Atlanta, Georgia Commercial Real Estate Lawyers
Law Firm OverviewHartman Simons & Wood LLP is an Atlanta-based law firm with a reputation as one of the foremost law firms in the country which focuses exclusively on commercial real estate and the areas of the law which touch it. Our founding partners practiced together in a predecessor firm with many of the values, strengths and reach that Hartman Simons has today.
In 2002, those lawyers decided to break away from the bigger, general practice law firm concept and focus on what we know, what we do, and what our clients need: commercial real estate. The concept was simple: build a law firm around all of the levels and areas of expertise that clients need and expect when dealing with commercial real estate.
The result is a law firm with big firm experience and a national reach, yet one with the feel, and attention to detail, of the small law firm down the block. Our lawyers, our paralegals and our staff understand the demands, complications and pace of commercial real estate, and we are ready to show you how our collective experience will create a better client experience for you.
