Atlanta (December 2021) – Connect CRE, a daily news source of commercial real estate news, honored Matt Sours, who heads Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP’s real estate group, with its 2021 Lawyers in Real Estate Awards. Connect says its honorees include attorneys who have distinguished themselves in both their practice and the larger community. Sours is one of only 10 attorneys in Atlanta and the Southeast Connect recognized.

The profile on the Connect website noted that Sours became leader of the firm’s Commercial Real Estate Development & Finance Practice earlier this year, in addition to closing several large deals. Overall, the firm’s Real Estate group handled more than $20 billion in development and finance transactions over 12 months. 

It also described Sours’ commitment to community service. He is a devoted supporter of the Kyle Pease Foundation, which raises funds to improve the lives of athletes with disabilities. He also volunteers with CURE Childhood Cancer, an Atlanta-based nonprofit serving children and their families. Before the pandemic, he regularly served lunch at the Aflac Cancer Center at Scottish Rite Hospital as part of his involvement with CURE. He also volunteers for numerous firm-sponsored events, such as Mercy Care and Service Juris.

Sours was selected as the honoree of the firm’s 2020 Wells-Graham Award for Outstanding Service, which recognizes an individual who goes above and beyond to support the firm’s corporate social responsibility initiative, MMMPact, and the community. He also chaired MMMPact’s Diversity Initiative for several years.
