January 30, 2018

Levenfeld Pearlstein, LLC (LP) is pleased to announce that partner Jeffery Hoffenberg has been named the Real Estate Practice Group Leader. In his new role, Hoffenberg will provide leadership and direction to the Chambers-rated group by way of coaching, planning, economic oversight, positioning, and recruitment. Hoffenberg succeeds Keith Ross, who had led the group since 2012. Ross, a highly-respected real estate attorney, will remain at the firm as a partner. 

In addition, Linsey Neyt has been appointed the Real Estate Group’s Assignment and Development Partner. In this role, she will focus on the distribution of workflow and project management within the group as well as making the processes and procedures of the group more efficient. Together, Hoffenberg and Neyt will work together toward the firm's main goal of ensuring that LP’s clients receive an unparalleled client experience. 

Hoffenberg represents purchasers and sellers in a wide range of commercial real estate matters, including acquisitions, dispositions, sale-leaseback transactions, and mortgage financings. He has extensive experience in drafting, reviewing and negotiating loan documents, purchase and sale agreements, management agreements, corporate documentation, and due diligence as well as lease agreements in connection with commercial, industrial, and retail leasing transactions. Hoffenberg also currently serves as a Commissioner on the Village of La Grange Plan Commission, after having previously served on the Village of La Grange Zoning Board of Appeals for six years.

Neyt represents both commercial landlords and tenants, helping them to plan for potential risk, future growth needs, and eventual exit from the asset. She enjoys educating her clients on market trends and finding alternative solutions to make sure they feel informed and protected. In addition, Neyt has helped buyers and sellers with acquisition and disposition of commercial properties in all asset classes with special emphasis on multi-family and single tenant properties. She also is chair of the Corporate Work-Study Committee for the Leadership Advisory Counsel for Cristo Rey and has helped strengthen and enhance the involvement of LP associates’ involvement with the firm’s Cristo Rey students.

Practice group leadership transitions are a part of LP's deliberate succession planning protocol, designed to provide opportunities for different individuals at the firm to serve in leadership roles. Since its early days, LP's leadership has cultivated leaders through a formal training program, and its successful implementation continues to create future leaders with skills that build upon those of their predecessor. 

We congratulate Jeffery and Linsey on their new roles.
