With more than 20 years of corporate and bankruptcy law experience at Am Law 100 firms Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP and Venable LLP, Carollynn Callari, who is regarded as one of New York’s preeminent bankruptcy attorneys, has joined Raines Feldman as a partner. In 2014, she founded Callari Partners LLP which ultimately grew to seven attorneys, including former Cadwalader attorney David Forsh who has also joined Raines Feldman as a partner.

Gregg Shulklapper, a former Willkie alum and colleague of Callari, has also joined Raines Feldman as a partner in the firm’s corporate practice group. Shulklapper launched the boutique corporate transactional firm Shulklapper Associates in 2008 to service emerging and established private and public companies as well as their investors, advisors and executives. Shulklapper’s practice spans a wide range of domestic and international transactional matters including mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financings and executive compensation issues.

After maintaining a close business relationship between their respective firms for nearly a decade, Callari and Shulklapper recently decided to merge their collective practices and join Raines Feldman’s growing New York office.

"You have to work with people you respect and trust, and in Raines Feldman, we found the perfect alignment in terms of philosophy, culture and long-term goals," noted Callari. "It’s a place where we each can continue to build our practice and contribute to the firm’s core strengths, while drawing on the exceptional talent and varied experience of our new colleagues," said Shulklapper.

In recent months, Raines Feldman’s expansion strategy in both Los Angeles and New York has included the hiring of business divorce lawyer Simon Miller to run the firm’s New York office as managing partner, and the launch of a Media and Entertainment practice by welcoming Rami Yanni and Bill Hochberg from Rosenfeld, Meyer & Susman in Los Angeles. Other recent additions include former Reed Smith corporate partner Mitchell Cohen in Los Angeles, and former Troutman Pepper corporate partner Derek Dundas in Orange County.

"These strategic additions represent another milestone in the firm’s growth strategy that maintains a cultural focus on promoting the self-actualization and optimization of all its team members," said Miller, the firm’s recently appointed New York managing partner.

"We are assembling a highly skilled team of lawyers and business professionals in both Los Angeles and New York," noted Jonathan Littrell, Raines Feldman’s managing partner. "With the vast opportunities for continued growth and a deep belief in the firm’s vision and culture, we will continue to build capacity to advance our clients’ business priorities at the local and national level."
