Partners, Groups, and Mergers
New York, NY
Arthur, usually known as “Woody,” specializes in placing partners and partner groups and in effecting firm mergers.
Woody joined Mestel & Company in 2016. Previously, Woody was an employee benefits partner at an Am Law 100 firm. When he retired from active practice, he wanted to find a law-related business where he could share his knowledge and put his experience in the industry to good use. His satisfaction comes from matching a candidate and firm so well that, years later, both are happy with the decision.
Woody earned his J.D. from New York Law School and a B.A. from City College of New York. In addition to discussing law and law firms, Woody is always happy to talk about sports and as a life-long New Yorker, he roots for the local teams. He also enjoys reading books, watching old movies, and discussing the most dangerous topic of all - politics.
