ATLANTA-Five attorneys from Bryan Cave Powell Goldstein have joined Morris Manning & Martin LLP to establish a new timberland investments and forest products practice with the locally based law firm. Those involved in the move are partners C. Glenn Dunaway and Stephen B. Schrock, of counsel Chuck Connors and associates Karen Reschly and Rebecca Vandiver, plus senior paralegal Wenona Mills.

With these additions, Morris Manning will expand its practices in the areas of real estate capital markets, REIT representation, fund formation and management, domestic and international tax, corporate representation and commercial real estate. Dunaway will lead the firm’s core timberland corporate practice, while Schrock will lead its core timberland real estate practice.

“The firm’s timber lawyers represent investors, owners and managers in timber transactions involving millions of acres of timberland throughout the US, South America, Europe and Africa,” Robert Saudek, Morris Manning managing partner, stated in a release. “This type of expansion validates our belief that a smart growth strategy in a tight market is the right approach.”

The timberland investments and forest products practice brings tremendous experience in capturing tax advantages of timber investments; advising clients with respect to acquisitions, sales, exchanges and joint ventures; and working with the formation and operation of international timberland investment funds.

The new group will also bolster the firm’s green industry and energy practices. Many timber companies and timber investment management organizations are actively seeking opportunities in the carbon credit and biofuel markets.
