Rosenberg Martin Greenberg proudly announces that the firm and six of its partners – Benjamin Rosenberg, Barry Greenberg, Gerard Martin, Stanley Fine, Cynthia Spell, and Gerard Gaeng – have been ranked in the 2017 edition of Chambers USA as among Maryland’s leading lawyers in the areas of commercial litigation, white-collar crime & government investigations, real estate and land use in Maryland. Chambers USA is an authoritative reference to the reputations and qualifications of leading business lawyers throughout the USA.
Chambers states the following in its Maryland rankings:
“Benjamin Rosenberg is described as ‘truly one of the iconic commercial litigators in Baltimore.’ He maintains an impressive reputation for his handling of disputes such as breach of contract claims and antitrust litigation, as well as serving as an arbitrator and mediator.”
“Practice head Barry Greenberg draws high praise as an ‘exceptional practitioner.’ He advises clients on all stages of real estate projects, including representing developers and owners on property sales, joint ventures and refinancing. Clients value his market expertise, describing him as a ‘great source of knowledge.’”
“Gerard Martin comes highly recommended as a ‘very clever litigator’ whose commercial experience is bolstered by his expertise as ‘one of the most respected white-collar attorneys in town.’ Clients particularly praise his ‘very down-to-earth approach.’”
“Stanley Fine comes highly recommended for his land use practice, which is informed by longstanding involvement in some of Maryland’s most high-profile developments. Interviewees confirm his preeminent position at the Bar, noting: ‘If I had a really hard land use question, I would go to him.’”
“Cynthia Spell is a ‘very good lawyer and very good technician,’ according to impressed sources. She regularly advises developers on high-value real estate transactions, including sales, financing and leasing.
“Gerard Gaeng has a broad civil practice that includes real estate disputes, financial services litigation and construction claims. Clients note that he is ‘always extremely prepared and takes the time to understand our business very well.’”
Chambers commends Rosenberg Martin Greenberg’s litigation group as a “highly regarded team with experience advising on tax, employment and creditors’ rights disputes, including major class actions. Acts for clients in a range of industries, including transportation, real estate and finance. Broad litigation capabilities extend to white-collar criminal defense and insurance coverage disputes.
One impressed interviewee states: ‘What I like about them is that they are small enough to provide customized service without a lot of bureaucracy, but big enough to have the diversity of practice areas that means I can use them for just about anything I need.’ Also, according to one client, the firm ‘absolutely provides value for money: it has big-firm experience but with a local-firm price tag.’”
Chambers also speaks highly of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg’s real estate group, affirming that the firm is a “commercial and transactional real estate team with experience acting for developers, owners, title companies and investors at a regional and national level. Broad practice includes financing, acquisitions and easement matters. Also well known for its land use practice.”
