NEW YORK--()--Herrick, Feinstein LLP has been selected by The Republic of Turkey to represent it on all aspects of the development and construction of a new and expanded Turkish Center at 46th Street and 1st Avenue, across from the General Assembly of the United Nations.
“Being selected as part of this major project is an honor and a privilege, and Herrick’s Real Estate team is committed to helping the Republic of Turkey turn the vision for its new Turkish Center into a reality”
Turkish Consul General in New York, Hon. M. Levent Bilgen, said: “The Republic of Turkey has a long-standing relationship with Herrick, Feinstein. The firm’s renowned expertise in real estate, government relations and planning matters make it an invaluable part of the project team, and we look forward to working together on this significant undertaking.”
“Being selected as part of this major project is an honor and a privilege, and Herrick’s Real Estate team is committed to helping the Republic of Turkey turn the vision for its new Turkish Center into a reality,” said Real Estate Partner Jonathan Adelsberg, who will head Herrick’s team.
“During my time in office on both the city and federal levels, it was clear that the Turkish-American population in the New York region was growing rapidly and that Turkey was becoming a major center for business and commerce. The new Turkish Center will provide needed services to Turkish-Americans and will stand as a symbol of Turkey’s increasingly important stature as an emerging world leader,” said Michael E. McMahon, former U.S. Congressman and City Council member and Co-Chair of Herrick’s Government Relations Practice, who will be a key member of Herrick’s project team.
Senior Partner Lawrence M. Kaye, who has spearheaded the Turkish Practice Group at Herrick since its inception in the mid 1980’s, said: “Our firm has a long history of working with Turkey, and this is another important chapter in that relationship.”
Mr. Kaye also noted that Herrick recently strengthened its Turkish practice with the addition of Barbaros M. Karaahmet who is qualified to practice both in the United States and in Turkey. Mr. Karaahmet is helping expand the firm’s representation of the Turkish Government, and Herrick’s work with a growing number of Turkish companies doing business in the U.S., as well as U.S. companies investing in Turkey and the surrounding region.
