Riemer & Braunstein, a law firm concentrating on the representation of financial institutions and debt and equity funds in national and regional commercial finance and real estate finance transactions, promoted five lawyers to senior partner and two lawyers to partner.

“This year’s promotions to senior partnership and partnership are particularly significant to our geographic platform and reflect the strength of our summer program, law school hiring practices and our commitment to seek excellent lateral candidates in our core practice areas,” Kevin Lyons, a member of Riemer & Braunstein’s executive committee and a co-chair of the firm’s real estate finance practice area.

One of the partners promoted to senior partner was Anthony B. Stumbo. Since joining the firm in 2011, Stumbo has practiced in multiple practice areas, including commercial finance, loan restructuring and workouts, and bankruptcy.

“Anthony has earned the trust of clients and colleagues alike,” Kevin Murtagh, a member of Riemer & Braunstein’s executive committee and a co-chair of the firm’s commercial finance practice area, said. “The breadth of his experience in commercial finance, including in distressed borrower situations, will facilitate our continued growth and service to a wide range of institutional and non-bank lenders alike.”

Stumbo represents banks and other financial institutions in structuring and documenting corporate finance transactions on a local, regional, national and cross-border basis. In addition, Stumbo serves as counsel to clients in workout and restructuring matters, including debtor-in-possession, 363 acquisition, cash collateral and exit facilities. He also performs transactional work for sellers, purchasers, lenders, secured creditors and unsecured creditors of financially troubled companies, non-judicial restructurings and Chapter 11 reorganizations throughout the United States.
