Leading Real Estate Law Firm Shulman Grundner Etoll & Danaher, P.C. to Join Hancock Estabrook

Hancock Estabrook, LLP is pleased to announce that C. Daniel Shulman, Charles H. Grundner, Stephen G. Etoll and Christian J. Danaher are joining the Firm as partners effective May 1, 2019.

These highly experienced and well-respected real estate and transactional lawyers, who focus on all aspects of commercial real estate including land acquisitions and sales, construction loans and permanent financing, retail and office leasing, title insurance and various other matters related to real estate development, will add even greater depth to the service capabilities of the Hancock Estabrook real estate team.

“Hancock Estabrook has always enjoyed a stellar reputation in the Central New York legal community.  I believe our Firm’s expertise will complement their diverse practices, and we look forward to their attorneys being able to assist our Firm’s existing clients in any number of practice areas outside of our core expertise of real estate.  In considering the move, the fit between the two Firms in this regard became obvious and we feel will be beneficial to both of us,” said C. Daniel Shulman, Senior Partner of Shulman Grundner Etoll & Danaher, P.C.

“It’s a great honor to welcome these premier real estate attorneys to our Firm. We have a lot in common with the Shulman team. We both focus on client-based solutions and client service as pillars of our practices and will benefit from the combined experience and talents of each firm,” said Timothy P. Murphy, Managing Partner of Hancock Estabrook. “Uniting our people will prove valuable to both firms’ clients, as we will now offer an expanded breadth of legal solutions, especially in the area of commercial real estate.  As one of Upstate New York’s leaders in the practice of real estate law, we are thrilled to have these outstanding lawyers as partners in our growing Firm.”
