Jason was the lead attorney who drafted and negotiated the legal and many of the business aspects of virtually all of Donald J. Trump’s significant real estate and non-real estate transactions during many of those twenty years. These transactions included luxury condominiums, office buildings, and hospitality matters (hotels, hotel condominiums, clubs, and golf courses), leases to operate government-owned assets, as well as the acquisition and repositioning of operating businesses, such as golf courses, hotels, and a winery and vineyard. Jason played a key role in negotiating Mr. Trump’s side of the transaction for the highly rated television show, The Apprentice.
