NEW YORK – May 29, 2018 – For the second consecutive year, and fourth time overall, global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP received the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Real Estate at the Chambers and Partners USA Awards, Thursday, May 24, 2018, in New York City.
“Fifty years ago we were founded as a real estate firm and have continued to grow in this area, intentionally and strategically. Now at more than 400 lawyers in our practice, it is not just about our size or numbers – it’s the ability to meet our clients’ needs today and the agility to take them into the future. The magnitude of the deals our clients trust us with speak for themselves, and this award from Chambers reinforces our reputation as go-to real estate attorneys,” said Real Estate Co-Chair Robert J. Ivanhoe.
The real estate team, now 400 strong, also received the award in 2017, 2013, and 2010, and has been nominated for the award every year since 2007.
“The network we have built has given our practice the unique position to take our clients full-cycle. Our team is not working in silos or handling deals in one office, we are a team that harnesses our nationwide platform, utilizing our full network for our clients to accomplish their goals,” said Real Estate Co-Chair Corey E. Light.
Ranked nationwide Band 1 in the 2018 Chambers USA Guide, the publisher recognizes Greenberg Traurig’s real estate team as a “powerhouse with unmatched coverage nationwide. Advises across the full spectrum of real estate, including acquisitions and dispositions as well as development-related matters.”
“Receiving this award for the second consecutive year highlights what we are accomplishing as a team. Year after year our team continues to provide outstanding work, handling landmark deals and providing excellent client service,” said Real Estate Practice Co-Chair Richard J. Giusto.
Chambers and Partners, the UK-based publisher of legal guides worldwide, bases the awards on research they conducted for the 2018 edition of the USA Guide. The guide, released May 3, recognizes 160-plus Greenberg Traurig attorneys across the United States.
