On Friday, March 7, Becker & Poliakoff officially announced that attorney Donna DiMaggio Berger was welcomed back to the firm’s Community Association Law Practice Group as a shareholder in Ft. Lauderdale.
Berger began her practice at Becker & Poliakoff in 1992 before joining the Broward County-based law firm of Katzman & Korr in 2007. In 2010, she became a named partner in that firm, where she created and managed the transactional practice for the renamed Katzman Garfinkel & Berger.
The law firm of Becker and Poliakoff has been on a restructuring and expansion spree lately, and recently completed a merger with Taylor & Carls in Orlando, Tampa, and Palm Coast. They have also hired prominent Community Association lawyers Jane Cornett in Stuart and Dave Ramsey and Jennifer Loheac in New Jersey, demonstrating Becker & Poliakoff’s continuing commitment to providing client communities with the best possible lawyers and professional staff to serve their legal needs.
"We take pride in having the largest dedicated team of Community Association lawyers in the country and complementary practices such as Construction, Litigation, Employment and Government law to help associations navigate the challenges and opportunities they face," stated a release from the firm.
No one in the association industry can argue that Donna Berger is an outstanding leader in the field of community association law. She has testified in the Florida Legislature and worked hand in hand with legislators and other policy makers to help create laws that benefit those living and working in common interest ownership communities. Her legal work in the state capital will continue in cooperation with CALL’s full time lobbyist.
Becker & Poliakoff is a diverse commercial law firm with more than 170 attorneys, lobbyists and other professionals in 20 domestic and international offices. The firm has eight primary areas of practice: Real Estate, Construction Law & Litigation, Community Association, Customs & International Trade, Business Litigation, Corporate & Securities, Government Law & Lobbying, and the Intellectual Property & Emerging Technologies practice.
The West Palm Beach HOA Examiner wishes Donna Berger luck in her new position, and hopes to continue working with her on important association issues for many years to come.
