Kutak Rock LLP last month hired Jeffrey Blumenfeld in its Philadelphia office.
Blumenfeld has 26 years of experience as bond counsel, underwriters' counsel, and counsel to conduit borrowers, credit enhancers, and trustees, the firm said in a statement. He has a wide range of experience in public finance transactions, including governmental, utility, education, housing, health care, 501(c)(3), industrial development and redevelopment financings, securitizations of tax liens, and derivatives.
A member of the board of directors and a past president of the Pennsylvania Association of Bond Lawyers, Blumenfeld is a graduate of Rutgers University School of Law-Camden, as well as Princeton University. He previously was a partner in the Philadelphia office of WolfBlock LLP, where chaired the public finance practice. The firm unwound its practice earlier this year.
Prior to joining WolfBlock in July 2007, Blumenfeld was with Blank Rome LLP, in Philadelphia, for 24 years.
