Levenfeld Pearlstein, LLC (LP) is pleased to announce that Blake E. Schulman has joined the firm as a partner in its Real Estate Group. Schulman, who represents institutional investors and developers in acquisitions and dispositions, financings, joint ventures, leasing, construction, and commercial real estate development, joins the firm from Miller Canfield, where he was a principal in the firm’s Real Estate practice.
Schulman, 37, has extensive experience representing clients across a broad range of asset classes, including mixed-use developments, office properties, manufactured housing communities, industrial buildings, shopping centers, hotels, timeshares, and residential buildings such as apartments, condominiums and student housing.
Among his most prominent matters, Schulman represented a real estate fund in the spin-out and roll-up of more than 20 companies holding nearly two million square feet of rentable office space, leading to the initial public offering of the common stock of a REIT on the New York Stock Exchange. He has also handled more than $750 million of commercial mortgage financing and more than $750 million in real estate acquisitions and dispositions throughout the U.S., including dozens of REO property dispositions for multiple financial institutions.
“Blake is an outstanding attorney who has earned universal praise from his clients and other professionals with whom he has worked—indicative of his strong commitment to client service that has always been a hallmark of LP’s culture,” said Keith A. Ross, head of the firm’s Real Estate Group. “In addition, Blake’s broad-based real estate practice, and his experience handling his clients’ most significant and complex real estate transactions make him an ideal fit for our group.”
Schulman earned his B.B.A. from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business, and his J.D. from University of Michigan Law School.
