As part of its strategic growth strategy in New York and in response to client demand, global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has welcomed Yossie Horwitz as a shareholder in the Private Equity Practice.

“Yossie’s impressive deal track record and experience in complex transactions adds depth and brings a unique skill-set to the practice with financial services and asset-management transactional experience, broadening the scope of services we provide clients,” said Alan I. Annex, co-chair of the firm's global Corporate Practice. “He shares our commitment to elevating the client experience and we are thrilled to welcome him as a shareholder both to the firm and our global Private Equity Practice.”
