We may have just as many Oscars nominations as Jennifer Lopez (#JusticeforJLo), but the awards season continues here. Our Principals and Co-Founders just nabbed a top spot in the first City and State NY Political PR Power 50! Congrats Valerie Berlin and Jonathan Rosen.
“BerlinRosen is known for its long-standing ties to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, but its reach extends far beyond Gracie Mansion. Its real estate clients are reshaping the city skyline, from Larry Silverstein’s 3 World Trade Center to SL Green’s One Vanderbilt to Two Trees Management’s River Street Project at Domino Park. Its growing tech practice includes Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs and Cornell Tech. In the nonprofit space, it spotlights foster care issues for the Fair Futures Campaign, helped Coalition for the Homeless prod the city to set aside more affordable housing units for the homeless, and is assisting the launch of the $3 billion Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. The Democratic takeover in the state Senate – where Valerie Berlin and Jonathan Rosen both worked before launching their firm in 2005 – has ushered in a new era in Albany that aligns with the duo’s progressive politics. The firm also reps MGM Resorts, which hopes to convert Yonkers’ Empire City Casino to a full-fledged casino, and Drug Policy Alliance in its push to legalize recreational marijuana. It also handles political candidates, including stepping in to assist Queens district attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán in a hotly contested recount. BerlinRosen, which now has 182 staffers, also has offices in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.”
