We are seeking two associates, one with three to four years of experience and one with four to six years of experience, to join our real estate and finance practice in Stamford and New York. Candidates should have experience in commercial real estate with a focus on leasing, conveyancing and bank side lending including drafting loan documents. Experience with structured finance/capital markets and general corporate matters is considered a plus but not required. Strong drafting and negotiation skills are required. Candidates must be self-starters, have the desire to grow in responsibility and ultimately manage transactions, have experience working as a member of a team on complex deals and be willing to work out of offices in Stamford, New York and occasionally Hartford as needs dictate. We will consider candidates who prefer to work from the firm’s New York office on a limited regular schedule for a portion of the time so long as the candidate would also maintain a regular primary schedule in one of the firm’s Connecticut offices. To apply, please click here.


We are seeking an attorney with a minimum of five years of experience in transactional work to join our well-established, nationally renowned Corporate Trust practice in either our Hartford or Stamford office. The Corporate Trust group works closely with the capital markets and loan agency departments of major national banks and other financial institutions, representing them as trustees, administrative agents, escrow agents and collateral or security agents in a wide variety of corporate debt, project finance, municipal bond, secured and structured financing transactions and defaults. Applicants with finance or securities/capital markets experience would be ideal. Successful applicants must have the ability to work with complex transactional documents and prioritize work in a deadline-intensive environment. We value collaboration and collegiality among our lawyers and are looking for someone proactive with strong interpersonal skills to join our team. Although the Hartford or Stamford offices are preferred, in certain circumstances, we may consider candidates for the New York office. To apply, please click here.
