Biographical Information:

Eric Finkelstein is a seasoned commercial real estate attorney who builds on his experience representing local, regional and nationally recognized businesses to navigate a wide variety of complex property transactions on behalf of the firm’s diverse client base.   Eric’s practice includes retail, office and industrial warehouse leasing where he represents both landlords and tenants; acquisitions and sales; commercial lending and condominium development and regulatory compliance.  His depth of knowledge and experience coupled with a personable approach with his clients places Eric at the collaborative center of significant firm-wide matters ranging from a medical practitioner’s purchase of their office space to an industrial landowner’s disposal of environmentally contaminated property.
