The group represents real property owners, developers and real estate industry groups including JP Morgan, A&E Real Estate Holdings, BD Hotels, the Beverly Hills Unified School District and the Real Estate Board of New York, to name a few.

“Jennifer added tremendous depth of experience in complex trial matters to our already-elite team of litigators,” said Alan Klinger, Stroock’s co-managing partner. “Jennifer is at the top of her field and has the respect of clients and colleagues alike. We expect that she’ll make a significant contribution in this new role.”

In the real estate sector, Jennifer supports  clients on commercial real estate, land use and environmental litigation matters involving the investment, development, construction, sale and management of billions of dollars in real estate assets and infrastructure projects.

“Stroock’s full service real estate practice is truly second to none, and it has proven to be an exceptional platform for my litigation practice,” said Jennifer. “Our real estate litigators collaborate seamlessly with the broader real estate team to manage risk and bring tremendous focus and energy to litigating disputes when it is necessary. I am tremendously excited to leverage the power of our platform and lead next-level strategic work for the firm and our clients.”
