Morris Manning & Martin, LLP

MMM Adds to Real Estate Team in Atlanta


Atlanta (Dec. 19,2016) – Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP is adding depth to its national commercial real estate practice. Robert Rearden joins the firm as a Real Estate partner. He was previously with the boutique law firm Sheley, Hall & Williams, PC and prior to that King & Spalding, LLP.

Rearden’s practice focuses on the representation of owners and developers in connection with the acquisition, sale and financing of real estate assets, the representation of investors in structuring real estate equity investments, joint ventures and fund formation. In addition, Rearden has significant public finance experience and has represented companies, underwriters and other financial institutions in connection with municipal bond transactions for the development of both public and private projects.

“We are always looking for top-tier partners who fit well with our personality. Robert is well-respected and liked by all,” suggested Louise M. Wells, Managing Partner. “We would be hard-pressed to find a better fit. Robert already represents some clients with whom we shared strong relationships. He brings us new clients and solid skill-set. We are very pleased he has joined us.”

Beyond real estate, Rearden is very involved with a few excellent charitable organizations – Youth Villages, a national organization serving emotionally and troubled children, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Georgia. Both organizations fit well with MMM’s award winning community involvement program known as MMMPact.

“Timing is everything in life. I was approached by MMM to join the firm. The firm has a great reputation and a great capacity to handle diverse deals across the U.S.,” offered Rearden. “Joining MMM will benefit my clients and allow me to broaden my practice.”
