Our Experience

Case Study
After helping GE negotiate an agreement with MassDevelopment to sell 2.7 acres on Boston’s Fort Point Channel, Mintz represented GE in the sale and a leaseback of two historic brick buildings on the site from the new owner — all within six months of the initial discussions.

Our Approach

Throughout downtown Boston, across New England, New York City, and California, our team analyzes, structures, and coordinates uniquely complex projects. We've guided clients in developing thousands of commercial real estate projects — from corporate headquarters to hotels, multifamily residential buildings, office and R&D buildings, life sciences facilities, and parks.

We're proactive — addressing project issues before they become problems. We collaborate effectively with institutional and interdisciplinary project teams to devise effective project development strategies. And we excel at generating creative solutions that help clients achieve their goals. ML Strategies works extensively with internal teams addressing PR issues and challenges. And when conflict becomes unavoidable, clients look to our construction and real estate litigation teams to manage and minimize adverse impacts.
