    Corporate & Real Estate

    [/av_textblock] [/av_three_fourth][av_two_fifth] [av_textblock] Our corporate and real estate attorneys have many years of experience working together in analyzing and structuring complex commercial transactions and advising our clients on a variety of legal issues. Rather than addressing client needs through narrowly defined practice groups, we work collaboratively to offer high quality strategic advice that is both sophisticated and practical. We recognize that our role is not merely to identify relevant legal issues, but to understand our clients’ business and objectives so that we can provide effective guidance on a wide range of business decisions and transactions. We seek to develop lasting relationships with clients so that our judgment and advice is grounded in a deep understanding of our clients’ needs and long-term objectives. [/av_textblock] [/av_two_fifth][av_two_fifth] [av_textblock] Our practice spans the entire range of activities found in commercial ventures, for individuals as well as entities, both private and public. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing established businesses in large complex transactions as well as serving the needs of newly formed entities. Our services include business formation, planning, financing and restructuring, commercial real estate (including leasing), complex commercial transactions, intellectual property, corporate governance, private equity, securities, mergers and acquisitions, and nonprofit counseling. Given the variety of services we offer, our attorneys have, in effect, served as outside general counsel for some of our clients. As appropriate, we work closely with our litigation, labor and estate planning colleagues to ensure that we deliver effective and efficient service to our clients.

    "I have relied on Folger Levin attorneys for my own and my companies' most difficult challenges. While anyone can tell me what the law is, far more scarce are the qualities that characterize Folger Levin: judgment, a paramount focus on relationships, and fierce loyalty to clients."
