John Sumberg manages fast-growing firm, building team to 130 lawyers and handling his own complex realty cases
It wasn't a case of two ships passing in the night when John Sumberg met Brian Bilzin in Chicago in 1982. In fact, the two decided they wanted to work together, and years later they created the powerhouse legal firm Bilzin Sumberg. Since then, they have steered their business on a course for success and have grown their initial team of 11 lawyers to 130, many of whom have been named among the best in the nation.
Specializing in real estate, Mr. Sumberg has handled complicated cases and has been recognized as being among the best in his field throughout the nation.
And while the awards and accolades pay homage to his exceptional work, Mr. Sumberg is humble and gracious. He counts the fact that clients have remained with him for decades as one of the best rewards of his labor.
After splitting his time between
managing his firm, practicing law and working with the many charitable
organizations he supports, Mr. Sumberg enjoys being able to travel and read.
Reporter Laura Stace interviewed Mr. Sumberg at the offices of Bilzin Sumberg at 1450 Brickell Ave.
