November 24, 2014Press Releases

(Boston, Mass., November 24, 2014) – Goulston & Storrs, an Am Law 200 law firm with offices in Boston, New York, Washington, DC and Beijing, has been named one of America’s top ten real estate law firms in the annual Law360 practice group survey for Real Estate.

Law 360, which ranks firms on the national and international size and scope of the practice, noted that the firm “… is a smaller full-service firm than many of the BigLaw players that it shares the spotlight with on this list … set up for cross-border work with a Beijing base rounding out its three major U.S. offices in Boston, New York and Washington, D.C. What the firm may lack in sheer overall size, it makes up in depth.” The profile also notes the firm’s recent work on behalf of CBL & Associates Properties in a $1B joint venture with TIAA-CREF and its counsel to Federal Realty Investment Trust in a complex ownership deal for a Massachusetts mixed-use property.

Goulston & Storrs has one of the largest, most diverse and most highly acclaimed Real Estate practices in the United States. Listed as one of the best law firms in which to work in a survey of mid-level associates conducted by The American Lawyer, the firm is home to many nationally recognized attorneys, including members of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers. The practice has been top-tier ranked by Chambers USA for over a dozen consecutive years. Lawyers in the practice serve clients through decades of experience in real estate development, entity formation, tax planning, acquisition, finance, leasing and environmental law.

Clients include major regional and national developers, entrepreneurs, investment funds, REITS, property owners, and commercial tenants. Regional and national real estate lenders and investors consistently look to Goulston & Storrs as counsel for their sophisticated debt and equity real estate investments including the structuring of syndicated and capital market transactions.

Practice co-chairs David Abromowitz and Steven Schwartz were interviewed for the piece.
