BOSTON, MA, July 13, 2009 – Jones Lang LaSalle, the leading financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate, has moved higher in two important industry rankings. Engineering News-Record’s 2009 Top 400 Contractors list places the company’s Construction team at #289 nationally, well up from #359 in 2008.
