The attorneys you select as part of your acquisition, sale, development, leasing or financing team are critical to the success of your real estate investment. Blaivas & Associates, P.C. is a boutique firm specializing in one niche area of the law: real estate. We provide counsel on complex commercial real estate transactions. With expertise in handling transactions in the greater New York City area and throughout the United States.


What sets us apart from other firms, large and small, is that we provide large New York City firm expertise delivered in a small-firm setting, and offer an unparalleled commitment to service. We seek to fully understand each of our client’s business needs.



When it comes to law firms, bigger is not always better. We are committed to limiting our client roster to a finite, select group. At Blaivas & Associates, we know our clients and we make it a point to understand our clients’ businesses.


As a small real estate boutique practice, we are able to provide our clients with top talent and expertise while still charging lower fees.

Clients value our ability to quickly and accurately assess their specific needs and objectives and then provide them with personalized assistance and guidance. One of our firm’s greatest strengths is our ability to understand our client’s concerns and goals and to identify creative solutions.


Blaivas & Associates, P.C.

Blaivas & Associates was established more than fifteen years ago when David Blaivas decided to trade in his career with a large Manhattan law firm and establish a boutique firm that would provide clients with the level of expertise and personal attention that he felt clients deserved and expected. His vision was to establish a firm with select attorneys to service a limited roster of clients – clients who wanted a law firm that not only delivered on their legal needs but also understood and could provide guidance on their business goals as well.

In due time, several attorneys joined David Blaivas at the firm. Each brought distinguished credentials and skills. The attorneys of Blaivas and Associates have over fifty years of combined specialized real estate experience, much of which has been at large law firms in New York City.

Not surprisingly, since opening their doors, an impressive roster of clients – including real estate investors, real estate investment trusts, developers and lenders – have chosen Blaivas & Associates as their law firm of choice for all of their real estate needs.



At Blaivas & Associates we assist clients with a full range of services related to real estate transactions. We tailor our approach to meet the individual needs of each client, guiding them through the process of purchases, sales, financing, leasing, joint ventures and developments.  We represent sellers, buyers, investors, landlords, tenants, developers and operators of investment and development property.

David Blaivas has represented my company on real estate acquisitions, leases, financings and project agreements for over ten years. We undertake commercial, residential and mixed-use projects, often with complex financing structures. He is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and hard-working lawyer who is a smart negotiator. I know that I can trust him to use excellent judgment and wonderful people skills to successfully conclude our transactions. We can talk with David in shorthand about all our deals as he understands the business exigencies of real estate and can tailor legal documents and structures to our needs. He is a pleasure to work with!

I have been benefitting from the legal advice of David Blaivas and his colleagues ever since he first set up office in 2005. As in-house counsel to a real estate development organization, I have consistently found Blaivas & Associates to be experts in the field, cost-effective in their approach, and a pleasure to work with.
