My Herrick Story: Dov Weinstock

What was it about Herrick that enticed you to join the firm?
It was a variety of factors, but among the most important, were the people. I met with numerous attorneys at the firm before joining Herrick and I had also represented clients opposite Herrick over the years. On each occasion I witnessed the respect the Herrick attorneys had for one another as well for everyone else they encountered, whether on the same side of the table or the opposite. Since my practice focuses on creating complex partnerships and joint ventures, it is important for me to be part of a culture that engenders collaboration and deal-making. I felt that I’d find that at Herrick, and I haven’t looked back since. As luck would have it, five weeks after joining the firm, our offices were effectively shut down due to the pandemic. Because of the amazing group of attorneys at Herrick, we did not miss a beat. I developed important relationships with everyone at the firm (albeit remotely), and working together with the team, we continued to provide the superb service our clients expect.
How has working at a mid-sized firm helped you to serve your clients?
The beauty of the Herrick infrastructure is that while we are indeed a mid-size firm, we really act as a small practice or a large firm, as the situation requires. We have the resources, skills, and ability to handle the largest and most sophisticated transactions, yet we are not too big to handle the run of the mill transactions. Additionally, our array of practice groups allows me to seamlessly represent my clients in all areas of a transaction, without having to engage outside counsel for various disciplines.
What is your best advice for an attorney coming to Herrick?
Bring your “A” game, your “A” attitude and bring yourself and your unique personality. Be prepared to work hard and under pressure, but have fun doing it.
What is next for you and your practice?
After the shock to the world at the beginning of 2020, the real estate market has certainly heated up. The fluid Covid conditions, coupled with an uncertain political climate, have brought both challenges and opportunities. For some, it means restructuring and recapitalizing. For others, it means a shift in strategy. Sponsors and equity partners alike have been back in full force and do not appear to be slowing down. Although we didn’t skip a beat working remotely, it is great to have everyone back in the office. The entire Herrick team remains ready to service the ongoing needs of our clients; and I personally look forward to helping my clients navigate the their way forward and close on their real estate acquisitions, financings and joint ventures.
