Getting to Know Lawrence Andelsman
Believe it or not, we weren’t always solely focused on the real estate sector. The firm was a general practice initially. As a recent law school graduate, my focus was primarily on building a strong client base and establishing a reputation for unparalleled clientservice and reliable legal advice—and although we’ve shifted focus as far as the area of law that we specialize in since those early days, those values still remain at the heart of everything Andelsman Law does. Our concentration in real estate commenced in 1999, when I began representing a number of major investors operating in the NYC metropolitan area. This experience allowed me to gain an intimate understanding of all aspects of the the fix and flip business, including, sourcing deals, financing, construction and sales. This invaluable experience afforded me the opportunity specifically tailor Andelsman Law services to the needs of investors and hard money lenders.
As a result, I steadily garnered a reputation as go-to legal counsel for investors, real estate operators and hard money lenders. I then launched my own real estate company, where I bought and sold over 100 properties and further increased my knowledge base, allowing me to offer credible insights to my clients as my considerable experience allows me to analyze any given transaction from all angles—a distinct advantage that other law firms simply cannot offer.
