Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC has bolstered its commercial real estate team with the addition of a veteran attorney.
Based in West Orange, the law firm announced that Philip A. Markowitz has joined its ranks as a member in its real estate, development and land use group. He brings more than 20 years of experience at the national, regional and local levels, with a practice that includes helping clients navigate complex development, investment and leasing matters across all real estate asset types, CSG said, and a particular emphasis on the retail, hospitality and industrial sectors.
The addition will allow Markowitz’s clients to draw from the firm’s full-service real estate platform and strengths in land use and zoning, redevelopment, litigation, tax appeals and liquor licensing. Meantime, he will supplement CSG’s capabilities in the areas of acquisitions, sales, financing and leasing.
