We advise in every sector of the real estate industry and every stage of the real estate cycle. Over the past several years, the firm’s practice group has been recognized multiple times as a “Real Estate Group of the Year” by leading legal news publication Law360, an honor received by a select group of firms nationwide that stand out for preeminent work in the sector. We have also won numerous South Florida “Deal of the Year” awards from various industry publications, including Daily Business Review’s Real Estate Transactions award for both 2022 and 2023. 

Our lawyers work with clients in the purchase and sale of commercial and residential real estate, mixed-use, and transit oriented developments (among other asset types), construction and mezzanine financing projects, development and construction, leasing, and real estate-related loan sales and purchases. Bilzin Sumberg also possesses experience in specialized areas that are experiencing growth across Florida, such as condominium redevelopment, which often encompasses the complex process of terminating an existing condominium. We continue to build on our experience and have served as counsel in the acquisition or disposition of numerous real estate and debt portfolios, including numerous transactions valued in excess of $1 billion.
