Bousquet Holstein PLLC is the successor to the law practice Green & Seifter Attorneys PLLC founded by Edward S. Green in 1961.
The law practice developed and became known in Central New York for its real estate development expertise, representation of clients in the medical community, and representation of entrepreneurs and closely-held business owners. The firm was also known for the private placements it conducted over nearly a thirty-year period.
Those projects included the Syracuse Telephone Company, a pioneering cellular telephone company formed in 1985 and sold to Southwestern Bell in 1994; the Presidential Plaza office and residential project; Northway Plaza, a shopping center in Queensbury, New York; the E. M. O’Donnell building, a sale leaseback commercial office building with Niagara Mohawk in Syracuse, New York; MONY Towers, a sale leaseback with the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York; the State Tower Building; Eagle Media, L.P., a group of newspapers in Central New York and the Capital District; and the $30 million renovation of the Marx Hotel and Conference Center in Syracuse, New York.
From the mid-1980s to present day the firm has experienced a consistent growth trajectory. The firm has grown as the breadth of our client base has expanded and as we have added highly qualified attorneys who have a long-term commitment to the firm. We have expanded our practice groups based on the expertise of our members and the needs of our clients.
In 2012 the firm changed its name to Bousquet Holstein PLLC, taking its name from Laurence G. Bousquet and David A. Holstein. David and Larry have served on the firm’s board of managers and have a combined tenure of more than 50 years with the firm and its predecessor. Each is a well‐respected attorney and community leader in the Central New York region. In 2019 Bousquet Holstein expanded its geographic and legal footprint by opening an office in Ithaca, New York.
