Morrison & Foerster Brings on Lawrence Ceriello as Partner

 

Global business law firm Morrison & Foerster announced this morning that Lawrence Ceriello will be joining their New York City office as a real estate finance partner.

The last twenty years of Ceriello’s career has focused on originating large commercial real estate loans, with an emphasis on those geared towards the CMBS market. He also has dealt extensively with mezzanine debt, workouts of distressed real estate, and equity investments and the purchase, sale, restructuring and foreclosure of performing and non-performing commercial mortgage and mezzanine loans. Ceriello joins MoFo from the New York office of Nixon Peabody, where he was also a partner.

As the recovery continues and the pace of CMBS originations grows, Larry’s experience will be invaluable. He brings longstanding relationships with leading financial institutions, including insurance companies, regional banks and other important participants in the market, and helps deepen the breadth of our already significant client base.“
