Socrates Xanthopoulos is a partner at KI Legal in the Real Estate Transactions Department. He represents a diverse group of clients including owners, developers, institutional lenders, family offices,  asset/investment/property management firms, principal investing firms, closely held companies and individuals — in complex real estate and business transactions at all levels of the capital stack, and involving properties across all real estate asset classes throughout the nation. 

Socrates regularly advises, counsels, and represents his clients in a broad range of transactional activities, including the origination and closing of mortgage, mezzanine and construction loans related to multi-family, mixed-use, condominium, office, hotel, residential and retail properties.  

As of recent, Socrates represented a commercial lender in connection with the closing of (i) a $1,800,000.00 mortgage loan secured by a first-position lien on a commercial property located in Palisades Park, NJ, and (ii) a $750,000.00 revolving line of credit secured by a second-position mortgage line on the same commercial property. 

This past year, Socrates won Top Real Estate Attorney at the 2022 Real Estate Development Awards due to his dynamic and successful career thus far in NYC’s real estate and construction communities and has been selected by Thomson Reuters® as a New York Super Lawyer Rising Star. In addition, he is member of the Hellenic Lawyers Association where he shares his passion for law and the pride of this Hellenic heritage with like-minded legal professionals.
