Andy leads a team of lawyers that represents one of the firm’s largest clients (a company in the Fortune 500 top 50) in its nationwide investment and corporate real estate transactions. These transactions include, among many others, the acquisition and development of significant and varied investment properties, the sale and leaseback of a portfolio of 18 of the company’s operation centers located in 16 states, and the acquisition, development, and ultimate sale and leaseback of regional headquarters in three major U.S. cities.
