”Working with Goodwin Procter is like having a close and trusted friend involved in our work who understands our interests, as a client, but who also is skilled in the art of negotiation and compromise in order to close the deal. They have helped us with the acquisition and transfer of key properties to park and open space agencies for current and future generations to enjoy.”

Gordon Clark, Director, Program Development, POST

“Doing pro bono work for POST is ideal – it’s not only a direct application of my real estate transactional experience, but a means to help the Bay Area as a whole, and remain true to my ‘roots’ and my Master’s in environmental policy. And the POST team is great to work with too – skilled, diligent and dedicated to their mission.”
