Practices Areas

We are a mid-size firm that provides personal attention in handling any issue or dispute that affects the success or wellbeing of our clients’ businesses, employees or family members. We staff each matter appropriately with the right team to assure efficiency and a steady path to resolution.

Our practice is focused in three areas: Corporate M&A, Real Estate, and Litigation. Each group shares the same goals and commitments – to deliver counsel beyond expectations, and to protect our clients’ interests. We listen to understand, and we shoulder burdens and challenges as our own until we can resolve them efficiently and effectively.


We consider ourselves business partners with our clients, and we take that role very seriously. We work collaboratively to fully understand our clients’ businesses so that we can solve complex issues and advance their goals. Several members of our firm have owned businesses, or have worked as general counsels. They can relate to and understand the various challenges and opportunities created by competitive or complex environments.


We are deal makers and we work side-by-side with our clients to help them realize their visions and project success. We are agile and apply creative thinking, teamwork, and a strong resolve to deliver value to our clients and to help them meet their goals. Our team represents developers, institutional owners, and investors on local, national, and international projects in all asset classes.

Our litigators are experienced advocates, passionate about advancing and protecting the legal interests of our clients.
