In Brian's Words:
"Here at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, I work with a phenomenal team of lawyers and support staff who focus on corporate and real estate matters, and it’s our job to shepherd our clients through routine transactions, extraordinary crises, and everything in between. Whether the client is a small local business or a large multinational corporation, it’s a remarkable privilege to help them get off the ground, make the leap from good to great, or stay on top of the leaderboard.
In our work, moreover, we often get to see the fruits of our labor, which makes it especially worthwhile. When it comes to real estate development, the results are local and tangible. You get to see the project you’ve lived and breathed for months or sometimes years manifest itself as a quick-service restaurant, a mixed-use development, an office complex, or some other fixture of public life where people live and work."
