Garden City, NY; September 11, 2023 – Moritt Hock & Hamroff announced today the addition of five attorneys to its New York City office, significantly expanding its real estate practice and further illustrating the firm’s continued growth. Matthew Leeds, William McCracken and David Fitzhenry join as Partners, while Matthew Healey joins as Counsel and Brett Stack joins as an Associate.

"At a time when other firms are leaving New York City, we are taking additional space and expanding our already robust real estate practice," said Marc Hamroff, managing partner at Moritt Hock & Hamroff. "My partners and I are excited to add these five experienced and respected names to our real estate team, representing various groups in all aspects of complex transactions and doing so in an ever-changing market."
