We are proud to introduce the new full-service real estate law firm Lester Shaw & Levy LLP.
Founded by seasoned real estate attorneys Ian Lester, Martin Shaw, and David Levy, the practice is a “one-stop-shop” focusing on all aspects of commercial real estate transactions – from dirt to sky – allowing clients to benefit from comprehensive guidance and counsel. Joining Lester Shaw & Levy LLP are attorneys Allen Schifino, Liren Shuo, Zoe Aaron, and Daniel Gammerman.
The thesis of this firm is that everything real estate and corporate is interconnected, and that lawyers add value to their representation by understanding how all the pieces fit together. That leasing representation, for example, is enhanced due to expertise in construction, litigation and corporate structuring. That joint venture representation benefits from experience with projects gone sideways. Our firm’s clients further benefit from our years representing multiple institutional and individual clients in real estate development, leasing, financing, structuring and acquisition/disposition.

Together, attorneys at Lester Shaw & Levy LLP have over 125 years of experience representing clients in all phases of the real estate cycle.

From market booms to recessions and back again, including initial construction and development, financing and ultimate disposition through lease up or sale. The varied backgrounds and experience of all attorneys, coupled with a collaborative approach, enables the firm to effectively “see around corners” to predict and mitigate risk, suggest effective strategies tailored to each client’s priorities, and partner with clients to create and implement practical solutions.
With representative transactions ranging from joint ventures, parcel acquisition, financing, construction agreements, litigation, and more, the client roster of Lester Shaw & Levy LLP includes institutional landlords, multinational corporations, media companies and concert venues, national retailers and entrepreneurs, as well as private equity and fund clients in various capacities.
 Lester Shaw & Levy LLP is headquartered in Dumbo, Brooklyn and serves clients across the country, with a focus on the Greater New York City area.
