It’s Time to Nominate Commercial Real Estate’s Outstanding Attorneys

End-of-day on Friday is the deadline to submit nominations for Connect CRE’s third annual Lawyers in Real Estate Awards. We believe there are many strong candidates that haven’t been represented yet, and we’re asking your help in finding them.  

The Lawyers in Real Estate Awards spotlight attorneys nationwide who have made an impact through both their practice in real estate-related matters and the contributions they have made as members of the industry and the community. We’re seeking 10 National honorees along with candidates from every region we cover with daily news: California, Texas, New York & Tri-State, Chicago & Midwest, Washington DC, Boston & New England, Atlanta & Southeast, Florida & Gulf Coast, Phoenix & Southwest, and Seattle & Pacific Northwest.    

Accordingly, we’re inviting industry members to nominate those whom they’d like to see included this year. Please take a few minutes to nominate one or more real estate attorneys through the link provided here.    

After considering your recommendations, we’ll choose this year’s honorees. We’ll begin announcing them in early December.    

The deadline for nominations is Friday, Oct. 28.
