New York, NY – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that the firm’s Real Estate practice was recognized as one of Law360’s 2013 Practice Groups of the Year, which honors firms that stand out for their preeminent work in the sector. Law360 noted that the practice is a “trusted presence in the world of real estate” and “has proven that they are in the game for the long haul and can be relied upon in any economic climate.” The firm’s Employment and Life Sciences practices were also selected as Practice Groups of the Year.
A related profile article in Law360 noted Paul Hastings’ advised clients on “some of the country's largest land acquisitions and development deals” and “guided clients through several major purchases in cities around the U.S. over the last 12 months.” The article mentioned several transactions that the practice worked on including the $80 million acquisition of downtown Los Angeles land for Mack Urban and AECOM, the largest acquisition in the city's central business district since the recession; the largest New York development purchase in the third quarter for Fisher Brothers; the largest redevelopment projects in San Francisco since WWII for Lennar Corporation affiliates and their partners; and Korean Airlines’ landmark Wilshire Grand redevelopment project in downtown Los Angeles. The piece also highlighted the practice’s work for Starwood Capital Group, L.P. on nearly 300 hotel properties throughout the U.S. for over $2 billion.
The article also mentioned that the firm continues to expand globally, noting the recent addition of David Ryland, partner, in the firm’s London office.
Law360 selected its winners based on the significance of the deals worked on, the size and complexity of the deals worked on, and the number of significant, large or complex deals the group worked on.
