Lessons Learned From over 30 Years of Practice

  • Negotiate in person. When that's not possible, pick up the phone. The internet and social media are valuable tools in today‚Äôs marketplace, but can be used to delay and stymie transactions. Having the ability and willingness to deal directly with all necessary and interested parties saves time and money - and facilitates agreement.
  • Transactional law is different than litigation. A good deal is good for everyone. There shouldn't be losers - only winners. Parties need the assistance in finding the middle ground where win-win is possible.
  • Know both sides. Paula Kaplan Berger has represented landlords and tenants, sellers and buyers, owners and contractors, lenders and borrowers. She understands the concerns of all the parties and is able to identify solutions - reasonable, customary and appropriate under the circumstances.
