Martin C. Glass has joined Jenner & Block LLP’s Corporate Practice as a partner in the New York office.  He will focus on securities transactions, mergers and acquisitions and general corporate matters.

"The firm is committed to growing its Corporate Practice and the New York office with talented lawyers of the highest caliber,” said Jenner & Block Managing Partner Susan C. Levy.  “Martin’s reputation for the highest quality transactional work enhances our ability to provide our clients sophisticated legal services across all practice areas.”

According to Joseph P. Gromacki, chair of the firm-wide Corporate Practice, “Martin has an impressive client base, bringing extensive experience in cross-border financings, acquisitions and securities transactions.  As the firm continues to deepen our corporate bench strength, particularly in New York, Martin’s strong track record of success in this area is of utmost importance.”  In late 2013, Jenner & Block welcomed two highly regarded corporate partners in New York and Los Angeles, respectively:  Uri Doron, a leading M&A and private equity lawyer particularly active in representing foreign companies, many of them in Denmark, Sweden and Israel; and Tom Stromberg, a veteran of the California marketplace with rich insight into overseas markets such as Japan.

Martin, who worked at Goodwin Procter LLP since 2008,has represented issuers, underwriters and other participants in a wide range of capital markets transactions that align with the firm’s core transactional competencies, which include all key aspects of mergers and acquisitions, initial and follow-on public offerings, private placements of debt and equity, and alternative finance transactions.  “With significant industry experience in the natural resources and energy sectors, among others, Martin’s arrival adds to the firm’s already diverse corporate offerings,” said Wesley C. Fredericks, Jr., the chair of the New York Corporate Practice.  “We look forward to working with more clients in this space.”

“Martin is the fifth impressive new partner we’ve added to the New York Office in the last five months,” said Richard F. Ziegler, managing partner of the New York Office.  “Since September, we have brought on Neil M. Barofsky, the former special inspector general for TARP; Joseph L. Noga, the former deputy chief of litigation for GE Capital; Jeremy M. Creelan, former special counsel to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo; and Uri Doron, another talented transactional partner.”

“I am very excited to join Jenner & Block.  I look forward to helping grow the firm’s corporate practice, and to work on a wide range of transactions at a premier law firm,” Martin said.

Martin graduated with great distinction from McGill University, where he earned both an LL.B and a B.C.L.  He is admitted to practice in New York and Massachusetts.
