Barry Rosenthal at Bingham McCutchen became interested in real estate while working for former Massachusetts Sen. Edward Brooke in the 1970s. “My first job was working for him on the Senate Housing Committee,” says Rosenthal, 54. “That led to a job with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for a year.” From HUD, Rosenthal moved into private practice with the old Brownstein Zeidman and Lore firm, where he practiced for 20 years, and for several years served as managing partner. The firm dissolved in 1996, about a year after Rosenthal had moved to the Washington office of Boston’s Bingham McCutchen, where he co-chairs the 70-lawyer real estate group. At Brownstein Zeidman, Rosenthal says, he got the opportunity to work on commercial real estate deals because so many of the firm’s lawyers specialized in franchising or government housing work. “I started off representing lenders,” he says, “and now I split my time between representing lenders and developers.” Among Rosenthal’s developer clients are the Paradigm Development Co. and the JBG Cos. His lender clients include Fleet Bank, the Residential Funding Corp., and Wells Fargo Bank, which he has represented in construction lending in Washington and other cities in the Northeast. “Barry brings a consistent and affable can-do attitude to every transaction,” says Stanley Sloter, president of Arlington-based Paradigm. “He’s just as comfortable with a land transaction as he is with negotiating an equity partnership,” says Sloter, who has been using Rosenthal as his primary counsel since the mid-1980s. Rosenthal recently helped Paradigm put together the land, zoning, and financing for an $85 million apartment building now under construction at Fifth Street and Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., near the Gallery Place Metro stop. For JBG, one of the area’s biggest developers, he recently helped with the land acquisition and construction financing for Potomac Center, a 13-story office building that JBG is building in two phases on the 500 block of 12th Street, N.W. He also represented JBG with the $50 million purchase of the Rosslyn Gateway office building in Rosslyn.
