Global law firm McDermott Will & Emery has expanded its real estate finance capabilities with the arrival of a team from DLA Piper, led by Jeffrey Steiner. The group, which also includes Scott Weinberg, Dino Fazlibegu and Robert Unger, will be based in the firm’s New York office, with Steiner joining as global leader of McDermott’s real estate finance practice.
Steiner served in a similar capacity at DLA Piper. He has extensive experience representing Wall Street investment banks, institutional lenders and alternative capital providers in transactions involving fixed- and floating-rate financings, mezzanine loans, preferred equity, construction lending and CMBS deals.
“Real estate finance is an important component of our corporate platform, and adding Jeffrey and his team will do even more to deepen and extend the services we offer to our global institutional clients,” said McDermott chair Ira Coleman.
