LOS ANGELES � Steptoe & Johnson has launched a real estate-oriented bankruptcy team with the addition of Robbin Itkin to its rapidly growing office in Century City, Calif. The Washington-based firm, which opened its Century City office in July 2006, now has 20 attorneys in West Los Angeles and nearly 40 in the Los Angeles area, including its downtown office. Itkin, who joins as a partner and comes from the Los Angeles office of Chicago’s Kirkland & Ellis, is launching the firm’s West Coast restructuring and insolvency practice. She represents debtors, creditors, trustees and committees of equity holders and bondholders in corporate restructurings and bankruptcies. Itkin also joins the new Real Estate Finance Litigation, Restructuring and Insolvency Team, which includes 22 partners firm-wide. Among them are: Francis Burke and Mark Neubauer, both in Century City; Greg Yates and Michael Rips in New York; Gwendolyn Prothro in Washington; and Christopher Barber in Chicago. The team focuses on litigation, restructuring and insolvency matters related to subprime lending and the recent softening of the real estate market. Those issues include contracts, financial fraud and the restructuring of real estate loans, mortgage-backed securities, collateralized debt, mortgage insurance and other real estate deals. Clients include investors, lenders, investment banks, mortgage insurance companies, sellers, trustees, real estate investment trusts (REITs), and commercial and residential developers and builders.
