14 US BUSINESS NEWS / OCTOBER 2017 , Baloyra Law is an ambitious and innovative boutique real property lawfirm, based in Florida. Jose Baloyra talks us through some of the services that the firmprovides, as well as discussing how it feels to be awarded Best Commercial Real Estate Transactions Law Firm – Coral Gables. Property Done Properly! Jose explains how the firm helps its clients and what other offerings it provides to clients. Covering a variety of bases, the practice does not focus purely on real estate, and helps to serve community associations in a variety of areas. “Here at Baloyra Law, we serve as counsel to banking and financial institutions, real estate investors and developers in the sale, financing, development and leasing of residential and commercial property as well as litigation matters concerning real property. We also serve as counsel to residential and commercial community associations in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Collier Counties.” “Initially, my own practice area was limited to real estate transactions, but has now expanded to include real estate litigation and community association matters. These areas of the law commonly intersect, and our clients appreciate our ability to work within these areas.” Being a successful law firm, it is always about the client for Baloyra Law. “Understanding the client’s business and expectations, are essential to our ability to integrate our skill set into the equation. The client must be able to understand what we are doing, why it’s necessary and how our services add value to the operation.” Client focus is one of the firm’s main values. Creating a successful practice has always been about staff working towards achieving the same mission and goals. Jose outlines the targets of the company, and how the law firm aims to reach these goals. “Fundamentally, it is our goal to be seen as a necessary partner in our client’s business, one that is trusted and relied upon to deliver timely, efficient and highly competent legal work. The keys to a long-standing attorney- client relationship, are the establishment of client trust and our ability to add value.” Interestingly, the law industry is constantly developing, and Jose explains how the team works hard to ensure it stays ahead of these advances. Being well-connected, Baloyra Law is able to develop and adapt along with the industry, sometimes ahead, constantly assessing its offerings and deciding how it can make them better. “For example, for our community association clients, we provide updates on all collection matters online at our website. The updates are derived directly from our case management software. Thus, clients are able to login online at their convenience to inquire about status.” “In addition, through our various affiliations and memberships, we stay apprised of new laws and regulations affecting our areas of practice. We are constantly evaluating our best practices and have evolved them over time to reflect the many changes that have transpired.” Ultimately, Baloyra Law is full of hard-working and forward- thinking personalities, all of whom add a lot to the firm. “Our staff is highly competent in their respective work areas. Also, we only hire highly self- motivated, positive people who care passionately about and take great pride in their work.” He signs off by detailing a future project that the practice is clearly enthused about. “Looking ahead, we are particularly excited about the Krym Hotel and Mercato, a hotel/ market project in the Wynwood area of Miami that we have been consulting on. We have worked with this particular client from the acquisition stage through to the design and construction phase.” 1702CA92
