New York, September 7, 2017 — Cozen O’Connor is pleased to announce Benjamin A. Bomrind has joined the firm as a member of its Corporate Practice. Bomrind, who will play a key role in helping the firm expand its Corporate Practice in New York, comes to the firm from Seward & Kissel.
With a strong background in corporate finance, Bomrind represented private investment funds, investment management groups, and other clients investing in asset based and structured finance deals involving an array of assets, including real estate. Specifically, Bomrind advised and represented international and domestic banks, financial institutions, and market service providers in a range of transactions, including senior and subordinated loan financing, structured finance deals, and secured and unsecured loan financings. He drafted and negotiated operative transaction documents, including joint venture arrangements, credit facilities, loan and security agreements, purchase and sale agreements, operating leases and servicing and management agreements. Bomrind also has experience representing aircraft leasing companies and aircraft financiers in the acquisition, financing, leasing, and disposition of commercial aircraft.
“Benjamin is an ideal choice to help us expand our corporate finance capabilities in New York City,” says Larry P. Laubach, chair of the firm’s Corporate Practice Group. “He’s advised a diverse range of clients, from entrepreneurs to traditional banks and other financial institutions. Most importantly, he understands their business — especially the markets in which they compete and their long-term goals.”
“I am thrilled to welcome Benjamin to Cozen O’Connor,” adds Abby M. Wenzel, office managing partner of Cozen O'Connor’s New York office. “We are regularly involved in some of the nation’s largest real estate transactions and Benjamin brings experience handling major deals involving a range of private funds and management groups, as well as other investors.”
Prior to joining Seward & Kissel, Bomrind served as an associate with Vedder Price P.C., where he represented both providers and users of capital on a variety of commercial and structured matters, including leveraged lease transactions, back-leveraged transactions, secured transactions, bank loans, off-balance sheet facilities, warehouse facilities and credit arrangements. In that role, he represented lessees, lessors, and lenders in the purchase and sale of lease portfolios and in single-investor leases, restructurings, securitizations, and other structured financings of aircraft, railroad rolling stock, locomotives, and vessels. He also advised senior and subordinated lenders on inter-creditor related issues.
Bomrind received his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law and his B.A. from Ner Israel Rabbinical College.
