Nixon Peabody has appointed Ilana Kameros as managing partner of the firm’s New York City office.
Kameros takes over from Joseph Lynch, who was New York managing partner for more than six years. Lynch will continue to practice in the firm’s affordable housing and real estate group.
Kameros joined Nixon Peabody in 2010 from Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP, which later merged with Dentons. Earlier in her career, she was an associate at Thacher Proffitt & Wood.
Nixon Peabody’s New York City office – which has 110 attorneys and professionals – focuses on corporate, project finance and public finance, affordable housing and real estate, complex commercial disputes, and health care matters.
In addition to her office leadership role, Kameros will continue to practice in the firm’s corporate trust and banking & finance group. She represents corporate agency and trust groups in major banking institutions and trust companies in their roles as trustees, custodians, administrators, and agents.
Kameros’ expertise includes advising clients on complex deal structures, public and private debt and pass-through offerings of asset-backed securities, residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, CDO/CLO transactions, corporate debt issuances, and collateral agency appointments. Her portfolio of clients includes major trustee and agency banks.
Andrew I. Glincher, CEO and managing partner of Nixon Peabody, said: “Ilana has been integral to the success of our New York City office, building trusted client relationships throughout her practice and mentoring colleagues.”
He added: “The fresh perspectives Ilana brings to the table will help guide the office to further growth and success in the years to come.”
