New York, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP received the 2013 Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Real Estate at the Chambers and Partners USA Awards Thursday, May 23, 2013 in New York City. The firm also received the award in 2010, and is one of only two firms to win the USA Excellence in Real Estate award twice.
According to Chambers and Partners, publisher of the annual Chambers USA Guide, these awards spotlight firms and individuals who have "excelled above all others in the US legal market over the last 12 months." Additionally, they are based on research conducted for the 2013 Chambers USA Guide and reflect a law firm's recent achievements, which may include, for example, significant new matters handled during the past twelve months, expansion into a particular practice area, or the recruitment of high-profile partners.
“We are thrilled that our Real Estate Practice group received this noteworthy recognition,” said Robert Ivanhoe, chair of the firm’s Real Estate Practice. “Our team of dedicated attorneys works hard every day to meet client needs in this ever-changing market. This award is a true reflection of our team efforts.”
“Exceptional client service is a hallmark of our practice and we look forward to continuing this standard of excellence,” said Corey E. Light, co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate Practice.
