Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I have been a little light in posting and in creating original content because I am trying to help close a small but fairly complicated deal (it is actually three separate closings). That should be my last major project for the year. I'm hopping around even too much to buy Christmas presents, though I hope to rectify that right now.

Year-end is often crazy for real estate lawyers. We are all trying to wrap up deals by tomorrow, which is nominally the last real business day of the year for many people. In the past we've worked right up until and through the end of the year. I'm told it used to be even worse many years ago (for tax reasons if I recall correctly).

There are exceptions. Because of Y2K concerns, deals in 1999 and to a lesser extent 2000 all had to be pretty much wrapped up by 12/15 or 12/20. Of course that ended up being a non-issue, but it sure was a nice break.

In case my posting slows down during the rush, Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2008!

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.
