Polsinelli welcomes Scott B. Toban, who recently joined the firm’s Real Estate practice as a shareholder.

Toban is a veteran of the real estate industry, focused on offering strategic advice on transactions, joint ventures, regulatory and compliance matters, and brokerage policies and operations. In addition to his years of experience working with development, investment and financial institution clients, Toban has served for the last five years on the Illinois Real Estate Administration and Disciplinary Board, after being appointed by Gov. Pat Quinn, and Toban is a former Principal and general counsel for the Real Estate Institute, one of Illinois’ top providers of real estate and financial education to industry professionals.

Toban is enthusiastic about joining a growing firm that is bringing “new energy” to the practice of real estate law. “I liked what I was hearing about Polsinelli,” Toban says about his decision, “and, the more I learned and the more people I met, the more enthusiastic I became about joining this team. As anticipated, I’ve quickly found myself able to leverage my skills on behalf of a growing client base, and I’ve already become deeply integrated with a great group of colleagues who bring their own tremendous expertise to support those clients and their evolving businesses even more effectively.”

Toban joins the firm at an exciting time. This year, Polsinelli climbed to #86 in the AmLaw 100 and is one of the fastest growing law firms in the country. Polsinelli’s national Real Estate Practice is recognized with national Tier One rankings in Real Estate Law by U.S. News and World Report’s Best Law Firm and Best Lawyers 2015, and ranked as one of the Top 10 Largest Real Estate Practice Groups by Law360 in 2014.

“We are excited to have Scott as part of our national practice,” says Real Estate Practice Vice Chair Eric G. Greenfield, from his Chicago office. “He has a breadth of experience that gives him tremendous perspective on the entire real estate industry and where it’s headed, but he is also a person who works tirelessly on behalf of his clients. That’s just the right combination for our business-minded clients: a strategist who gets things done.”

Toban earned his law degree from the University of Chicago Law School and his B.S. from the University of Illinois-Champaign. In addition, he is a Certified Public Accountant and a licensed Illinois Real Estate Managing Broker.
