Q: How has the pandemic galvanized Selzer Gurvitch?
A: The pandemic was a catalyst for adapting our 39-year-old firm for the future. Since 1982, we’ve been a respected boutique law firm focused on commercial real estate, financing and business transactions, estates, trusts and tax planning. In 2019, we committed to a four-year plan to grow our firm, broaden our practice areas and establish leadership succession to ensure that we continue serving our existing clients and future generations of clients, while preserving our culture and maintaining our longstanding roots in the community.
During the past two years, we’ve added many attorneys with well-established specialized practices in land use, HOA/condo associations, construction and real estate tax appeals—all new practice areas for the firm—as well as adding additional attorneys to our existing practices in estates and trusts, real estate and business transactions and litigation.
Q: What does your recent growth mean for clients?
A: The additional practice areas provide a wider range of capabilities. We gained incredible expertise from our new colleagues, who provide a deep knowledge and robust practices in land-use, HOA/condo associations, construction and real estate tax appeals. The attorneys joining our long-existing practices have provided new insights and strengthened our expertise in these practices. The addition of talented attorneys enhances our acumen with respect to the business issues our clients face and our ability to provide holistic business and legal counsel. This is empowered by our firm’s collaborative, open-door culture, which has always been a part of Selzer Gurvitch.
