Miami, FL – Bilzin Sumberg is pleased to announce Real Estate Partner Martin A. Schwartz has been selected as the firm’s 2022 Mentor of the Year, in recognition for his outstanding commitment to training, coaching, and mentoring junior attorneys at the firm.

A decades-long veteran of South Florida’s real estate industry, Marty has counseled owners and developers on the deals that have shaped the region’s skylines into what they are today. Given his long track record of working on some of the most important developments in South Florida, in addition to numerous complex condominium redevelopment matters, Marty offers a wealth of wisdom and industry insight to junior attorneys, as well as the intricacies of negotiations, client management, business imperatives, and written and verbalized advocacy. 

“Marty was a natural choice for Bilzin Sumberg’s Mentor of the Year Award because of his unrivaled dedication in nurturing the professional skills of our younger attorneys,” said Bilzin Sumberg Managing Partner Albert E. Dotson, Jr., “His generosity in time and effort serves as an inspiring example to all the other seasoned partners at the firm.”

The 2022 Mentor of the Year Award constitutes the firm’s inaugural mentorship award, which was conceived to strengthen the emphasis that the firm places on mentorship activities, and more generally, to recognize the vital role that mentorship plays in preparing attorneys for improving client service and furthering professional development beyond the academic training received at law schools.
