Health Care Law

We retained the Polsinelli Health Care Law group on a complex matter regarding a management services agreement and related healthcare regulations. They were collaborative, responsive, and well-acquainted with the substantive law in the area. We eventually involved Polsinelli's commercial litigation team from Chicago, who provided equally excellent representation.

Polsinelli receives highest marks from Park Bridge Financial for the legal work they perform on Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS) trusts. They are subject matter experts on loan servicing and servicing agreements. They are deep in CRE lending, restructures and litigation. Polsinelli is particularly cost-effective versus money-centered law firms.

Real Estate Law

Polsinelli can handle anything we throw at them. They have a very deep real estate bench (spread across different offices but they work seamlessly together) and a good mix of highly experienced attorneys and paralegals which allows them to steer projects to the most appropriate and cost-effective team members. They are incredibly responsive. They anticipate issues and concerns, and I sleep better at night knowing they have my back. They are my go-to firm for real estate.

I have worked with Polsinelli since 1991 and have experienced nothing short of excellence. In our business we rub elbows with all the large national firms. I have used other firms that charge much more, will worse outcomes. Polsinelli personnel are not only our attorneys, but business counsel as well. Jim Polsinelli, Russ Welsh and Dan Flanigan are without a doubt some of the brightest more forward-thinking attorneys in the country.

The employee benefits lawyers at Polsinelli are just top-notch. They provide sound, practical guidance and are great at thinking of solutions to address complex benefits issues with their clients' business objectives in mind.

I cannot express how happy I am with their services!
