Attorney Brings Legal And Real Estate Experience To RBJ&P As Director Of National And International Accounts

BOSTON – November 16, 2011 – Richards Barry Joyce & Partners, LLC (RBJ), a full-service commercial real estate advisory firm, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dean Atkins as Director of National and International Accounts.  Previously an attorney in the Boston office of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., Mr. Atkins brings a unique blend of legal and real estate experience to the firm.

In his new role, Mr. Atkins will provide strategic advice to the firm’s corporate clients on leasing, sales and consulting projects in the Greater Boston area, as well as across the United States and internationally.  Prior to joining RBJ&P, Dean was an attorney on Mintz Levin’s Real Estate and Government Law sections.  He represented clients in commercial real estate transactions involving leasing, property management, acquisitions and dispositions, and permitting.  He completed and organized more than 1,500 transactions for landlord and tenant clients and managed and developed a comprehensive national leasing and asset management program for office and industrial properties for a multi-billion dollar REIT.

Dean graduated magna cum laude from Boston College Law School and holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and a Bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University, where he graduated magna cum laude and was elected a member of Phi Beta Kappa.  He is an active member on several boards and committees, including the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance, Families First, and the Concord Housing Development Corporation.

“While understandably recognized as a leader in the Greater Boston market, RBJ also has a very active, sophisticated national and international practice,” said Mr. Atkins.  “The firm is uniquely structured with its best-in-class strategy and open team structure to allow for the integration of a legal perspective.  I am looking forward to leveraging my experience to RBJ’s client/partner’s.”
