Commercial Real Estate Legends We Lost In 2015

Albert Quentel: Lawyer Who Helped Create Miami Lakes


Real estate attorney Albert Quentel, shareholder with the law firm of Greenberg Traurig Hoffman Lipoff Rosen & Quentel who had a hand in creating Miami Lakes, died at 80. In the early 1960s, he repped The Graham Cos, working with the Graham family on the development of 3,000 acres of their land that became the town of Miami Lakes in 1962. Other clients of his included Neiman Marcus at Bal Harbour Shops and Corporate Property Investors on its acquisition of Miami’s Southeast Financial Center and Town Center in Boca Raton. Albert was also known as “the dean of condominium lawyers” for his role in writing Florida’s first condo statute in 1963.
