Morrison & Foerster has been named Law Firm of the Year in this year’s Real Estate Capital USA Awards. The awards spotlight lenders, borrowers, advisers, and deals that best represented the U.S. real estate debt market in 2021. Real Estate Capital USA is published by PEI Media, which is also the publisher of PERE.
In 2020, Law360 also recognized the group as a Real Estate Practice Group of the Year for its work on some of the most significant and complex deals of the year. In addition, Global Real Estate Group Chair Mark Edelstein and U.S. Real Estate Co-Chair Jeff Temple were recently recognized as Top Authors in JD Supra’s Readers’ Choice Awards (a recognition given to only the top 0.4% of authors).
Morrison & Foerster’s Asia Real Estate team, which consists of more than 40 lawyers advising clients on real estate-related matters across Asia, with an aggregate deal value in excess of $38 billion in 2021 alone, was also recently shortlisted for the 2021 Global PERE Awards for Asia Law Firm of the Year.
In an era in which the real estate industry has become increasingly global and oriented toward capital markets, Morrison & Foerster is able to provide clients with exceptional legal representation, notwithstanding the location, size, staffing needs, or time constraints of any transaction. Consistently ranked by Chambers and Partners, as well as The Legal 500, the Real Estate Group is called upon to lead complex equity investments, financings, restructurings, recapitalizations, asset acquisitions and dispositions, joint ventures, and leasing and asset management matters.
