Crain's 2019 Rising StarsCongratulations to our senior associate Alykhan Shivji who was selected for inclusion in Crain’s inaugural “Rising Stars in Real Estate” list. Crain’s, a leading New York business news source, honored a select group of young industry professionals who are making an impact in the New York City real estate community. Crain’s evaluated candidates on their professional achievements, philanthropic work and efforts to promote diversity and mentor others.

Crain’s acknowledged Aly’s recent high-profile representations, including negotiating a lease for an entire 17-story building in Midtown Manhattan on behalf of a coliving/coworking provider and advising a global asset manager in connection with its role in a $3.6 billion cross-border transaction.  The publication also recognized Aly’s pro bono practice and highlighted his commitment to assisting schools and nonprofits focused on providing equal access to education, including his continued representation of Storefront Academy, a tuition-free private school for low-income students in Harlem and the South Bronx.
