Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Venable LLP, the Washington-based law firm, hired Peter G. Koffler, a partner at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, as the firm expands its New York real estate practice.
Koffler joined Venable’s New York office and will lead its real estate group, the firm said today in a statement.
“We are looking for him to add a new level of leadership to our growing New York profile, and we’re certain he’ll play a major role in the continued building of our real estate representation here as well as across the country,” Edmund M. O’Toole, the partner in charge of Venable’s New York office, said in the statement.
Koffler has advised on acquisitions, sales, financing, joint ventures, development and leasing, as well as power plant and energy projects and the redevelopment of polluted land, Venable said.
Venable, which advised CWCapital Asset Management LLC in the foreclosure on the Stuyvesant Town residential complex in New York City in 2010, was the 78th-largest grossing law firm in 2010, with revenue of $337.5 million, according to the American Lawyer, a trade magazine.
