“Eric is our eighth lateral addition so far this year and he joins new partners and counsel in a number of important groups, including financial restructuring, real estate, corporate, private wealth and tax,” said Jeff Keitelman, Stroock’s co-managing partner.  “And we expect to see more additions in the months ahead.  We’ve created an environment where top-flight lawyers like Eric, in the prime of their careers, can flourish and grow their practices.”
