Lowenstein Sandler LLP has named seven new partners, including a member of its real estate practice group.
Daniel A. Suckerman, who boasts 15 years of experience, earns the new title after six years as counsel with the Roseland-based firm. The practice said he represents a range of clients in transactions such as acquisitions, leasing, financing, joint ventures and qualified Opportunity Zone developments, with a focus that is national in scope and crosses all asset classes.
Suckerman also has significant experience in commercial leasing, covering both landlord and tenant clients, in the office, retail and industrial sectors, according to a news release. Within the office sector, he has a particular focus on sophisticated leases in New York City.
“Dan has been an integral part of our real estate team for many years,” said Ted Hunter, chair of Lowenstein’s real estate practice group. “He has handled numerous headquarters leases, major acquisitions, financings and development transactions — all with equal skill and savvy. Dan always finds the way to get deals done, and we congratulate him on this tremendous accomplishment.”
The firm highlighted some of Suckerman’s recent matters, including:
- Representing a leading national developer in connection with the joint venture acquisition and development of a 40-story residential condominium on Manhattan’s Upper West Side
- Representing a nonprofit scientific research company that owns more than 250 acres of commercial property near Princeton in connection with the phased sale and redevelopment of the property for commercial and multifamily uses, including the build-to-suit construction and leaseback of an office building and a research and development facility
- Representing the landlord in connection with the lease of a “building within a building,” including private entrance and an elevator bank, totaling roughly 300,000 square feet, in Midtown Manhattan.
- Representing a specialty food distributor in connection with a more than $40 million acquisition and development of a warehouse distribution facility in a qualified Opportunity Zone in Philadelphia
Lowenstein’s national commercial real estate practice bridges a variety of sectors, including office, industrial, hospitality, hotels and gaming, multifamily, retail, self-storage, infrastructure, public-private partnerships and manufactured housing.
