I am a creative person who enjoys collaboration—which is partly what drew me to a transactional practice, as opposed to one focused on litigation, in the first place. I enjoy working with my clients and others towards a mutual goal, such as closing a real estate deal, through which everyone can benefit, rather than being entirely adverse to someone and having one side walk away having completely “lost.”
Ted Harrington counsels lenders, borrowers, purchasers, and sellers on all strategic aspects of commercial real estate. This includes corporate lending and financing, leases, title work, general corporate structuring, and advising on tax and insurance structuring strategies.
Ted also works with wealth management professionals to assist their often ultra-high-net-worth clients with creative tax solutions, including tax-smart investments in insurance products—such as private placement life insurance and premium financing (for individuals) and private enterprise-risk insurance (on the business side). “We often recommend these strategies leading up to big liquidation or otherwise taxable events, such as a merger or acquisition,” Ted explains.
Clients appreciate Ted’s responsiveness and approachability, along with his willingness to explain often complex strategies clearly, in order to help them make decisions on how to proceed.
