KANSAS CITY/MINNEAPOLIS—Two Midwestern law firms with significant real estate practices have decided to merge and form one of the largest firms in the US. Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, Kansas City-based Stinson Morrison Hecker and Minneapolis-based Leonard, Street and Deinard will operate as Stinson Leonard Street LLP.

Both Stinson and Leonard Street have established real estate practices,” David Frantze, Stinson Morrison Hecker real estate division co-chair, tells GlobeSt.com. “For example, both rank among the top real estate practices in the Midwest, but also have national reach. Both have three members of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers – so to have six in one firm is extremely rare. When combined, there’s no question we’ll have a powerful real estate team that can deliver comprehensive legal services to clients ranging from developers and retail landlords to commercial tenants and REITs.”
