Phil handles every aspect of the planning, development and implementation of projects, from pre-acquisition due diligence to the preparation of offering plan materials and no-action applications, as well as the marketing and sale of property offerings.

His often reviews hotel management agreements, assisting in the development of the sales programs for extended-stay and hotel condominiums and preparing homeowners association documents for a variety of projects.
