Near North Title Acquires Lawyers Advantage Title Group 

June 11, 2020

In a move to compliment current operations in Florida, Chicago-based Near North Title Group announced the acquisition of Lawyers Advantage Title Group.

The alliance combines the infrastructure and capabilities of Near North’s platform to compliment Lawyers Advantage’s experience in the Florida market.

“This investment represents an important strategic opportunity to offer turnkey title and escrow services to our clients throughout the state of Florida,” said Daniel Fowler, chief executive officer of Near North Title. “With one attorney at Near North for every 10 employees, we will retain the essence of the Lawyers Advantage name.”

Jon and Kay Sandler founded Lawyers Advantage in 1989. The company’s staff enjoys a longstanding relationship with institutional clients including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, Department of Housing and Urban Development and Habitat for Humanity Orlando. Their expertise will enhance Near North’s ability to service its national clients. Ownership of Lawyers Advantage included real estate attorney Alan Sandler, who will assume the role of vice president of Florida operations as he manages the offices throughout the state.

“Leveraging Near North’s expansive platform of nationwide title and escrow services enables us to increase our size and scope to extend value to customers in the form of technology, infrastructure and thought leadership,” Sandler said. “Our employees and the clients they serve will continue to benefit from the legacy of Lawyers Advantage while gaining access to increased opportunities at Near North.”

Sandler will be joined by Regional Account Executive Pilar Bermejo, who will service the south Florida market. The two existing Florida locations add to Near North’s 20 Midwest offices and will operate in the Orlando and Miami area under the Near North brand.
