I’m a huge baseball fan and love the Boston Red Sox. I have a life-long goal to visit all major league ballparks, and I’ve been to 15 so far. I hope Dodger Stadium will be my next stop.

Detailed Practice Description

Gregory R. Philipp’s law practice is focused in commercial real estate transactional matters including acquisitions and dispositions, leasing, real property secured financing and title and escrow work.

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t want to practice law. I told friends in elementary school and wrote an essay in ninth grade that I wanted to be a lawyer, and I’m proud that I’ve been able to fulfill that goal.

I started my real estate law practice when the economy was at its worst. That was challenging, but I also saw how a number of our clients got really good deals on property. Several clients I was working with weathered the storm and I helped them do deals that were counter to the prevailing economic winds.
