Greenberg Traurig Adds Two to Corporate Practice in NJ


Global law firm Greenberg Traurig grew its Corporate Practice with two additions, Lee A. Albanese and Brian L. Petrequin, as shareholders in New Jersey.

They join Greenberg Traurig from LeClairRyan as Greenberg 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.”

Albanese focuses on corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. He counsels publicly and privately held companies across a wide variety of industries and represents major financial institutions in lending activities.

Petrequin concentrates on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate law. He serves as lender’s counsel and represents public and private corporations, as well as banks and other financial institutions. He also represents clients in matters related to intellectual property and internet law.
