Stuart Saft is a real estate lawyer and chair of real estate at Holland & Knight, an international law firm in New York. His expertise includes development, financing, leasing condominium conversion, and other areas of real estate finance. He is known for his representation of major New York real estate developers and also represents major lending institutions working with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in mortgage lending. Apart from his legal work, Saft is a writer, penning articles for Globestreet.com and The Mann Report, and has written a number of books on real estate including The Real Estate Investors Survival Guide. He joined Holland & Knight in 2013 after resigning as global head of Dewey & LeBoeuf.

Saft has represented some of New York Citys most prominent real estate developers, such as Barry Sternlichts Starwood Capital in their development of the Baccarat luxury hotel. He has represented developer HFZ at their East 51 Street Halcyon condominium project, Swig Equities at the Sheffield, the Feil Organization at the Apthorp, and the Moinian Group at the W Downtown Hotel and Residences. Additionally, Saft has represented prominent financial institutions like Deutsche Bank.

He holds a JD from Columbia University Law School.
