Two commercial real estate attorneys and their team have joined Scarinci Hollenbeck, the firm announced Thursday.
The attorneys, Matt Kane and Chris Dzwilewski, come to the regional business law firm as partner and counsel, respectively. Both new additions and their three paralegals are based in Scarinci Hollenbeck’s Lyndhurst office, with all five having worked together at Schwartz, Simon, Edelstein & Celso in the Whippany section of Hanover.
Kane, who has been practicing law for nearly 25 years, and Dzwilewski collectively handle hundreds of real estate transactions in the course of a given year, the firm said in a news release. Their practice is focused on all types of real estate transactional work, with an emphasis on representing institutional investors attempting to liquidate large portfolios of distressed real property and nonperforming loans, where borrowers and owners are in mortgage default.
“When dealing with distressed real estate, it is essential that the title issues be addressed and resolved as quickly as possible so that ultimately the client can efficiently and timely dispose of the real estate, because time really is money,” Kane said in a prepared statement.
They are the newest members of the firm’s commercial real estate law practice.
“Bringing Matt and Chris to our commercial real estate law group is part of our overall plan to expand our offerings to meet the needs of our growing client base,” said Russell Ascher, executive director of the firm. “We welcome Matt and his team to Scarinci Hollenbeck, and look forward to offering an even greater depth of services to the clients we represent.”
