BlockShopper Dishes the Basics on Lawyer Real Estate Transactions

Blockshopper Our friends at Above the Law occasionally go all "Cribs" with their Lawyerly Lairs feature. But to make those pages, a lawyer and/or his lair have to be pretty high profile.

If you're interested, though, in what kind of pads the rest of the herd is buying and selling, at least in New York, you should go cruise around BlockShopper. It's a pretty no-frills site, featuring blurbs on recent real estate sales, pretty obviously compiled from whatever can be gleaned from a quick Google search. And there's a "lawyer" tag, so you don't have to bother wading through all the news on purchases made by talent executives or ASPCA employees.

Some recent transactions involving attorneys include a Seyfarth Shaw associate selling his condo on East 22nd Street for a cool $1.2 mil and the sale of an East Village condo by a tax partner in a Canadian firm to a former Baker & McKenzie associate.

So if you're testing the market, or just bored during this longer-than-necessary pre-Christmas week, enjoy.
