Wallack Somers & Haas, P.C., is a boutique law firm formed by Barry and Michael Wallack, George Somers, and Karl Haas in March 1999. Our practice is concentrated on serving the legal needs of the commercial real estate community.

Our firm is founded on the belief that the real estate community is looking for “big firm” legal expertise and experience in an entrepreneurial “small firm” setting. Our goal is to provide the highest quality real estate legal services at a fair price and without the delays, cost, and frustration of delegation.

Our three senior partners collectively have more than 75 years experience in serving real estate clients. Over the last 25 years, our partners have played a significant and often primary roll in the vast majority of the real estate projects that have shaped and formed Indianapolis. A representative sampling includes the redevelopments of the Glendale Mall, Murat Theater, and Naval Air Warfare Center; and the development of the Circle Center Mall; the Farm Bureau headquarters building; the Anthem administrative campus; the Verizon Music Center; the Brightpoint, Target, and Vanstar distribution facilities; University Place Hotel and Conference Center; the Pan Am Plaza complex; Conseco Fieldhouse; and the Capital Center and 300 North Meridian office buildings. In addition, our partners have represented office, retail, industrial, distribution, hotel, and multi-family developers on a local, regional, and national basis, as well as landlords, tenants, and major financial institutions, such as Aetna Life Insurance Company, ING Life Insurance Company, Allstate Life Insurance Company, KeyBank, and Fifth Third Bank.

Our collective range and depth of experience allows this firm to bring to every transaction a unique understanding of the issues from all sides of the table, thus eliminating unnecessary, time-consuming, and costly arguments and discussions. We know what is (and sometimes more importantly what is not) essential, possible, and productive in each real estate transaction.

Our goal is to be a can-do firm. We pride ourselves on providing prompt and cost-effective legal services. We focus on the client’s bottom line and business objectives.
