The Editor interviews Jeffrey Hugh Newman, Partner, Sills Cummis & Gross P.C.
Editor: Please tell us about your background and practice.
Newman: I lead the real estate practice at Sills Cummis. I practice as a transactional lawyer, a litigator and a counselor, and my education credentials include a law degree and an LLM in taxation, both from NYU. I worked on Wall Street as a securities analyst before joining Sills Cummis in the seventies, initially practicing law in the corporate department and then transitioning to the real estate group, which I developed into a robust national practice recognized by Chambers USA both locally and nationally.
