The firm’s new offices will be located at 350 North Orleans Street, Chicago, Illinois. Attorney Andrew F. Lampert recently joined the firm as a partner and will be heading the Chicago office.
“We are very excited to announce the addition of Andrew to our team, and equally pleased to be able to offer our clients the enhanced benefits of service across the Midwest,” said Michael Federman, managing partner of the firm. “A Chicago presence will help us serve the needs of our existing clients and showcase our experience and service to potential clients,” he added.
“I am looking forward to my role within such an outstanding firm and carrying on in the firm’s tradition of dedication to client service and providing superior legal expertise,” Lampert said.
Opening the Chicago office represents a further step toward the firm’s goal of expanding its national real estate, structured finance and corporate footprint.

There is tremendous talent available in the marketplace today and we intend to capitalize on our ability to take advantage of such a deep pool of eligible and highly qualified candidates.”
