Within: Real estate

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is recommended for ‘large, complex transactions’ and is regularly engaged by REITs and investment funds such as SL Green Realty and Oaktree Capital. Co-chair Harris Freidus as well as Peter Fisch, Mitchell Berg and Salvatore Gogliormella were all active on behalf of NorthStar Realty Finance, including advising said client on its joint venture with Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III and the ensuing $1.12bn acquisition of Trilogy Investors. In another significant piece of work, Freidus represented CIM Group in the equity and debt financing of Jack London Square, an office/retail development in Oakland. Other names to note in the team are newly appointed chair emeritus Steven Simkin, who is for one client, ‘the best real estate lawyer in New York’, and Meredith Kane, who co-chairs the practice with Freidus. Kane’s caseload extends to acting for health system operators, including Northwell Health, as well as public corporations such as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which she is representing in a number of major New York projects, including One Vanderbilt and Hudson Yards. All named attorneys are based in New York.
