Kishner Miller Himes is a boutique law firm that focuses its practice on complex business litigation and real estate transactions. Our clients encompass all of the parties in the real estate world, including buyers and sellers, investors, lenders and borrowers, developers and sponsors, property management firms, and brokers. On the litigation side, we represent individuals, corporations, partnerships and other business entities in a diverse range of complicated disputes. Our attorneys have extensive experience in negotiating, structuring and documenting real estate transactions, and in trials, appeals and other stages of litigation at all levels of state and federal courts. We presently have eight lawyers, all of whom concentrate in real estate matters and litigation.
Our two practice areas are complementary, giving us unique perspectives that benefit all our clients. Our real estate clients benefit from our litigation expertise because we are well-versed in the danger points for deal-making, enabling us to help negotiate and structure transactions to avoid problems that often result in lawsuits. The firm’s litigation clients benefit because our deal experience makes us better able to understand complex transactions and written agreements, whether in corporate, real estate or other business settings, thereby enabling us to litigate business disputes effectively and efficiently. By focusing our practice on these two related areas, we are able to provide high-quality services at reasonable costs.
Our partners take a hands-on approach to each representation, being actively involved throughout the matter, while teaming with associates for additional support as appropriate. For every representation, we adapt our experience and skills in a matter-specific and cost-effective way. Our approach enables us to staff matters leanly and, first and foremost, assures that our clients receive the highest quality services. And we offer very competitive rates and flexible fee arrangements. We use cutting-edge technology to minimize costs and enhance productivity.
Our size is a particular plus. We have sufficient resources to handle complex and time-consuming matters effectively, and we can field a team where the matter warrants it. At the same time, our small firm culture makes us extremely cost conscious, and we avoid layers of lawyers. We are also practical lawyers who seek solutions to get the deal done or to avoid litigation.
Simply put, Kishner Miller Himes— being both big enough to handle complicated matters effectively and small enough to do so efficiently — provides the high quality of legal services necessary for clients to deal successfully with real estate transactions and complex business disputes.
