MORRISTOWN, N.J. – April 5, 2017 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP further grew its Corporate Practice with two strategic additions, Lee A. Albanese and Brian L. Petrequin, in New Jersey. They join Greenberg Traurig as the firm continues to enhance its Corporate Practice with targeted lateral hiring, specifically in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and investment management.

“Brian and Lee are very highly-regarded attorneys who are well-known throughout New Jersey for their solutions-oriented approach,” said Philip R. Sellinger and Geoffrey S. Berman, co-managing shareholders of the New Jersey office, in a joint statement. “The corporate team in New Jersey and throughout the firm will greatly benefit from their experience.”

“I have a diverse client-base so it was important for me to join a firm that provides the efficiency and attentiveness of a boutique firm, but with the global reach and platform of one of the largest firms in the world,” Petrequin said. 

“Lee and Brian are exceptional attorneys and we are thrilled to have them join Greenberg Traurig,” said Bruce I.
