When clients hire Bux for a commercial loan transaction or a major real estate deal, they get counsel who can see the big picture, yet not miss any details. Clients benefit from Bux’s ability to manage hundreds of moving parts in a deal, most of which he has seen in his over three decades of active practice. His knowledge of financing and real estate is bolstered by his background in other legal areas such as mergers, acquisitions, banking and tax. Bux listens to his clients’ goals and is relentless in getting their deals completed.

Bux represents lenders and borrowers in commercial loan transactions of all sizes. He prides himself in going the extra mile for clients, whether he’s reading a merger agreement in order to identify provisions that could impact financing or answering a client call on a Saturday afternoon.

Buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants turn to Bux for assistance with their real estate transactions. Bux’s clients include commercial office buildings, restaurants and New York metro area co-ops and condominiums. He represents clients in sales as well as leasing nationwide.
