“Law Firm Hires 5, Keeps Recruiting”
Law firm Thompson & Knight has lured five commercial real estate finance attorneys from a crosstown rival and hopes to recruit a few more lawyers soon.
The new arrivals, led by industry veteran Michael Peskowitz, are moving over from Venable. They will start next week and remain based in New York. The quintet will join a real estate capital-markets group led by partners William O’Connor in Manhattan and Mark Weibel in Thompson’s Dallas headquarters.
