Duval & Stachenfeld LLP announced today the launch of its Caribbean/Central America Real Estate Practice Group.
The group will be co-chaired by real estate partners Tom O’Connor and Alan Cohen.
“Our Firm has long been active in the Caribbean and Central American regions, so establishing this practice is a natural extension of our Real Estate Practice Group,” said Terri L. Adler, chair of the Real Estate Practice Group.
Added Bruce M. Stachenfeld, co-founder and managing partner, “We recognized that handling transactions in the Caribbean and Central America have been a significant part of our practice for many years. Committing the Firm’s resources to focus on these areas allows us to provide an exceptional work product and value for our clients.”
Duval & Stachnfeld’s real estate attorneys have particular expertise assisting clients who are investing, owning and/or developing hospitality, retail, office, industrial and mixed-use assets throughout the Caribbean and Central America.
