Kerry Johnson named a New York Law Journal Rising Star

DLA Piper is pleased to announce that the judges and editors of the New York Law Journal's 2017 Professional Excellence Awards named Kerry Johnson to their list of Rising Stars. The award recognizes 30 of the region's most promising lawyers under the age of 40 for influence in their practice areas in New York and beyond.

In its recognition of Johnson, a partner in the Real Estate Finance practice, the New York Law Journal also noted her work helping to advance women attorneys in her field and her pro bono work serving first responders.

Johnson's practice concentrates on securities offerings, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance matters and general corporate law. Her primary focus is the real estate industry, particularly exchange-listed real estate investment trusts (REITs) and their underwriters.
