NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cassin & Cassin LLP, a law firm specializing in real estate, real estate finance and trusts and estates, today announced the hiring of Rand Boyers Peppas as Partner effective November 16, 2017. She is based in the firm’s New York City office.
Ms. Peppas, a real estate and real estate finance attorney, brings more than 30 years of experience representing institutions and high net-worth individuals in transactions relating to properties throughout the U.S. and in several foreign jurisdictions. Over the course of her long and distinguished career, she has gained experience in virtually every type of real estate transaction, and has cultivated a deep understanding of the priorities and concerns on both sides of transactions that allows her to craft solutions that protect her lender clients’ interests without interfering with borrowers’ businesses.
Ms. Peppas joins Cassin & Cassin from DLA Piper LLP, where she served as partner since 2008. She began her legal career as an associate at Sidley & Austin in Los Angeles, CA, and thereafter joined other firms in New York, NY, such as Schulte Roth & Zabel, Brown Raysman Millstein Felder & Steiner and Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner.
“We’re thrilled to have Rand on board and are confident our clients and colleagues will benefit tremendously from her knowledge and breadth of experience,” said Joseph Cassin, Founder of Cassin & Cassin. “Her professional background complements our own, but given the volume, size and complexity of deals she has worked on, we believe Rand will be instrumental in propelling the firm to its next stage of growth. We extend our warmest welcome to her on behalf of the entire Cassin & Cassin team.”
“I’m excited to join a team of attorneys and other legal professionals whose knowledge of real estate law rivals that of any large, national law firm,” Ms. Peppas added. “I was drawn to Cassin & Cassin for their values and the hands-on, personalized approach they provide to all clients, regardless of size. I look forward to using my areas of expertise to build on the great work the firm has already done.”
Ms. Peppas received her JD from Northwestern University School of Law and a BA in Political Science and Psychology from Emory University. She is admitted to practice law in the State of New York and is a member of the American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, CRE Finance Council (CREFC), and the CREFC Women’s Network.
