Lincoln Property Company (“Lincoln”), a global, full-service real estate firm, today announced the appointment of Michael Bernstein as Managing Director to lead Lincoln’s Special Situations and Lender Advisory team. Mr. Bernstein will oversee lender advisory services, working with commercial property lenders to develop strategies for reclaimed real estate assets and nonperforming loans. He is based in Lincoln’s New York City office.

“With a record amount of property loans coming due this year, we anticipate a wave of distress hitting the market, causing many lenders to repossess assets unexpectedly,” said David Binswanger, co-Chief Executive Officer at Lincoln. “Under Mr. Bernstein’s leadership, Lincoln continues to deepen our advisory services, providing clients with solutions to efficiently manage reclaimed assets and customize business plans that generate value in complex circumstances.”

Mr. Bernstein joins Lincoln with more than 25 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry. Most recently, he served as Managing Director at real estate investment firm The Seyon Group, where he was responsible for sourcing, structuring and providing asset management strategies for investments in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions. He previously held positions with Artemis Real Estate Partners, Brickman and Hines from which he developed an expertise in leasing, asset management, structuring joint ventures and modifying debt. Over his tenure in the commercial real estate space, Mr. Bernstein has overseen $3.5 billion in real estate transactions.

“I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Lincoln throughout my career and have come to know the firm’s unique approach to providing bespoke real estate solutions that deliver optimal results for clients,” said Mr. Bernstein. “As the company continues to grow and expand its client offerings, I look forward to leveraging its full suite of capabilities to provide lenders and owners of distressed assets with the strategies to successfully navigate unexpected real estate challenges.”
