David Grantz, who joined Meyner and Landis as an associate in 1997 and has been an integral part of the firm for decades, has been named as the new managing partner.
Grantz, who assumed the role earlier this year, succeeds William Fiore, who had served in the role since 2007.
Grantz has risen steadily through the ranks of the firm for the past 25 years, making a name for himself and the firm along the way.
As a member of the Banking Group, Grantz appears regularly in New Jersey and New York state, federal and bankruptcy courts, representing financial institutions, commercial lenders and private lenders.
As an experienced commercial litigator, Grantz handles complex commercial litigation cases from commencement through mediation, arbitration or trial and/or settlement and appeal.
The firm, which makes its headquarters at One Gateway in Newark, also has a location in New York City.
Co-founded in 1962 by former New Jersey Gov. Robert Meyner, the firm is focused on serving the business community with concentrations in banking, business transactions, business immigration, corporate law, creditor’s rights, commercial litigation, environmental law, trusts and estates and real estate.
Grantz said he is eager to take on the new role — and to uphold the firm’s reputation.
“I am very pleased to serve as managing partner as we celebrate 60 years providing legal advice and counsel to the banking and business community,” he said. “We look forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead of us in the next 60 years.”
