Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 18, 2008
Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP is pleased to announce that Jeffrey O. Greenfield has joined the Pittsburgh family attorneys Firm as a partner in the Business Services Department. Mr. Greenfield -- who has been an attorney for more than 18 years and has experience in structuring, negotiating and closing complex transactions -- was a part of the Schnader team until 2001.
"We are extremely pleased to have Jeff back at Schnader," said Chairman Ralph Wellington. "His experience both as an attorney and as an executive gives him a unique perspective that will benefit our clients. I am confident that his extensive background in corporate and commercial finance, real estate and leasing, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and syndications will allow him to be a dynamic addition to the Schnader team of Pittsburgh attorneys."
Just prior to joining Schnader's distinguished Pittsburgh, PA attorneys, Mr. Greenfield was the owner and chief operating officer of a wholesale book distribution company, and prior to that he was the founder and president of privately-held company that sought to acquire and operate leading middle-market companies within broad industry categories in the mid-Atlantic region. Mr. Greenfield began his career at the firm of Mesirov, Gelman, Jaffe, Cramer & Jamieson in 1987, becoming a partner in 1995, and serving as a member of the firm's executive committee and the hiring partner. He originally became a part of the Schnader firm when the Mesirov firm combined with Schnader in 2000.
During his career, he has also been a partner at another major downtown Philadelphia law firm, handling general corporate matters with a concentration in finance; mergers and acquisitions; private debt/equity; asset-based finance; and business formation, planning and counseling. Active in the local community as well, Mr. Greenfield has served in a variety of leadership roles, including serving on the Board of Directors for the Pals for Life Association (1992-2006) and as a member of the Corporate Partners Board, Philadelphia Zoo (1998-2004). He graduated cum laude with a B.A. in political science from Vanderbilt University in 1983, and received his J.D. from Emory University School of Law in 1987, where he was Articles Editor of the Emory Law Review.
