Commercial real estate law practice includes but is not limited to everything from new construction to complex exchanges, from strip shopping centers with a few stores to modern regional shopping centers, from the small two or three unit office building to the large downtown and suburban office/residential condo developments, and the sale of any type of business property. While it appears there is room for thousands of attorneys to handle the major transactions described above, this is generally not the case. It is well known that the commercial real estate bar in most large metropolitan areas is a rather select group. Is there a place in this group for the young lawyer?
