Press Release (ePRNews.com) - New York, NY - Feb 13, 2017 - Veteran real estate attorney Joshua Stein, sole principal of Joshua Stein PLLC, has been named among the 10 “most highly regarded” real estate attorneys in the United States. Mr. Stein’s recognition appeared in the 2016 edition of Who’s Who Legal Real Estate, a London-based guide to the global legal market.
The guide describes Mr. Stein as a “versatile performer,” praised for his “expert handling” of real estate financing, leases, development, and hotel transactions and acquisitions.
“This is particularly gratifying to my team and me for two reasons,” says Mr. Stein. “The list has only three New York City attorneys, and the other two put me in extremely good company. And I’m also one of only two designees in the list who is not at a large law firm.”
Mr. Stein established his law firm in 2010 after 20+ years as a partner at a global law firm. “It is very satisfying to have been able to handle some of the most substantial and interesting legal work I’ve ever worked on here at Joshua Stein PLLC,” he says. “The response from my clients and the larger marketplace has been terrific.”
Who’s Who Legal Real Estate has been identifying the foremost legal practitioners in business law through comprehensive, independent research since 1996.
“Nominees have been selected based upon comprehensive, independent survey work with both general counsel and private practice lawyers worldwide,” the publisher of the guide states on its website, www.whoswholegal.com. “Only specialists who have met independent international research criteria are listed.”
Who’s Who Legal Real Estate is far from being alone in recognizing Mr. Stein. For many years, Chambers USA has identified him as a leading New York City real estate attorney – the only one in that group not in a large firm. Super Lawyers magazine regularly recognizes him as one of the top 100 (and sometimes top 10) attorneys in New York City, across all practice areas. The New York State Bar Association Real Property Law Section awarded him its Professionalism award in 2011.
Mr. Stein is one of the most prolific writers on commercial real estate law and practice in the United States, having written 200+ articles on the subjects, as well as five books – Lender’s Guide to Structuring and Closing Commercial Mortgage Loans; A Guide to Ground Leases (With Forms And Checklists); A Practical Guide to Real Estate Practice; Stein on New York Commercial Mortgage Transactions; and A Guide to Troubled Commercial Real Estate Loans for Lenders and Borrowers. He is the general editor and primary author of the New York State Bar Association’s multivolume treatise on Commercial Leasing, the third edition of which will appear later this year.
Joshua Stein PLLC handles commercial real estate financing, leases (ground and space), development, hotel transactions, and acquisitions and sales. Its clients range from global banks to major developers to individuals acquiring LLC interests in small buildings or signing a lease for their first retail space.
