Expertise in negotiating large leasing transaction for landlords and tenants

Founding member of Fried Frank's Women in Real Estate Group

Jennifer Yashar was promoted to partner in Fried Frank’s Real Estate Department six years ago. She holds prominent leadership positions at Fried Frank’s New York City office, where she consistently mentors women associates, and serves as a role model in maintaining a work-life balance at a high pressure, prestigious law firm.

In her role, Yashar counsels clients on commercial real estate transactions, including landlord and tenant leasing, acquisitions, dispositions and joint ventures. She has particular expertise in negotiating the largest leasing transactions in New York City for both landlords and tenants.

She is a member of the firm’s Governance Committee, and was co-chair of the Coronavirus Task Force. Yashar joined the firm in 2005, and is the first homegrown woman in the Real Estate Department to have begun her career at Fried Frank and rise through the ranks to partner.

Yashar is a founding member of Fried Frank’s Women in Real Estate group and is a member of the New York Women Executives (WX) in Real Estate. She serves on the Board of Trustees at Temple Kehilath Jeshurun and is a former co-chair of the temple’s chapter of UJA of New York. She provides pro bono services to the Legal Aid Society of New York, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and The Coro New York Leadership Center.

These are some of the reasons why we are honoring Jennifer Yashar with Connect CRE’s 2022 New York Lawyers in Real Estate Award. The award celebrates real estate attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their practice and the larger community.
