PHILADELPHIA – Sept. 11, 2019 –  Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP announced it is deepening its corporate capabilities locally by growing its Investment Management Practice in the Philadelphia office with the addition of Nathan Iacovino and Ryan Helmrich, both from Pepper Hamilton.

“The addition of Nate and Ryan to the team further expands our reach and ability to service our financial institution clients, both locally and nationally,” said Curtis B. Toll, managing shareholder of Greenberg Traurig’s Philadelphia office. “Their combined skillsets and their in-depth knowledge of asset servicing matters are indicative of the type of talent we continue to attract and the breadth of capabilities we offer.”

Iacovino joins the firm in an of counsel role, bringing a depth of knowledge as a former vice president at BNY Mellon, where he served an alternative investment client base in the Regulatory Control Group. In addition to Pepper Hamilton, he previously worked at Stradley Ronon. He earned his undergraduate degree from Dickinson College, his J.D. from Widener University School of Law, and is admitted in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

“Coming to a firm like Greenberg Traurig, with its reputation, global platform and well-rooted presence in this region, it just gave me the best of all worlds,” Iacovino said. “I look forward to growing my practice and helping the firm further broaden its footprint.”

Helmrich joins the firm as an associate with considerable experience as a former member of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch in-house counsel team and from a previous post with Morgan Lewis & Bockius, LLP. He holds degrees from American University and The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law.  His admissions include New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia.

“Bringing aboard these two respected investment management attorneys with diverse work backgrounds and significant investment company and investment advisory experience will continue the growth of the firm’s national practice and serve as an asset for the Philadelphia office and the firm’s clients,” said Steven M. Felsenstein, co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Investment Management Practice and a shareholder in the Philadelphia office.
