Mr. Glazer was inspired to enter the legal industry by his father. His father, a CPA, specialized in tax law and always wanted to attend law school, but was unable to due to economic reasons.

Mr. Glazer focuses principally on structuring and implementing tax-oriented commercial transactions of all types, including real estate and venture capital transactions, mergers and acquisitions, pension investments in real estate involving issues of unrelated business taxable income, leveraged financings, and workout and debt restructurings.
Mr. Glazer has been a frequent panelist on tax panels at NAREIT’s annual law and accounting conferences, as well as at other conferences. He is always open to new opportunities that arise within the industry. For example, he is presently advising the first ever public REIT focused on the gaming industry in structuring its acquisitions.
