The international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP made yet another strategic move in its Mergers & Acquisitions Practice with the addition of Shareholder Frank Martire III, who has joined in New York from Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

“On the heels of additions such as Joe Cosentino and Ivan Presant from Clifford Chance, our New York M&A practice is fortunate to welcome Frank Martire. Frank spent nearly eight years at Weil working with Michael Aiello, the head of Weil's Corporate Department. Frank brings with him a wealth of experience in the M&A and divestitures arena as well as investment banking and shareholder related matters,” said Richard A. Rosenbaum, CEO of Greenberg Traurig. “Clients recognize that they get the same or better quality when they turn to our firm, along with extraordinary value not possible at the legacy corporate firms. Our winning formula is gaining momentum."

Martire focuses his practice on mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures involving public companies. He also advises clients on corporate governance issues, activist defense measures, and other strategic considerations.

“I am excited about the opportunity to work alongside Greenberg Traurig’s international team of M&A lawyers whose values reflect my own,” said Martire. “I look forward to being a part of this dynamic and growing practice.”

This year has been a time of strategic growth by the firm, taking advantage of the uncertainty in the market and the demand clients have for a firm that can deliver both excellence and value. Most recently, Ivan Presant and Joseph Cosentino joined the Corporate & Securities Practice from Clifford Chance.

Since January, the firm has also grown its Corporate & Securities Practice with the addition of shareholders Anthony L. Perricone and Nanette Aguirre in New York, Dorothee Fischer-Appelt and Joel Wheeler in London, José Raz Guzmán and Miguel Moisés in Mexico City, Flora R. Perez in Ft. Lauderdale, Thomas B. Romer in Denver, James A. Dempsey in New Jersey, and Ishikawa and Ohashi in Tokyo.

On May 12, the firm was named as one of America’s top corporate law firms in the 2015 Annual Law and the Boardroom Study conducted by NYSE Governance Services and FTI Consulting, Inc. The "America’s Best Corporate Law Firms" reflects the views of more than 500 participating directors and general counsel of publically traded companies, who between February and April 2015, participated in the survey and weighed in on current governance and legal matters. The top 25 law firms, based on number of votes received, are included in the ranking.

Greenberg Traurig’s Corporate & Securities Practice comprises more than 400 lawyers who advise public and privately held companies on global mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, private equity and venture capital, underwritten and syndicated offerings, commercial finance and syndicated lending, cross-border transactions, and general corporate matters. The group’s industry experience includes transactions in a wide range of fields, from the pharmaceutical, medical devices, and life sciences fields, to representations involving clients in the aviation, banking, energy, health care, manufacturing, technology, and telecommunications sectors.

Martire earned his J.D. from the University of Connecticut Law School and Bachelor of Science from Fairfield University.
