In Lawyerly Lairs, the ATL feature that takes you inside the luxurious homes of legal luminaries, we focus a lot on New York City. We’ve previously peeked inside the residences of Schulte partner Rick Presutti, ex-S&C associate Aaron Charney, Cravath partner John Beerbower, Columbia law profs Hans Smit and Sarah Cleveland, and lawyer-turned-TV-personality Greta Van Susteren (to name a few).
Our obsession with Gotham isn’t surprising, since NYC is one of the nation’s biggest and most expensive legal markets. But today, to mix it up a bit, we take you down south, to another town where real estate is an obsession: MIAMI.
Miami real estate has taken a tumble lately. But that hasn’t stopped one top lawyer from wheeling and dealing. From the Daily Business Review:
A prominent attorney has sold one waterfront estate and bought another along the Venetian Causeway linking Miami and Miami Beach.
Dale Hightower, founder and managing partner of Hightower & Partners, and his wife, Anna, sold their San Marino Island property on Biscayne Bay for $6.9 million.
El Popular publisher Marco Laureti and his wife, Giovanna, bought the 5,982-square-foot bayfront Mediterranean-style estate at 205 E. San Marino Drive (at right).
