About Peter

Peter L. Curry’s broadly based transactional practice concentrates on commercial real estate sales, acquisitions, leasing and development, and in the burgeoning area of economic development. Specific transactions include counseling major corporations in the fields of telecommunications, barcode technology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals manufacturing, food manufacture and distribution, internet content, and other technology-driven fields in the acquisition or disposal of headquarters sites, manufacturing facilities, and warehouse and distribution centers in all areas of the United States.

As one of the preeminent economic development attorneys in the New York metropolitan region, Peter has participated in Industrial Development Agency bond financings and leases for corporate headquarters, factories and distribution centers, commercial printing establishments, universities, hospitals and other civic facilities, and assisted living quarters and multifamily housing. He is also involved in obtaining grants, loans and other benefits from state and local agencies to foster corporate job growth and retention. Peter presently represents several large commercial lenders in their real estate and construction loans.

In addition to his work at Farrell Fritz, Peter is counsel to the Commercial Industrial Brokers Society of Long Island (CIBS).  He has frequently lectured on Continuing Legal Education course panels for the New York State Bar Association, and before various attorneys, accountants, and business panels.

Perhaps most importantly, Peter advises not-for-profit corporations and groups on all aspects of their missions, goals, and objectives.

Before joining Farrell Fritz, he chaired the real estate and financing practice group at Rivkin, Radler, & Kremer, where he served on the firm’s management committee. Prior to that, he practiced with a multinational Chinese law firm.
