Akerman Senterfitt LLP has announced that the 21 lawyers and consultants of Stadtmauer Bailkin LLP, a New York-based law firm specializing in economic development incentives, zoning/land use, and real estate, have joined Akerman's New York office, more than doubling its presence in that market.

Founded in 1976 by David Stadtmauer and Michael Bailkin, Stadtmauer Bailkin was responsible for pioneering many of the types of incentive programs in general use today. The firm has become the premier Economic Development Incentives practice in the New York metropolitan area, and in conjunction with Stadtmauer Bailkin Economic Development Group (SB-EDGe), it also provides economic development and land use/zoning services on a national basis.

These new team members will be invaluable to clients facing complex issues and further expand Akerman Senterfitt's leadership in the real estate industry. With more than 120 lawyers and consultants, the firm's Real Estate practice group represents clients in a wide range of real estate matters.
