Levenfeld Pearlstein is honored to announce that, for the 12th consecutive year, its Real Estate Group has been ranked in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business among the best law practices in Illinois. In addition to the practice group’s overall accolades, LP Real Estate partners David Berzon, Thomas Jaros and Brian Kozminski are each individually recognized.

In its review of LP’s Real Estate Group, Chambers observed that the team “possesses a fine reputation in the real estate market for its expertise in transactional work, advising owners, lenders and borrowers on acquisitions and dispositions, construction and leasing matters.” The publication also singles out the Group’s specialized “experience handling deals involving condominiums and manufactured housing communities.”

One of LP’s valued clients shared with Chambers that the Real Estate Group is a “highly experienced team that is efficient and affordable.” Another client offered the following praise: “It provides us with excellent service and its attorneys work very well with us. They are all experienced and provide valuable counsel along the way.” While yet another client commentator was “impressed with the firm’s teamwork and coordination,” and expressed confidence that “client service is in its culture.”

The observations gathered regarding LP’s individually-ranked attorneys included similar praise:

David Berzon: David has a broad background in the areas of commercial real estate sales and acquisitions, development, debt and equity financing, including joint ventures, leasing and work-outs.

David is praised in Chambers by his peers as “a smart, efficient and practical transactional real estate attorney.”

Thomas Jaros: Tom advises his clients on acquisitions and dispositions of all product types across the nation, including multi-family, office, industrial, retail and hotel.

Clients say Tom is “a great attorney; diligent, timely and always willing to put in the work to meet any deadlines without cutting corners.”

Brian Kozminski: Brian counsels developers and owners of office, senior housing, hotel, medical office, retail, multi-family, and industrial properties.

One client commentator remarked of Brian: “He’s very efficient and accurate at lease drafting,” adding: “He’s also great at negotiating and does it in a very successful way.”
