Morrison Foerster

Counsel on 50 Hudson Yards, the Time Warner Building and Museum of Modern Art Tower

Launched a survey series for the industry on commercial real estate topics

Mark Edelstein is chair of Morrison Foerster’s Global Real Estate Group and co-chair of the Distressed Real Estate Group. In his work with the firm, he guides strategy and operations, and mentors other lawyers.

Based in New York, he has over three decades of experience representing leading financial institutions, real estate companies, owners, acquirers, sellers and investors in some of their most high-profile transactions. For instance, he served as counsel on 50 Hudson Yards, the new Time Warner Building, One Columbus Circle and the Museum of Modern Art Tower.

In June 2020, Edelstein launched a survey series for real estate industry participants on topics including COVID-19 and its effects on CRE, distressed real estate, politics impacting CRE, and office re-openings. This poll series (now in its 46th round) connected the industry, has been featured in the media and continues to provide recipients with a valuable glimpse into the evolving perspectives and predictions of those who keep a close eye on the industry and economy.

The National Law Journal named him Real Estate Trailblazer. He’s been listed in Chambers USA (New York: Real Estate Finance), The Legal 500 US (Real Estate Finance-Leading Lawyer) and as Real Estate Law’s Best Lawyers in America.  Law360 has also named him Real Estate MVP.

These are some of the reasons why we are honoring Mark Edelstein 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.
