Chicago, Illinois – March 6, 2008 – LAWFUEL – Law Newswire – Loeb & Loeb LLP announced today that James V. Inendino will join the firm’s Chicago office as a partner in the Corporate Department, working in the Commercial Finance and Bankruptcy, Restructuring and Creditors’ Rights practice groups. He joins from McDermott Will & Emery LLP in Chicago where he was a partner. Inendino is the second lateral hire this year for Loeb & Loeb’s Chicago Corporate Department; Elizabeth Majers with whom he worked with at his prior firm, also joined the firm in mid-January.
“Jim’s expertise will complement the finance products that our firm already offers, such as Private Investment in Public Equity transactions (PIPEs); leveraged buyouts, mezzanine finance; insurance premium finance and real estate finance, among others,” said Loeb & Loeb Co-Chair Michael Beck.
Inendino’s practice is focused on health care finance as well as real estate related, asset based and credit based finance transactions. He regularly counsels clients on multiple property credit tenant loan securitization and leveraged leasing transactions and represents private institutional investors, including pension funds and insurance companies.
“In addition to growing our corporate practice, Jim’s extensive experience in real estate finance and leasing work will be a great asset to our real estate clients,” said Loeb & Loeb Co-Chair John Frankenheimer.
Inendino’s real estate practice focuses on commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential acquisitions, developments, financing and leasing. He has extensive experience representing commercial developers in shopping center and industrial property developments and has advised numerous owners and developers in their acquisitions, developments, financing and leasing transactions.
“Loeb & Loeb has shown dedication in expanding its corporate practice, specifically in their Chicago office,” Inendino said. “This kind of forward thinking, combined with their solid reputation, makes joining both exciting and a pleasure – I look forward to working with my new colleagues with great enthusiasm.”
Loeb & Loeb launched the Mortgage Industry Service Group in 2007 to advise clients with respect to the myriad of legal, economic and practical issues that have arisen as a result of the dislocations and upheavals in the subprime mortgage market. This work has included pre-bankruptcy and bankruptcy advice, debt restructuring, out of court recapitalizations, refinancing securitizations, rating agency matters, DIP financing, asset purchases and sales, and corporate disclosure and governance advice.
“Jim’s addition to our Chicago office, especially in the wake of Elizabeth Majers joining, further solidifies our growth plan for our corporate practice in this office,” said Daniel Frohling, a partner and Administrative Partner-in-Charge of Loeb & Loeb’s Chicago office. “He will be a valuable addition to our office and we look forward to working with him.”
