An International Perspective, Narrowly Applied
RBM employs attorneys and support personnel native to Korea, Germany, Russia, Belarus and New York City. We speak English, Russian, German, Cantonese, Korean and Italian. We have professional contacts in virtually every major industry and in numerous countries throughout the globe, which allow us to not only effectively communicate with our clients, wherever situated, but also serve their needs throughout Europe, Asia and the Indian subcontinent, in areas that are entirely remote to most firms of our size and to many others that are a great deal larger. Our representation of each of our clients encapsulates RBM’s wide range of backgrounds, experiences and world-views, and our advocacy and representation are tailored to suit our clients’ individual needs. We pride ourselves on learning and understanding the unique circumstances and specific objectives of our clients, and we are at all times conscious that legal matters are but one consideration in the process of achieving a client’s goals.
Market Experience and Market Memory
The professionals at RBM have a total of over 100 years of experience in the New York City real estate market. Our team has assisted clients during both boom and bust cycles and during the most recent market downturn we continued to not just survive, but to grow. We appreciate the larger external forces that influence our clients’ decision-making process, and we have the experience required in order to react appropriately to shifts in the market and to anticipate future shifts and prepare our clients accordingly. We believe that a balanced approach to real estate investment, involving both long term and short term strategies for growth, is of the utmost importance in developing a pragmatic course of action. We are not enchanted by illusory short term surges or daunted by transitory slides.
A Network of Trusted Professionals
In addition to our in-house attorneys and support staff, RBM affords its clients with access to an assortment of reliable professionals in industries relevant to their needs. From architects, contractors and tradesmen to mortgage brokers, private bankers and venture capitalists, RBM has aligned itself with individuals and companies that share our vision of exemplary client service and have demonstrated thatcommitment through past performance. While legal considerations may be just one piece of the puzzle, our legal team is a door through which a vast network of resources can be accessed.
