CHICAGO The law firm of Levenfeld Pearlstein LLC is pleased to announce that its Real Estate & Finance Practice Group has been named as “the number one real estate practice in the Midwest” for 2007 by Midwest Real Estate News magazine. The ranking was announced in the publication’s May “Best of the Best” issue. Midwest Real Estate News is the region’s premier commercial real estate magazine, distributed to more than 18,000 commercial real estate professionals across the Midwest each month.

Levenfeld Pearlstein’s Real Estate & Finance Practice Group ranked first in the survey, which polled more than 300 firms on the number of real estate transactions each firm had completed in the last year, as well as their related dollar values. Levenfeld Pearlstein completed 1,077 transactions in 2006, with 176 of those deals valued at more than $15 million each.

“We are honored to be ranked as the Midwest’s number one ranked real estate practice,” said Brian Kozminski, head of Levenfeld Pearlstein’s Real Estate & Finance Practice Group. “Our partners are dedicated to providing the highest levels of client service on every transaction, and to be recognized in this manner is very gratifying.”

Levenfeld Pearlstein’s Real Estate & Finance Practice Group provides clients with a broad range of legal proficiency, experience and practical knowledge in all facets of commercial real estate transactions. It represents a wide range of clients throughout the United States who are involved in development, construction, investment, debt and equity financing, leasing and specialized tax and ownership structuring of industrial facilities, hotels, golf courses, manufactured housing communities, retail shopping centers, complex condominium projects, and multifamily housing (rental and for-sale).

Earlier this year, Levenfeld Pearlstein served as legal counsel to Waterton Associates LLC, a Chicago-based real estate investment and advisory firm, and its affiliates, on their acquisition of Presidential Towers. The acquisition is believed to be one of the largest single-property real estate transactions in Chicago history.
