Attorney William Levinson Joins Greenberg Traurig


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Former Alschuler Grossman Stein & Kahan Partner William Mark Levinson has joined Greenberg Traurig’s Los Angeles office as a shareholder in its corporate and securities practice.

“I am fortunate to have found a group of extremely talented attorneys with whom I share a business and entrepreneurial spirit,” Levinson said in a release, calling his new firm  “a good culture fit” and a “perfect complement” for his corporate and financial transactions practice.

Admitted to the State Bar of California in 1987, Levinson has over 23 years of experience in negotiating, documenting and consummating private and public offerings of debt and equity securities. He provides counsel to public and mid-market companies on securities compliance and corporate governance issues and assists financial institutions, borrowers and others in developing and implementing effective responses to securities default and loan matters.

The lawyer’s expertise includes real estate acquisitions and syndications, particularly in the tenant-in-common real estate syndication industry, as well as municipal financings, investment banking and private equity investments.

Thomas Loo, co-managing shareholder of Greenberg Traurig’s Los Angeles office, said Levinson’s addition to the firm will be “invaluable” in growing its client base in the tenant-in-common real estate syndication industry.

“Mark’s expertise in representing financial institutions, municipalities, higher education institutions, redevelopment agencies and other government authorities in complex financings integrates well with our national public finance practice,” Loo added.

Levinson’s clients include Wedbush Morgan Securities and Deutsche Bank National Trust Company, along with other national underwriters, financial institutions, corporate entities, real estate syndicators, municipal issuers and educational institutions.

Prior to his employment with Alschuler Grossman in Santa Monica, the lawyer was a partner in Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps. 

His professional activities include membership in the Tenant-in-Common Association, the National Association of Bond Lawyers, the Association for Corporate Growth and the Los Angeles Business Counsel.

Levinson earned his law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in New York and his undergraduate degree from Brandeis University.
