Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., a leading New York City real estate law firm, has announced that Jack Rose has joined the firm as a Member to lead the firm's new Bankruptcy and Reorganization Department.

The addition of Rose and the establishment of a bankruptcy and reorganization department demonstrates Rosenberg & Estis' commitment to continue providing clients with comprehensive legal representation across all aspects of real estate, and beyond. The new practice adds another resource to serve Rosenberg & Estis' clients and complements the firm's recent expansion into the areas of Construction, Tax Certiorari and Co-Op / Condominium.

Rose has three decades of experience in bankruptcy and distressed situations having been actively involved in many of the nation's largest bankruptcies, representing landlords, tenants, lenders, acquirers, investors, debtors and creditors. His experience with distressed real estate and real-estate-owning entities in bankruptcy includes his representation of Olympia and York and VMS NHP in their Chapter 11 bankruptcies.

In addition, the department has experience across a broad spectrum of industries, including Hospitality, Real Estate, Airlines, Retail, Hotels, Agriculture, Oil and Gas, Transportation, Shipping, Entertainment, Technology, IT, Aquaculture, Education Services, Printing, Manufacturing, Mining, Insurance, Telecommunications, Parking, Healthcare, Education, Not for Profits and Municipal Insolvencies.

The department's experience also includes analyzing and developing structures that enhance the protections available to investors, acquirers, lenders and creditors in the event of an insolvent counterparty, or in cases when a counter party becomes insolvent.

"The creation of a department focused on reorganization and bankruptcy helps us further service clients as the firm continues to grow," said Luise A. Barrack, Managing Member with Rosenberg & Estis. "Jack's deep experience with distressed situations and bankruptcy issues, and the addition of this department, significantly expands our scope and advances our mission to provide a full suite of complementary services."

Prior to joining Rosenberg & Estis, Rose was a partner at the Law Offices of Jack J. Rose in Bronxville, where he represented investors, creditors, shareholders and debtors in connection with investments and restructurings. In addition, Rose has served as a mediator and court appointed Chief Restructuring Officer. Rose was previously with the firms of Ashurst LLP, White & Case, Rogers & Wells (now Clifford Chance) and Weil Gotshal and Manges.
