Steven L. Lisker, founding partner of prominent real estate law boutique Lisker, Page & Gibson, PLLC, and his colleagues Bart J. Page and James S. Gibson have joined the global real estate practice at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey L.L.P.
“Real estate remains a key component in the economies of Arizona and the Southwest, despite the recession’s lingering impact. Industry leaders are already developing market strategies to make the most of the recovery,” said Michael D. Saad, real estate practice group head. “We’re very pleased to add these well-respected lawyers to our Southwest real estate practice and our practice globally.”
John M. Welch, Phoenix office managing partner, said Lisker, Page and Gibson have strong reputations for providing sophisticated legal counsel to a diverse client base that includes local, regional and national homebuilders, residential and commercial developers, real estate funds and real estate lenders in Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. Lisker is a partner with Squire Sanders; Page and Gibson are of counsel.
“We have first-hand experience with the high-caliber work these lawyers do, as many of us have worked with them on past client matters or while with other law firms,” Welch said.
Real estate clients throughout the Southwest and California will benefit from having access to Squire Sanders experience in bankruptcy and restructuring, corporate transactions, litigation and tax, Lisker said.
“The firm’s ‘one-firm’ approach and global reach are among the reasons we’re pleased to be a part of Squire Sanders,” Lisker said.
