Bonnie Neuman and Holly Chamberlain Named Law360 MVPs; London RE Team Recognized

Real Estate Finance practice head Bonnie Neuman and partner Holly Chamberlain were recently named Law360 MVPs − Bonnie for “Hospitality” and Holly for “Real Estate.”  

In addition, our London team recently received recognition in the 2023 edition of The Legal 500 United Kingdom.

In her Hospitality MVP profile, Bonnie, who is based in New York, discussed her lead role since last year advising clients on the financing of large multi-billion-dollar hospitality portfolios, including representing the lenders in a $1.5 billion acquisition financing for CorePoint Lodging as well as the lenders in a $1.2 billion acquisition financing of more than 100 WoodSpring Suites properties. Bonnie also shared her expert macro view of market conditions, reflecting on pandemic-driven disruption and more recent trends. She said: “While we continue to be very busy and have closed many financings of large hospitality portfolios, it has been interesting to deal with different outside factors in the market, whether it’s rising interest rates, the changing geopolitical environment, inflation or announcements in the media that require a change in the deal structure.” You can read Bonnie’s profile here.

In her Real Estate MVP profile, Holly, who is based in Charlotte, discusses her “career-defining” work advising the lenders on the $3 billion refinancing for One Vanderbilt – a new skyscraper and one of the tallest buildings in New York that incorporated critical environmental considerations. The profile also looked at Holly’s other recent notable lending transactions involving major NYC commercial properties, what she enjoys about being a real estate finance attorney and her very astute advice for earlier-career attorneys.

This annual awards program from Law360, one of the legal industry’s most respected publications, recognizes attorneys who have “distinguished themselves from their peers by securing hard-earned successes in high-stakes litigation, complex global matters and record-breaking deals.”

And in London, our team recently received recognition in the 2023 edition of The Legal 500 United Kingdom in the “Property Finance” category, as did partner Duncan Hubbard and associate William Lo.
