This week, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan announced that real estate attorney Jeffrey Keitelman has been promoted to co-managing partner. He joined the firm last year from DLA Piper /a>


“I am honored by the trust and confidence my partners have placed in me as their next Co-Managing Partner in succession to Stuart Coleman, who has been an outstanding leader for nearly two decades,” Keitelman said.

Keitelman succeeds Coleman, who will stay on the executive committee and as leader of the Stroock investment management group. Coleman was a corporate attorney at Stroock since 1979, and according to the Stroock press release, he represents many of the country’s leading mutual funds and investment advisers.

“The time seemed right to relinquish my seat as co-managing partner and enjoy the next phase of my career at Stroock and beyond,” Coleman said.

Keitelman told New York Law Journal that he was unanimously elected by the firm’s eight member executive committee, and that he will take on the role immediately. Keitelman works in Washington, DC and he will lead alongside New York-based co-managing partner Alan Klinger. He told New York Law Journal that this is the first time a non-New York-based partner has managed the Washington, DC office.

Klinger has been co-managing partner since 2007.

Some of Keitelman’s clients are in New York, and he said that he travels there frequently. New York clients include Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. His practice focuses on commercial real estate transactions, client advising, and deal making. His other clients include Beacon Capital, Morgan Stanley, and JP Morgan.

Keitelman earned his law degree from Columbia University Law School and his B.A.  from Brown University.

According to Lawcrossing, Stroock was established in 1876, and its largest office is in New York. It has branches in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and Washington DC, and Lawcrossing states that it “is a law firm providing transactional, regulatory and litigation guidance to leading financial institutions, multinational corporations, investment funds and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and abroad.”
