage the reputation of the business to the extent that any future success becomes unlikely.

Each dispute is different, and each has an optimal course of action. Whether through informal discussion, arbitration, or ultimately litigation, Mr. Baker, qualified Fairfield County commercial litigation attorney and lawyer, will craft a strategy designed to deliver the best result, in the shortest possible time-frame, with as little cost as possible.

Labor Law

Whether you are an employee or a business owner, the complexities of the labor laws in New York can be overwhelming. In addition, federal standards may apply under certain circumstances, such as discrimination or whistle blowing.

Although employment in New York, absent an employment contract, is “at will” (which means that a worker can be fired for any reason or no reason at all), you may have a wrongful termination case if you have been discriminated against on the basis of certain protected rights.

Appeals

Appellate law requires a very specific set of skills, different than those of a trial lawyer. Mr. Baker understands the details of a complex case and can define the issues in the correct standard of review.

Whether in the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court, the New York Court of Appeals, or the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, you will be in good hands with the representation of the Baker Law Firm and our expert Fairfield County appeals lawyer and attorney.
