MIAMI, FL – Bilzin Sumberg is pleased to announce that legal publication Law360 has recognized the firm's Real Estate Practice Group for the second consecutive year as a "Top Practice Group of the Year." The group is one of only ten real estate practices in the country named as a result of their preeminent work in the sector.
"It is an honor to be recognized nationally as an industry leader for the second consecutive year. It speaks volumes to our attorney's dedication to their clients and the group's commitment to the greater community of which we are deeply ingrained," stated Real Estate Practice Group Leader, Suzanne Amaducci-Adams.
Bilzin Sumberg flourished by tapping into the in-demand South Florida real estate market and remains at the forefront of Miami's emergence as a global destination fueled by international investment. Now featuring Florida's largest real estate practice, the firm's Real Estate Group serves as a trusted advisor to a distinguished roster of clients from Fortune 500 companies to foreign and domestic businesses and entrepreneurs, in every sector of the real estate industry and in every stage of the real estate asset cycle.
Bilzin Sumberg's long history of engagement in Florida's sometimes volatile real estate market has helped the team devise creative and practical solutions that inspire their clients' confidence. As stated by Law360, "[Bilzin Sumberg] has a role in seemingly every major project across real estate sectors in its hometown, and the practice's reputation extends far beyond, with 14 of the 20 largest U.S. homebuilders and numerous foreign-based developers as clients and a major presence in the mortgage-backed securities field." Furthermore, over the past 18 months, the team has advised on more than $8 billion in transactions, creating a reputation as the go-to team for foreign and domestic owners, developers, investors, lenders, and servicers.
This is the third time that Bilzin Sumberg's Real Estate Practice Group has been recognized nationally, first receiving the "National Award for Excellence" by Chambers USA in 2007.
