Commercial and residential real estate law firm Romer Debbas LLP has hired attorney Christian Daglieri as a partner in the firm's New York headquarters.

In his new role, Daglieri will focus on the agency transaction side as well as advising on acquisitions, development, financing, leasing and development of commercial real estate.

"Christian brings a whole new dynamic to the firm. Not only is he an experienced commercial real estate attorney but he has a great reputation in the world of agency involving Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae," said Michael Romer, the co-founding partner of Romer Debbas.

Daglieri tells CoStar News that he will continue his focus on representing sellers and servicers in the agency world and lenders who originate loans therein. He also plans to focus on resolving issues that can arise on the lending side, including titles and loan documents. Daglieri adds that his agency-side experience will help the law firm to grow an entirely new branch of business than what it customarily did, which was to represent portfolio lenders.

Pierre Debbas, Romer Debbas' other co-founding partner, said in a release that hiring Christian will help further expand our commercial lending group into new areas of the lending arena.

"I see a strong fourth quarter for lending that may stretch into the first quarter," said Daglieri about what he notes is a very strong commercial lending market in New York City, citing low rates and healthy volume. "A lot of people are concerned about the bubble bursting, but I don't see that. Lenders continue to require strong sponsors, and they are not going to leverage at 80-90 percent," he explains.

Daglieri has experience advising clients on both sides of the transaction table, representing lenders and borrowers in the New York City area and nationally on more than $1 billion in loan transactions throughout his career. Some of his recent transactional work includes a $200 million mortgage refinance, a $45 million multifamily acquisition and obtaining a $21 million first mortgage and $1 million revolving line of credit for a co-op corporation. He has also counseled multifamily and mixed-use borrowers in undertaking loan portfolio sales and acquisitions, fee-simple and leasehold financing structures, sale/leaseback transactions and construction and permanent lending transactions.

Before accepting the role at Romer Debbas, Daglieri was a partner at Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads LLP's New York office. He received his Juris Doctorate from St. John's University of Law and is a member of the New York State Bar Association.
