Bernheim is a partner in the Firm's Westport office. His practice focuses on real estate, zoning, land use and litigation matters relating to real estate.
“It was a privilege to be among this year’s 40 Under 40 class. I was certainly in good company,” Bernheim said. “I consider myself fortunate to have a rewarding career as an attorney with Halloran & Sage. The clients that I am privileged to represent contribute to the economic health and well being of Fairfield County, which is where I also enjoy contributing to the betterment of the community and where my family is proud to call home.”
Criteria for award selection include extraordinary leadership qualities, ongoing commitment to personal and professional development, and outstanding accomplishments.
Bernheim’s professional accomplishments are numerous. He is counsel to one of the country’s fastest growing restaurant groups handling their nationwide commercial lease matters, special counsel to the City of Norwalk in the GGP mall development project and trusted by many to handle their residential real estate closings.
His accolades also include being named to the New England and Connecticut Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists for the past three consecutive years, a 2014 member of the Connecticut Law Tribune New Leaders in the Law, treasurer of the Planning and Zoning Section of the Connecticut Bar Association, and developer and moderator of the 2017 Fairfield County Commercial Real Estate Outlook.
In the community, Bernheim has helped raise awareness and funds for the non-profit, Friends of Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (Friends). He publicized the need for pediatric MRI goggles, which resulted in the organization providing a grant for the $45,000 project. Additionally, he’s serving as a committee member for the Friends 2017 gala fundraising event, which will provide funding for the hospital’s NICU expansion.
