Next Generation Honoree: Kramer Levin’s Seth Niedermayer is a Connector
Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel’s Seth Niedermayer is a results-oriented and driven real estate attorney who advises a wide range of clients on some of the highest profile real estate developments in New York City and nationwide. Early in his legal career, he worked as a leveraged finance attorney for private equity firms and large investment banks on non-real estate transactions. While the work was meaningful, Seth desired a broader range of work so he pivoted to real estate finance as a practice. He now works on a broad spectrum of real estate transactions, ranging from acquisitions and sales to lending, borrowing and financing transactions.
That’s just one of the reasons we chose Niedermayer to be one of the New York 2019 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Niedermayer is described as a true connector. Beyond the legal work that he does for his clients, he also routinely seeks out ways that his clients can generate new business opportunities. He has developed a knack for analyzing and identifying potential relationships between both his clients and his many contacts in the business.
Others may have practiced in the field for longer. But, Niedermayer’s mindset more closely resembles that of a seasoned CRE lawyer who brings years of acquired wisdom to his work.
