One of the most successful real estate attorneys in the Valley has struck out on his own, launching his own firm today — Gottlieb Law.
Benjamin Gottlieb, formerly a partner at MacQueen & Gottlieb, has formed his own boutique real estate firm, which will continue to handle real estate and commercial litigation, real estate transactions, business law, estate planning, probate law and administration.
Gottlieb, 37, has racked up an impressive list of accomplishments during his 12-year career, a sampling of which includes:
• Selected to the Southwest Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for the past six years, a designation given to no more than 2.5 percent of the attorneys in any practice area;
• Named to the Top 100 Lawyers in Arizona list (2020-2022);
• AZ Big Media’s Arizona Business Leaders list (2020-2022);
• Arizona Business Magazine’s People to Know in Commercial Real Estate (2021);
• Best Lawyers List (2022).
Prior to forming his own firm, Gottlieb and Patrick MacQueen had partnered for six years and developed the top-ranked real estate firm in Arizona for the past four years.
The partners decided this year to form their own law firms.
“I’ve enjoyed the challenge and hard work that comes with working at a top tier real estate firm,” Gottlieb said. “The big trials, the complex real estate transactions, the appellate cases with everything on the line – that’s what gets my juices flowing. I look forward to continuing to provide clients with top-tier legal services on real estate matters. The great thing about the law is no matter how long you’ve been practicing, there is always room to learn more.”
Gottlieb said his firm will continue its focus on building close relationships with its clients and delivering superior legal solutions and outcomes to clients. The firm will take a collaborative, results-oriented approach. Technology will also be part of the mix, as will bringing on superior talent.
“We will continue to use state of the art technology to help solve legal problems faster,” Gottlieb said. “And by combining legal talent that has decades of successful experience in the law with its high-caliber collaborative approach and top-of-the-line technology, Gottlieb Law will continue to deliver superior legal services and outcomes for its clients.”
Gottlieb is not interested in becoming the next white shoe firm in a downtown high rise. He said he looks forward to working with people he enjoys, which creates a desirable work atmosphere.
“The law is a serious field, there are always a lot of moving parts,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun at the office. We will continue to celebrate our victories, while consistently analyzing ways to improve and become even better attorneys in the real estate space. I’m confident that this commitment, combined with focusing on staying abreast of real estate law developments, will enable the firm to remain a top-tier real estate firm for years to come.”
