Cullen and Dykman Ranked First Among Leading Law Firms in Number of Commercial Real Estate Deals Closed for 2020

December 9, 2020

The Real Deal ranked Cullen and Dykman first in number of deals closed on its 2020 list of law firms that handled the highest number of deals and the highest dollar volume of New York commercial real estate debt deals. According to the article, Cullen and Dykman worked on the greatest number of debt deals between September, 2019 and September, 2020. The lists were published in The Real Deal on November 18, 2020, and their ranking took into account mortgage transactions of $1 million or more.

Managing Partner Christopher H. Palmer commented that, "even in a year faced with major challenges in the New York commercial real estate market in 2020, we were able to pull it off without a hitch, thanks to our many years of experience in handling significant commercial real estate debt deal transactions outside of New York, where the norm is closing by mail or remote closings. We were one of the leaders in getting the New York title industry to adapt to new procedures."

Jack Curran, senior partner in the firm's banking and financial services department also added that "clients also get a tremendous bang for their buck with our services. The reason why we overwhelmingly lead in the number of overall transactions is that we bring the most reasonable fee structure to lenders’ transactions with highly seasoned and experienced attorneys. Lenders know that, recognize and value our expertise and appreciate how efficiently we are able to service their needs."
