From the September issue: Just about everyone in the New York City real estate industry knows — or at least think they know — about the city’s priciest deals.

However, far fewer are aware of which lawyers put those deals together.

This month, The Real Deal pulled all of the publicly available data for the priciest financings and building sales citywide, from July 2014 to June 2015, and then matched that info with the recorded law firm on the deal. (While these deals often employ a slew of attorneys, only the lenders’ and sellers’ attorneys that were publicly recorded were given credit here.) [more]
