New York real estate law firm Rosenberg & Estis P.C. has named Michael E. Lefkowitz managing member.

Lefkowitz, who joined the firm in 1989 and who leads the firm’s transactional department with Richard L. Sussman and Eric S. Orenstein, has specialized in the representation of a wide variety of developers, owners, lenders and equity investors.

Lefkowitz succeeds Luise A. Barrack, who served in the role for 10 years and expanded the firm from 35 to 88 attorneys while broadening the firm’s scope of services.

“It is an honor to lead a firm that has such deep history in New York City real estate, and to follow Luise, who has further established Rosenberg & Estis as a powerful force for the industry,” Lefkowitz said. “Throughout its history the firm has led clients through periods of dramatic transformation, and we will continue to provide solutions during the current evolution.”
