Polsinelli welcomes John F. Bricker to the firm to focus on complex real estate and financial services matters for clients, including real estate finance & capital markets, distressed debt & workouts, and mortgage loan restructurings. Bricker is the third attorney to move to the New York office of Polsinelli in the last three months.

“Polsinelli’s reputation in financial services and real estate attracted me to the firm,” said Bricker from his Polsinelli New York City office. “The business-minded approach and focus on service complement my approach to serving clients.”

Bricker brings a wealth of experience in representing special servicers, investment banks, opportunity funds, REITs and hedge funds in the origination, purchase, sale and administration of whole loans, participation interests, equity interests, CMBS and other mortgage loans, and mezzanine loans.

Recently, the New York office added Shareholders Jeremy Johnson and David Barrack. Johnson handles financial retracting, insolvency issues and distressed debt matters. Barrack brings decades of experience in complex insolvency scenarios including litigation.

“As we continue to grow our New York presence, I’m pleased to welcome John, along with David and Jeremy, as key additions to our comprehensive and fully integrated finance practice,” said Dan Flanigan, the New York Office Managing Partner and Chair of the Financial Services & Real Estate Department.

Bricker earned his law degree from The University of Detroit School of Law, cum laude, where he was a member of the Law Review and received his B.S. in Accounting from Manhattan College.

Bricker joins Polsinelli at an exciting time. The firm just announced its move up seven positions in the AmLaw 100 ranking to #86. New York has been part of that growth. Newly expanded and relocated in 2012, Polsinelli attorneys in New York work in financial services, real estate & real estate finance, bankruptcy, intellectual property litigation, and other commercial litigation.
