Andrew Berman Authors Sixth Edition of Friedman on Leases


Orrick partner Andrew Berman has authored the sixth edition of Friedman on Leases, one of the most highly acclaimed and trusted guides to commercial leasing. The multi-volume treatise, published by the Practicing Law Institute (PLI), is cited by courts and practitioners as the last word on leasing matters. This new edition – the first in more than a decade – contains critical analysis of the most current developments in the leasing field and provides the essential nuts and bolts for drafting and negotiating leases and related documents.

The Law Institute describes the new edition as “a trusted treatise” that “continues to deliver the foundational knowledge required by novice practitioners, as well as analysis and insight into the most current developments in the commercial real estate field facing seasoned practitioners.”

Based in our New York office, Andrew focuses on real estate sales and acquisitions, equity investments and financings, development and construction projects, and commercial leasing. From 2002 to 2014, Andrew served as a professor at New York Law School, where he founded and directed both the Center for Real Estate Studies and its Institute for In-House Counsel. He is also a Fellow at both the American College of Real Estate Lawyers and the American College of Mortgage Attorneys.
