Steven Herman Named a Real Estate Thought Leader

December 16, 2020

Real Estate Group partner Steven Herman received the 2020 “Go-To Thought Leader Award” for Real Estate from the National Law Review.


The awards, now in their third year, recognize 71 legal authors and legal organizations, as selected from the 20,000+ of pieces of content published this year. The honorees represent less than 1% of the publication’s 15,000 authors across a variety of legal specialties and in law practice management and operations.


Recognized authors “not only demonstrate impressive legal knowledge and business acumen, but write with an eye towards compliance or adaptation, and along with attracting high numbers of readers they are also frequently referenced in other media and academic journals,” the publication said.


Herman is a frequent writer of Cadwalader Clients & Friends Memos on a broad range of real estate topics and is also editor of the firm’s monthly REF News & Views newsletter.


He also recently created a two-part podcast on Real Estate Workouts and Restructurings, in cooperation with special counsel Loren Taub, as part of the firm’s LawWise podcast series. The episodes are available here and here.


Herman concentrates his practice in the areas of real estate finance, development, joint ventures, acquisitions, dispositions, commercial leasing, restructurings, workouts, and commercial mortgage securitizations. His work ranges from single- and multiple-asset negotiated and auction transactions to highly structured transactions that span all segments of the marketplace, including office, hotel, retail, multifamily, mixed-use healthcare, and industrial facilities. Herman's clients include investment banks, commercial banks, developers, investors, partners, lenders, owners, fund managers, borrowers, tenants, landlords, issuers and underwriters.
