Real Estate




Ken Freeman represents financial institutions and other lenders in a wide variety of syndicated and single-lender real estate financings, including construction, acquisition, mezzanine and long-term loans. He also has extensive experience with restructurings and unsecured credit financings.

Although representing lenders is his primary focus, his practice extends to a wide variety of other real estate transactions, including buying and selling of office and multi-family properties, the leasing of office, industrial and retail properties and property management issues.

Having worked on some of New York's most high-profile real estate deals, Ken is well-regarded as a thought leader in real estate financing. Clients appreciate Ken's collaborative approach, and he works with both lenders and borrowers on highly complicated financial structures in order to find solutions quickly and move deals forward.
