Aaron Friedman, LLC

Established in 1991.

After having practiced real estate law in medium and large New York City law firms with well regarded real estate practices for over 6 years, I opened my own office in 1991. 

In over 25 years of running my own business, I have been involved in almost every kind of real estate transaction:

  • the purchase, sale, leasing and mortgaging of commercial, industrial and residential real estate
  • the representation of hotel developers in the purchase of development sites in Manhattan
  • building loans, permanent loans and commercial refinancing
  • acquisition of bonus development rights
  • the resolution of title matters, including estate succession and easement matters
  • the purchase of surplus government property such as a lighthouse, a reserve army base, buildings within the campus of a university and a military housing complex 

I am fully fluent in written and spoken modern Hebrew and regularly represent Israeli clients in their local real estate matters. I also represent numerous Brazilians and other South Americans in their real estate matters in the United States and speak, read and understand Brazilian Portuguese at an intermediate level.
