The real estate practice at Krasnow Saunders Kaplan & Beninati is distinguished by its complexity, diversity, and the distinctively practical approach of our lawyers in working with both large and small developers, national retailers, corporate users, and lenders in every aspect of real estate.

We structure and negotiate the most complex transactions and the most basic. When assisting our non-real estate clients with their real estate needs such as office and industrial leasing, we ensure that our work supports their core business.

We are much more than highly accomplished technicians . . . we are deal makers and problem solvers. Our creative problem-solving and tenacity in getting deals done grows from our understanding what each business needs, what each party in a transaction needs, and how to find when there is a win-win solution that accommodates their different goals.

Our special expertise in retail development and retail and office leasing has been nationally recognized. As a result, we have negotiated leases with almost every national tenant. Our real estate lawyers have written and lectured widely on all aspects of real estate.

Krasnow Saunders Kaplan & Beninati LLP is a law firm comprised of business lawyers who represent a broad range of clients in diverse industries and geographic regions across the country, including publicly-held corporations, large financial institutions, family owned businesses, and entrepreneurs.

We bring to each client and engagement our commitment to understand its business and customize an approach that meets its particular needs. While no law firm can be all things to all people, our experience representing such a broad range of businesses benefits each of our clients. Our ability to understand the unique needs of each helps us better serve the others.
