New York Real Estate Journal recently interviewed Olshan Real Estate partner Thomas Kearns in an article entitled “2019 Year in Review.” “2019 brought together an unusual amalgam of philanthropic and professional ‘giving back’ opportunities,” Mr. Kearns notes. “I led the Olshan delegation to the Legal Action Center’s benefit this year. I was part of the Olshan seminar for Chinese lawyers on U.S. law, hopefully making an impact on personal and business relationships between our countries.” Some other professional accomplishments include creating and chairing an in-house CLE seminar on the law of corporate responsibility and Mr. Kearns’s election to the board of the New York Landmarks Conservancy as well as serving as the Conservancy’s board designee on the Historic Properties Fund. Of notable transactions in 2019, he comments, “I was honored to be retained as lead counsel on a $120 million refinance of a portfolio of ground leased Manhattan office buildings.” “New York,” Mr. Kearns optimistically predicts of 2020, “will continue to be a center for U.S. and global business and will continue to flourish through the inevitable economic ups and downs.”
