“Legal sector tenants have honored us with this award for three years, providing a solid endorsement of our platform and the depth of our expertise,” said Sherry Cushman, Executive Managing Director and Leader of Cushman & Wakefield's Legal Sector Advisory Group (LSAG). “Our industry-leading understanding of today’s law firms has clearly proven valuable in helping our clients make strategic decisions.”
