Alan Feldstein named honoree of The Daily Record’s Power 20 Real Estate Law list for 2024.

The people on this list help clients — both individuals and companies — navigate complex transaction processes to help fulfill their personal dreams or organizational goals. Their job has been made even more difficult over the past three years. The COVID-19 pandemic, rising inflation and interest rates, and uncertain economic conditions have made the real estate industry even more difficult to navigate. These attorneys continued to serve their clients admirably while navigating new ways of doing business thanks to restrictions that limited or halted face-to-face meetings.

Partner, Chair of Real Estate Department, Boylan Code LLP

Years in current role: 24

What has been your biggest challenge over the past year?

Economic uncertainty, housing affordability, low inventory, and higher interest rates have all contributed to a slower residential real estate market this year. The higher interest rates have also impacted the commercial lending market and commercial transactions. Assisting clients to maneuver through these difficult times has certainly been challenging.

What are you most excited about for the coming year?

We have assembled an outstanding team of attorneys, paralegals, and administrative assistants in our Real Estate Department who are prepared and excited for the potential of increased volume as interest rates hopefully moderate over the coming year. It is a pleasure to be part of such a great team.

What is one thing you enjoy most about practicing law since the pandemic?

The prevalence of Zoom calls during the pandemic and post-pandemic period was not particularly satisfying. I am enjoying the in-person closings and the face-to-face contacts with clients without the necessity of masks, plastic partitions, and 6-foot distancing. So much can be accomplished in person than on Zoom calls.
