Harry's practice is concentrated in bank and institutional debt financings, and includes borrower as well as lender representations. He has particular experience in debt financings involving real estate investment trusts and with secured financings for high net-worth individuals and family offices, as well as with asset types that often serve as collateral for such financings (such as aircraft, interests in hedge funds and art collections). He also represents dealers and end-users in connection with their derivatives transactions, and on compliance with Dodd-Frank and CFTC requirements. In addition, Harry counsels clients with respect to the purchase, sale and operation of corporate and general aviation aircraft, involving not only new and used "whole" aircraft, but also fractional interests in aircraft operated under major fractional interest programs. Harry is the co-chair of Sullivan’s legal opinions committee.
