F. Robert Brusco, who was a partner in the real estate practice group at Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf, is making a lateral move to Hunton & Williams.

Brusco, who has more than 25 years of experience in the commercial real estate sector, previously had been a managing director at LAMCO, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lehman Brothers created after its bankruptcy filing. There he led several teams responsible for the asset management, restructuring and workout of over $3 billion of real estate positions owned by the Lehman estate.

Brusco’s practice focuses on the representation of major investment banks, lending institutions, real estate funds, developers, investors and operators in all types of commercial real estate in such matters as acquisitions, dispositions, financing, joint ventures and leasing transactions. He has negotiated, structured and closed large-scale, complex real estate debt and equity transactions valued at over several billion dollars.

“Rob brings strong real estate investment and finance experience, further strengthening our prominent practice,” says Carl F. Schwartz, co-chair of the firm’s global real estate practice. “Bringing him on board aligns perfectly with our strategic decision to add high-level lawyers in key practices and geographic regions.”

Hunton & Williams’ real estate group advises clients on matters involving the full spectrum of commercial, industrial, retail, multifamily, hospitality and mixed-use properties.

With more than 75 real estate and finance lawyers, the group closed deals in 34 states and handled over 185 transactions totaling $37.5 billion last year.
