Garden City-based Moritt Hock & Hamroff announced Monday its new “Closely-Held/Family Business Practice Group.”
The group comprises attorneys who focus in corporate and mergers and acquisitions, estate planning and employment law.
The team consists of six of the firm’s attorneys: Brian Adelman, Jill Braunstein, Keith Frank, Stephen J. Ginsberg, Louis Karol and Tina Kassangana. Together, these attorneys will collaborate to bring “creative and effective solutions to the broad array of legal issues that family enterprises encounter on a day-to-day basis and as they evolve over generations,” according to a press release from the firm announcing the new group.
“Based upon the level of interest expressed by our clients, MHH recognized family and business planning as a logical addition to the scope of our services,” Marc Hamroff, the firm’s managing partner, said in a statement.
“We developed the practice to specifically address the needs of these clients, their companies and their families,” he added. “The proficiency and experience of this seasoned group of attorneys provides significant value to the firm and to our clients looking to grow and protect their assets and operations.”
Co-chairing the new group are Braunstein – a partner in the firm’s corporate, M&A and securities practice group – and Karol – a partner with the firm in its trusts and estates practice group co-chair the new group.
Frank, a partner with the firm, co-chairs its employment practice group. Ginsberg is a partner in the firm’s litigation practice group. Adelman is an associate with the firm in its trusts and estates practice group. Kassangana is an associate in the firm’s corporate, M&A and securities, and intellectual property practice groups.
