Honigman’s Richard J. Burstein named to real estate hall of fame
Richard J. Burstein, a real estate partner at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP, has been named to the 2015 Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame by Midwest Real Estate News. The Hall of Fame members were chosen from more than 500 Midwest commercial real estate professionals who were nominated for the depth of their experience and their contributions to the profession. Burstein is one of only four attorneys among the 95 professionals named this year. The vast majority are brokers and developers.
Burstein, who has more than 45 years of legal experience, represents national and regional commercial real estate developers and tenants throughout the United States. He advises clients on transactions, investments and the development of regional and community shopping centers, office complexes and industrial parks, urban redevelopment projects, multifamily residential developments and the structuring and creation of real estate investment trusts (REITs). He represents clients in complicated projects that often involve the negotiation and documentation of joint business ventures, combinations of public and private partnerships, and the cooperation of large numbers of participants, sometimes in distant parts of the country.
A well-regarded attorney ranking publication, Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business, has recognized Burstein as a top attorney since 2005 and recently stated “Richard Burstein is a real estate veteran with more than 45 years in the field and figures prominently in the area of retail, with strong expertise in shopping center properties." In addition, he has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America since 1995 and Michigan Super Lawyers since 2007. Burstein has been named in Who’s Who of International Business Lawyers and Who’s Who of International Real Estate Lawyers. He also is a member of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers.
Burstein earned a J.D. from Wayne State University Law School and a B.A. in economics from the University of Michigan.
