The Real Estate Group at Thompson Coburn continues to hold a top spot in the annual Midwest Real Estate News “Best of the Best” survey. Ranked as third in the 2015 survey, the group has earned a reputation of excellence that has kept it in the top rankings during the past five years.
During 2014, the Real Estate Group provided legal services involving commercial properties from California to Virginia, with many interesting and complex transactions in between. With offices on both the East and the West coasts, as well as in Chicago and St. Louis, the Real Estate Group continues to expand its national footprint for the benefit of clients across the country.
During 2014, real estate attorneys in the various Thompson Coburn offices completed over 1,514 transactions valued at more than $1.9 billion. More than 39 transactions were valued at $15 million or more, including the group’s two largest deals of 2014, a $212 million sale of a data center facility in suburban Chicago and a $65 million New Markets Tax Credit transaction for a project in Nevada.
The group continues to expand its practice areas, Capital Markets, New Markets and other tax incentives; land use/zoning; tax assessment appeals; multi-family; senior housing; NNN sale/leasebacks; and data center projects. With the strengthening commercial real estate market, client representation in the traditional real estate areas of transactional, lending, construction and development remain strong.
