"A transactional real estate lawyer with a great deal of experience servicing acquisition, sale and buyout mandates. He often acts on deals pertaining to office, industrial and multifamily properties." - Chambers USA

Andrew Schorr is a partner in the firm’s Business Transactions and Real Estate practices. He is also a former member of the firm's Executive Committee. He concentrates his practice primarily in the real estate and general business areas.

Andy leads a team of lawyers that represents one of the firm’s largest clients (a company in the Fortune 500 top 50) in its nationwide investment and corporate real estate transactions. These transactions include, among many others, the acquisition and development of significant and varied investment properties, the sale and leaseback of a portfolio of 18 of the company’s operation centers located in 16 states, and the acquisition, development and ultimate sale and leaseback of regional headquarters in three major U.S. cities. These business centers employ many thousands, include ancillary retail and commercial uses, and are among the largest office transactions in each city’s history.

In addition, Andy represents sellers and buyers, lenders and borrowers, landlords and tenants, and others in a wide variety of real estate and business transactions. Andy also regularly represents homebuilders, investors and developers in the purchase, sale, development, leasing and financing of office, industrial and multi-family properties and residential subdivisions. He also advises clients on debt restructuring and loan workout transactions.

Personal Approach

Andy works diligently to help anticipate, address, and resolve issues his clients face in the day-to-day realities of today's business climate. He gets deals done by maintaining a keen focus on both his clients and the other parties' objectives, helping find common ground while carefully managing the details of even the most sophisticated transactions. Andy’s pragmatic approach provides security to clients when a lot is on the line; his effortless communication style makes even the most complex situations comprehensible. As a natural-born problem solver, Andy takes every opportunity to tackle and address roadblocks that may interrupt his client's objectives. His clients appreciate his responsiveness, determination, and dedication.

In his free time, Andy enjoys swimming, both in open water and as a member of a masters swim team. He is also an inveterate snow skier.
