Andy Herz received the 2016 New York Bar Association’s Real Property Law Section Professionalism Award for his “exceptional contributions of time and talent to New York real estate lawyers.” The award identifies a person “possessing an outstanding level of competence, legal ability and achievement; a continuing civility and appreciation for others in his/her practice; a person who has engaged in mentoring of younger attorneys and who has been involved in Bar activities both on a state and local level.”

Based substantially on his background with workouts, financing and real estate operation, Andy has three times been named a receiver in commercial property foreclosures; one of which required him to complete construction of a Manhattan office building and another of which placed him in charge of a 288 room Manhattan hotel with a restaurant. The value of all of these properties increased during his receiverships. Earlier in his career, Andy was the General Counsel of the New York State Mortgage Loan Enforcement and Administration Corporation, the workout arm of New York’s Urban Development Corporation, which handled its defaulted $1.2 billion mortgage portfolio.

Andy has held leadership positions in numerous professional organizations, having served as chair of the Leasing Committee of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers; co-chair of the Office Leasing Committee and the Real Estate Asset Management Committee of the American Bar Association; and chair of the New York State Bar Association's Commercial Leasing Committee.

Andy has participated in seminars on workouts, commercial leasing, loan restructurings and mortgage financing for numerous industry groups, including New York University Real Estate Institute, the Real Estate Board of New York, the Practising Law Institute, the International Council of Shopping Centers, the New York Law Journal, The National Association of Corporate Real Estate Executives and the Harvard Business School Real Estate Club. He served as a contributing editor to the New York Bar Association's text, Commercial Leasing, published in 2017.
