Who We Are
GERSON LAW FIRM APC is nationally acclaimed as a small but powerful law firm with gold standard recognition for expertise in all aspects of real estate, real estate finance, business and related litigation, including but not limited to loan recovery and loan loss mitigation. GLF’s mission with each engagement is to provide results, rapid responses, and reasonable fees. Though small, our reach is that of a national law firm.
GLF maintains a high profile in the financial services industry and provides a full range of services in the areas of loan originations and loan recovery, for some of the largest financial institutions, life insurance companies and private mortgage funds in the United States. Contributing to GLF’s national reputation is its understanding of government service enterprise (GSE) lending, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac multifamily lending programs. GLF acts as national counsel and/or regional counsel to its clients, and through its own expertise, as well as a national network of professionals, it has closed loans in most states, including Alaska and Hawaii.
GLF closed more than 850 commercial real estate loans in 2017. In 2018, GLF not only is continuing to serve its clients in traditional closings, but assisting in the creation of new loan programs for banks, credit unions and private funds.
Since its beginning in 1992, GLF has maintained a strong presence in assisting the financial services industry with loss mitigation and loan recovery strategies. It has been engaged in high volume engagements in foreclosure, receivership and bankruptcy litigation. GLF welcomes engagements for clients with multi-state loan portfolios, who prefer a small law firm with management capabilities for all their legal needs.
Non institutional clients are an integral part of GLF’s expansive real estate practice which includes closing purchase and sale transactions for all character property – land, lodging, industrial, retail, and multifamily. GLF’s real estate practice includes among its specialties representation of national tenants in leasing activities.
Expert legal and business advice is given in most general areas of business, particularly for newly organized companies. Litigation is included among services to all clients.
GLF is comprised of fifteen full time lawyers, contract lawyers and affiliates. In an age when some law firms are moving tasks off shore or to virtual solutions, GLF maintains a commitment to its community and country, and solutions based upon the richness of experience and broad overviews of its lawyers.
Gordon L. Gerson is recognized by US NEWS as among BEST LAWYERS IN AMERICA. Martindale-Hubbell has rated GLF “A-V Preeminent.
Creative billing is more than a buzz word at GLF. Unlike many law firms who talk about alternative billing arrangements (but, in fact, bill almost everything hourly), GLF has extensive experience in fixed fee, capped fee, limited scope and other alternative billing arrangements. GLF will also project fees whenever possible on the outset of its engagements, and will also provide budgets for both transactional and litigation matters.
