New York City, July 8, 2021 – Adding its third D.C.-based partner in less than a month - and its eighth lateral partner in a year - Stroock continues to enhance service offerings for clients with the addition of Steven R. Schneider. 

Steve counsels clients on tax ramifications related to real estate fund development, acquisitions, qualified opportunity zones, cross-border deals, dispositions, restructurings and real estate partnerships.  A nationally recognized tax practitioner, Steve also advises clients on tax-related implications of REITs, international investing (including sovereigns), IRS audits and S corporations.

“Steve’s career has taken him from the IRS to the Big 4 to Big Law. This gives him a sophisticated and nuanced understanding of the myriad tax implications involved with structuring real estate and corporate transactions,” said firm Co-Managing Partner Jeff Keitelman, who also serves as Co-Chair for the Real Estate practice. “His insights on policy and practical outcomes will be invaluable to our clients.”

Further to his experience with the real estate activities of his clients, Steve has deep tax experience relating to corporate actions including mergers & acquisitions, private equity investments and joint ventures, having represented companies in transactions in the banking and financial services, credit, technology, automotive, bioscience, entertainment, and manufacturing industries, among others.

“I am thrilled to be joining Stroock, a firm with a great reputation for real estate and tax counsel,” Steve said. “The firm is highly regarded for its collegial atmosphere and commitment to providing superior client service.” 

He earned his B.S., summa cum laude, from the University of Missouri, his J.D., Order of the Coif, from the Washington University School of Law and his LL.M., with distinction, from Georgetown University Law Center.

Steve’s addition to Stroock continues the firm’s active hiring in 2021. Late last month, Stroock expanded its government investigations capabilities with seasoned white collar and securities litigation partners Rich Morvillo, Scott Morvillo and Ellen Murphy, which followed the addition of Real Estate/Hospitality partner Michael Kosmas and M&A/Private Equity corporate partner Peter Rooney.
