Washington, DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia

Samuelson Law focuses at the intersection of commercial real estate and bankruptcy. Consequently, it handles all aspects associated with those two practice areas – including negotiating financings, development/construction, leases, forming LLCs, and other transactions and handling litigation, including foreclosures, landlord/tenant, and bankruptcy filings and sales. It brings that all-around perspective to every transaction and case it handles. As such (a) we view transactions from the perspective of what defenses could be asserted and whether effective remedies are available, and at what cost, in the event of a breach; (b) we view litigation from the perspective of trying to structure, along the way, settlements that offer a “bigger pie” to everyone and, perhaps, even restore a prior relationship to everyone’s advantage; and (c) we view everything from the prospective of what is likely to happen if one of the parties declares, or is forced into, bankruptcy and, if so, how to structure a plan of reorganization or liquidation.

As a partner in larger law firms, Ken Samuelson has handled numerous large transactions and litigation and directed teams of junior partners and associates. However, now operating as a small law firm with a niche, Ken is able to consolidate those services for greater efficiency. As a result, Ken has received the highest possible rating by Martindale-Hubble for each of the past 20 years and the highest possible rating by AVVO for each of the past 8 years, has been selected for listing in Super Lawyers for each of the past 4 years, and was elected to the American College of Real Estate Lawyers. He has presented programs at the Harvard Business School Club of Washington, DC, the American Bar Association, the American College of Real Estate Lawyers, the DC Building Industry Association, and the American Inns of Court, and was a member of the governing Council of the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section of the American Bar Association.

By being admitted in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, as well as in New York, Ken is able to follow clients around and through the Capital Beltway and can handle the New York commercial law aspects of large financings and other transactions.
