    June 2018

    Mark D. Mako, who has extensive experience representing developers and lenders, has joined Giordano, Halleran & Ciesla, P.C., as a shareholder.

    He began as a member of the firm’s Real Estate, Redevelopment and Planned Real Estate Development Department on May 29.

    “Mark brings deep knowledge of real estate and banking, having spent decades as a trusted adviser to clients in a wide range of matters,” said Paul Colella, Co-Managing Shareholder at GH&C. “We are delighted to announce that he has joined the firm.”

    Mako’s representative matters include representation of a retail mall owner in connection with a $600 million revolving loan facility and a $1.9 billion term loan facility, as well as representation of a commercial lender in modifications of a $100 million mortgage secured by a mortgage on a Manhattan commercial office building.
