Stroock Expands CRE Practice With Addition of New Partner

May 24, 2019, 08:40 AM

Michael McCarthy, a real estate lending lawyer, has joined Stroock’s national Real Estate Group as a partner in New York — the third lateral partner added to the practice in 2019.

Michael primarily represents commercial lenders and borrowers in connection with mortgage and mezzanine financings secured by commercial real estate. In addition, Michael represents real estate clients in loan workouts, restructurings and foreclosures.  Further, Michael represents real estate clients in repurchase facilities, loan workouts, restructurings and foreclosures.

Michael’s addition continues the national Real Estate Group’s lateral growth in 2019. Commercial real estate lawyer Elsa Ben Shimon joined the firm in February, and trial advocate Jennifer Recine joined the Real Estate Litigation practice in March.

“Mike is a fantastic real estate finance lawyer and an ideal addition to our national Real Estate Group,” said Jeff Keitelman, Stroock’s co-managing partner. “We’re thrilled to continue to attract lawyers of Mike’s caliber and expertise.”

“I’m looking forward to becoming an integral part of the real estate team at Stroock,” Michael said. “It’s a group that’s long been well known for sophistication and skill, and I believe the firm will provide an ideal home for me to grow and expand my practice.”

Other recent additions to the team include litigation partner Joshua Sohn, who joined the firm last August, and REIT/real estate capital markets partner Evan Hudson, who joined the firm last May.
