Illustrating the national strength and growth of its Real Estate Division, Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli is pleased to announce Connect CRE, a news outlet covering national trends and transactions in commercial real estate, is honoring two of its Real Estate leaders through its second annual Lawyers in Real Estate Awards.

Polsinelli Real Estate Division Chair Eric G. Greenfield is being honored in the Chicago & Midwest region, and Polsinelli Real Estate Practice Chair Amy Kiefer Hansen is being recognized in the Phoenix & Southwest region. Connect CRE’s Lawyers in Real Estate Awards spotlight 10 attorneys in each region who have made an impact through both their practice in real estate-related matters and the contributions they have made as members of the industry and the community.

Greenfield focuses his practice on domestic and cross-border real estate transactions throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. He represents a wide range of clients, including developers, lenders, REITs, real estate funds, private equity firms, pension funds, and other institutional investors. Combining his diverse skill set with real-time real estate and private equity intelligence, Greenfield has successfully closed transactions across 9 countries, and 49 states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands as well as Puerto Rico. Greenfield has helped grow and develop the real estate practice substantially—a practice that has now almost tripled in size since his leadership began seven years ago.

Hansen focuses her career on assisting clients who are developing raw land or underutilized properties and transforming them into thriving locations. Her knowledge and experience in working on the front lines of development projects translates into valuable insight for both developer and lender clients. Hansen routinely represents clients with purchase and sale transactions, in multiple states in a variety of sectors, including office, industrial, healthcare, and retail. Since 2017, Hansen has assisted with all strategic planning, staffing, recruiting, marketing and associate development for the Real Estate practice group.

As Division Chair and Practice Chair, Greenfield and Hansen lead Polsinelli’s robust Real Estate Practice as it experiences solid growth across the nation. The Real Estate attorneys on their roster include some of the top real estate lawyers who provide practical solutions, as well as experience that cuts across all segments of the real estate industry. The firm has been involved in hospitality, industrial, office, retail, residential, mixed-use, medical office buildings, student and senior housing transactions in virtually every state in the country, and has developed teams focusing on emerging sub-markets such as healthcare, alternative energy, life sciences and data centers.

Under Greenfield and Hansen’s leadership, Polsinelli’s Real Estate Practice continues to achieve a National Tier One ranking in Real Estate Law by U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 “Best Law Firms” list.  In October, Polsinelli’s national Real Estate Practice was included in Legal 500’s prestigious 2021 rankings, along with the firm’s national Healthcare, Immigration and M&A: Middle Market practices. Additionally, Greenfield and Hansen were honored by Chambers USA, which ranks the top lawyers and law firms across the country.
