Hinshaw Expands in Northeast Adding NJ Office and 8 Lawyers

Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP announced the addition of eight attorneys in its Consumer Financial Services practice and the opening of a New Jersey office in Iselin. Ben Raindorf, Anthony Scali, Mitchell Zipkin, and Robert Bailey have joined as partners, Kyle Stefanczyk as counsel, and Asha Abraham and Karena Straub are new associates. As part of this group, Donald Seeley has joined Hinshaw as an associate in the Boston office.

Formerly with Parker Ibrahim & Berg LLP, the group brings extensive experience with financial services litigation, commercial foreclosures, and a wide range of transactional matters.

“We are thrilled to have this highly skilled group of attorneys joining the firm as part of our strategic expansion in the Northeast,” said Ellen Silverman, co-partner in charge of the New Jersey office. “They bring additional depth to our litigation capabilities in the financial services sector, representing banks, mortgage companies, and student loan servicers, as well as significant experience with commercial real estate and financial services transactional work.”

Hinshaw attorneys— including Brian McGrath in New York, Samuel Bodurtha in Boston, Ofonedu-Ime Goodwyn in Miami, David Schultz in Chicago, and Stewart Spielman in New Orleans—have worked with attorneys in the group and have several shared clients.

“Their practices and experience complement the work of our existing Financial Services team,” said Justin Penn, chair of the financial services practice. “The firm’s decision to open an office in Iselin makes strategic sense with our presence in New York, Rhode Island, and Boston. Iselin’s location, at the convergence of four major highways and on the Amtrak Northeast corridor line, is geographically beneficial to many of our current clients and will provide expansive growth potential.”

Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP is a U.S.-based law firm with offices nationwide and in London. The firm’s national reputation spans the insurance industry, the financial services sector, and other highly regulated industries. Hinshaw also serves as counsel to the professional services sector and provides business advisory and transactional services to clients of all sizes.
