Real Estate Partner Douglas B. Heitner Named Law360 “Rising Star”

Partner Douglas B. Heitner has been named by Law360 as a 2013 “Rising Star” in the real estate practice area. Doug was the youngest of six attorneys nationwide selected in the real estate practice area, and one of only 112 attorneys nationwide selected for inclusion in the prestigious Law360 listing. Law360 received nearly 1,000 “Rising Star” submissions covering 24 practice areas for nominees under the age of 40. Recipients were selected based on the strength of their legal accomplishments in major litigation cases and transactions deemed significant for their age. 

In addition to this recognition, Doug was also recently recognized as a 2012 “Leading Lawyer” in The Legal 500, an outlet that provides comprehensive worldwide coverage on legal service providers. 

Doug’s success reflects the significant accomplishments of Kasowitz’s Transactional Real Estate Practice group since its inception in June 2011. The group’s attorneys handled many of the most significant real estate deals in Manhattan in 2012 in the areas of private equity investments, finance and leasing. In addition, the group has undergone significant growth, quadrupling in size in less than two years. The Real Estate Group continues to serve an expanding list of preeminent clients working on leading projects in New York City and throughout the country.
