Experience

Stu Glick focuses his practice on complex commercial, real estate, energy lending, and bankruptcy litigation. His clients include lending consortiums, institutional lenders, financial institutions, hedge funds, CMBS special servicers, private equity funds, investment firms, insurance companies, real estate developers, retail establishments, and shopping center developers. Stu has significant expertise in the representation of lenders in complex asset recovery proceedings involving participated or syndicated loans and lender liability claims. He also has experience with debt restructurings and loan portfolio sales and purchases.

Stu views litigation as but one tool to be used to resolve disputes, with it being a means to an end and not an end in and of itself. Consequently, he counsels clients to have a clear objective before commencing any litigation, develops a litigation strategy designed to achieve the desired objective, and proactively modifies that strategy as a case develops, while keeping clients informed and involved at all times.

Having begun his career as a trial attorney with the United States Department of Justice through the Attorney General’s Honors Program, Stu had the opportunity to try cases involving complex tax, commercial, bankruptcy, and constitutional law issues, in addition to significant claims of first impression, including a $500 million excise tax claim in the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corporation bankruptcy.

He is frequently invited to speak on commercial, bankruptcy, and real estate litigation issues.
