Goodwin Procter Tops CPE-MHN 2017 Law Firms Ranking

Other highly ranked firms include Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; Latham & Watkins

Commercial Property Executive and Multi-Housing News have released their ranking of the top real estate law firms for 2017. As the commercial real estate industry continues to adapt to new regulations impacting its business, having the right legal counsel is becoming increasingly vital for any transaction.

CPE and MHN evaluate law firms with substantial real estate divisions, many of them involved in the largest real estate transactions of 2016. While for some firms real estate represents only a portion of overall operations, several firms participating in our survey have dedicated real estate practices of more than 100 attorneys. Of all the firms in our ranking, the average real estate division included 77 dedicated real estate attorneys, and made up roughly 15 percent of the overall headcount of its firm.

Goodwin Procter LLP topped the list, with involvement in notable deals that included Mid-America Apartment Communities’ nearly $4 billion acquisition of Post Properties. The firm also increased its dedicated real estate staff by 17 percent and opened two new offices in 2016.

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; Latham & Watkins; Fried, Frank, Shriver, Harris & Jacobson; and DLA Piper rounded out the top five. To see the full rankings, view the 2017 Leading Real Estate Law Firms.
