Biography

Robert Sorin is a real estate partner resident in Fried Frank's New York office.  He joined the Firm as a partner in 1997.

Education:
Georgetown University Law Center, JD 1982, Cum laude
Washington University, BA 1979, Magna cum laude

Personal:
Married to Helen Sorin

Background:
Mr. Sorin's practice covers a broad range of commercial real estate transactions, including the sale and acquisition of office, hotel and retail properties, commercial mortgage and mezzanine financing, construction financing, leasing, the development of office, residential, hotel and mixed-use projects, loan sales, joint ventures and debt restructurings.

Having begun the practice of law in 1983, Mr. Sorin has experienced several up and down market cycles over his more than 25-year legal career.  During the positive periods, he has been lead counsel on some of the most high-profile real estate transactions of their respective times.  For example, he represented Macklowe Properties in the US$6.4b acquisition of the Manhattan portfolio of Equity Office Properties from The Blackstone Group, the largest single-transaction price ever paid for a private acquisition of real estate.  He represented the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in the sale of the New York Coliseum to a joint venture between the Related Companies and Time Warner, successfully completing the sale after several previous efforts to do so had failed.  He also represented Macklowe Properties in the sale of the General Motors Building in New York City to Boston Properties for US$2.8b, the largest price ever paid for the purchase of a single building in US history.
