Not much insight here. I’ve been on the opposite side of a couple of their real estate guys in New Jersey. Older guys who seemed like good competent practitioners. Their client was developing a high end independent living community next to my client’s property. They drafted fairly well and were good issues spotters. Their client seemed knowledgeable but maybe a little less institutional and sophisticated than you’d perhaps expect. More like an old school developer type than an institutional client. That’s all I’ve got for you.
