Congratulations to Patrick L. Cusato for being selected to The Daily Record's 2024 Power 20 Real Estate Law list for the third year in a row. The Power 20 list showcases power players in the Western New York legal community who are recognized as leaders in their area of practice.

“The people on this list help clients navigate complex transaction processes to help fulfill their personal dreams or organizational goals. Their job has been made even more difficult over the past two years. At the same time as the COVID-19 pandemic was changing the way the entire real estate transaction process worked, the real estate market was getting turned on its head. These attorneys continued to serve their clients admirably while navigating new ways of doing business thanks to restrictions that limited or halted face-to-face meetings," stated Ben Jacobs, Associate Publisher and Editor of The Daily Record.

Pat focuses his practice on commercial and residential real estate, mortgage banking, and tax credit development and finance projects, and affordable housing transactions. In addition to serving as Underberg & Kessler’s Managing Partner, he serves as the Real Estate & Finance Practice Group Chair, a member of the Executive and 401K Committees, and is the Financial Management Partner for the Firm.

A strong proponent of being active in community and industry groups, Pat is an Executive Board member of the Mortgage Bankers Association, Executive Board member of the Bishop Sheen Ecumenical Housing Foundation, past President and past Chair of the Foundation's annual fundraising gala, and past Chair and current member of the Monroe County Bar Association Real Estate Section. He also serves as the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Lakefront Soccer Club and President of the Board of Directors of the Sports Association of Webster, Inc.

Pat has been recognized in the 2013-2024 editions of The Best Lawyers in America® for his work in Real Estate Law and he has also been selected as an Upstate New York Super Lawyers honoree from 2007-2010 and 2021-2023. He has been recognized by The Daily Record in the Power 20 in Real Estate Law list in 2022 and 2023, and he was the recipient of The Daily Record's Leaders in Law Award in 2018, honoring attorneys who have shown dedication to the legal profession and tireless commitment to the community. Pat is also a recipient of the 2009 Rochester Business Journal's "Forty Under 40" award.
