Davis & Gilbert’s Robert A. Karin Named to the BTI Client Service All-Star List for Second Year

New York, NY, February 5, 2014 – The BTI Consulting Group, Inc. (BTI), the leading provider of strategic market research to law firms, has named Real Estate partner Robert A. Karin to its 2014 Client Service All-Stars list for the second year in a row. The list represents an elite group of attorneys – identified solely through unprompted client feedback – who excel in client service by predicting clients’ needs and linking legal expertise with practical advice.

With over 25 years of experience, Mr. Karin represents a broad array of businesses in the buying, selling, developing, leasing and financing of real property throughout the United States. His representation includes several major banks and asset-based lenders, national retailers, regional developers, and landlords of office, commercial, loft, mixed-use and hotel properties. A significant portion of his practice is devoted to negotiating and structuring acquisitions of retail and commercial properties and retail and office leases. Mr. Karin’s tenant work includes representation of McDonald’s Corporation, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Boston Market, the Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Uniqlo, Panera Bread, Pret A Manger and many other prominent retailers, as well as UBS Financial Services and its affiliates and Bank of America. Among owners and developers, he represents The Feil Organization, Basser Kaufman, Metropolitan Realty Group and Wharton Realty Group.

The 330 attorneys in the 2014 BTI Client Service All-Stars list were selected based on individual interviews with over 300 corporate counsel – from large fortune 1000 companies – who were asked to identify attorneys who demonstrate superior client service. Interviewees were asked to rate attorneys in six targeted areas: client focus, exceptional understanding of the clients’ business, innovative thought leadership, outsized value, legal skills, and outstanding results.
