We are pleased to announce that effective March 15, 2017, Karen DaCosta Perzan joined Polsinelli’s Real Estate Services practice. Karen's full professional biography will be available shortly, and we welcome you to revisit this page soon to learn how her experience and the full-service Polsinelli platform can benefit your legal needs.

Polsinelli’s Real Estate attorneys recognize both the opportunities and challenges that real estate matters present to clients – nothing has such a lasting effect on a business while also constantly changing as real estate. Recognizing the challenges presented by this paradox, our attorneys focus on developing a deep understanding not only of the variables that come into play on real estate matters but also their implications on our clients’ businesses. From acquisition and financing through development and leasing, we know the problems to avoid and drive to solutions that get the deal closed.
