A recent ranking by of full-service law firms across the country revealed that Polsinelli is now one of the top ten law firms with the largest number of real estate partners in the country.
While many other law firms reduced the size of their real estate groups during the recession, some firms such as Polsinelli focused on growth and attracting lateral real estate attorneys who were looking for national platforms on which to build their practices.
Polsinelli’s Phoenix office recently hired Dustin Jones, a zoning and land use attorney who represents developers in obtaining land use permits in complex commercial real estate deals. Jones, who works out of both the firm’s Phoenix and New York offices, also serves as a full-time faculty member in Cornell University’s Department of City and Regional Planning where he is a senior lecturer on zoning and complex land use issues. Jones’ hire added to Polsinelli’s continued efforts to expand its national prominence and local dominance.
