Seyfarth Shaw adds 15 attorneys to expanding NYC practice.

Seyfarth Shaw LLP will become the new professional home of 15 lawyers from Mandel Resnik Kaiser Moskowitz & Greenstein. They will officially join the firm in January 2006.

The attorneys, whose areas of specialty include real estate, corporate law and litigation, will join forces with Seyfarth Shaw's expanding New York presence in accomplished real estate, tax, corporate law, labor and employment law and litigation.

"The addition of this outstanding group is a major step in our strategy to expand the depth of our practices, especially in New York," stated J. Stephen Poor, managing partner of Seyfarth Shaw. "In the real estate and corporate arenas, we're now joined by some of the most respected and sought after transactional and cooperative and condominium attorneys in Manhattan, and our commercial litigation practice group will be a more robust and experienced bench of professionals."

New partners joining the firm are: Barry H. Mandel--real estate, corporate law, commercial law; Richard M. Resnik--corporate, real estate, commercial litigation; Nicholas J. Kaiser--corporate and securities law, real estate transactions and finance; Dennis H. Greenstein--cooperative housing law, condominium law, real estate; Elizabeth D. Schrero--real estate litigation, commercial litigation, cooperative and condominium association law; David M. Monachino--commercial litigation, real estate litigation, employment litigation; Marc J. Gurell--corporate, real estate, tax.

Poor noted that Seyfarth Shaw's focus on assembling teams of national "cross office" attorneys in all practice areas, as the firm has long done with its prominent employment practice, is receiving market recognition.

Mandel Resnik, established in 1977, is distinguished for its breadth of experience and capabilities relating to the acquisition, operation and disposition of real estate and the structure of real estate related transactions, cooperative and condominium law, its counsel in stock and asset acquisitions and advice in strategic acquisition, expansion and divestiture programs; and its representation of clients in matters of litigation including shareholder and partnership disputes, employment and discrimination actions, insurance coverage issues, and a wide range of real estate related matters.

"If we could have designed a firm that would fit best with our practice, Seyfarth Shaw would be it," said Richard M. Resnik.

"Seyfarth Shaw has a recognized national and regional platform in its core practice areas," added Barry H. Mandel. "We share a common strategy of delivering focused client services in key areas in which we both have established reputations."
