Service Difference

Goulston & Storrs is uniquely positioned to provide comprehensive, nationwide full-service assistance to those engaged in acquisitions and dispositions of properties. We have one of the most longstanding, diverse and reputable real estate practices in the country, coupled with a team of environmental, lending, regulatory, tax and trial lawyers that can tackle and solve every kind of problem associated with any transaction. 

Because of our experience, we understand even the most nuanced and idiosyncratic laws and regulations affecting real properties, especially in urban areas with unique regulatory frameworks, such as Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C.

Since we handle big-ticket and large-scale acquisitions and dispositions in many jurisdictions, we have a well-developed network of relevant consultants, environmental experts, professional specialists, government contacts and local counsel who can add value to our work for the benefit of our clients.

Our legal professionals are also keenly aware as well of the business context in which legal decisions must be made, and we make special efforts to understand the unique business and industry background of each client as it pertains to any assignment. That is why we have a reputation for deal making, and not deal-killing. We take a business-oriented approach to solving problems, armed with the requisite knowledge of related legal risks and opportunities.

Clients love that lawyers at our firm also place a cultural emphasis on individualized attention to every client matter, focusing on responsiveness, lean staffing, efficiency and results. Because of our low leverage business model, we often handle matters successfully with fewer lawyers than our opponents while remaining more accessible to our clients, making sure that a senior level lawyer is constantly interfacing with each client on every matter.  

We also know that clients are looking for creative win-win solutions whenever possible because they hope to continue doing business with all of the parties involved in a transaction. Clients can count on lawyers at our firm conducting themselves as civil, professional, ethical and effective advocates.

Finally, we understand and appreciate that a client is entrusting the value of their business to us in important legal matters, and we take that seriously. That is a big reason why the very structure of our firm is client-focused, providing incentives to work collaboratively and share information in order to support our clients to the fullest while discouraging any attitudes or behaviors that interfere with the rendering of superior client service.
