Russell B. Bershad, Co-Chair of the Gibbons Real Property & Environmental Department, has been named to the NJBIZ Real Estate Power 75, a list of the most powerful people in New Jersey real estate. Mr. Bershad appeared for the first time this year, ranking 55th on the list.
NJBIZ notes, “Russ Bershad is a newcomer to the list. But, according to one fan, he’s been in the mix for quite some time. ‘He was involved in the Roche deal, he represents David Barry in Jersey City. He’s doing a lot of good things there.’ Said another: ‘You know every detail is going to be pored over when you hire Russ.’ Said another: ‘If you’re going to add more lawyers to the list, and that’s a good idea, Russ is one of the people you need to have.’”
At Gibbons, Mr. Bershad leads the firm’s transactional real estate practice, which earned a national ranking in the most recent edition of U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers®. He is included among the top band of real estate attorneys in New Jersey by the Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and was recently listed by New Jersey Super Lawyers as the “Real Estate Lawyer of the Year” for the Newark region. He is also listed individually in Best Lawyers and is one of approximately 20 New Jersey attorneys elected for membership as a Fellow in the American College of Real Estate Lawyers.
