Chuhak & Tecson elevates Bloomberg and Sethna to shareholders and Glubisz to principal

Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. proudly announces that Principals David Bloomberg and Eileen Sethna have been elevated to Shareholders of the firm and Associate Andrew Glubisz is now a Principal. These three attorneys consistently demonstrate their strong commitment to the firm and are exemplars of Chuhak & Tecson’s pillars of responsive service, creative collaboration and exceptional value.

Bloomberg, who joined Chuhak & Tecson in 2010, leads the firm’s Condominium & Common Interest Community Association Group. His practice includes products liability litigation, commercial litigation, and condominium and common interest community association law. His extensive experience encompasses all aspects of the litigation process, including case strategy and management, pre-trial motion practice, depositions, hearings, trial preparation and trial.

“David is single-minded about achieving excellent results for his clients and advocates strongly on their behalf to meet and even exceed expectations,” said Mitchell Weinstein, president of Chuhak & Tecson. “He enjoys discovering and executing creative solutions when there is no obvious way to proceed.”

A graduate of Emory University who earned his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law, Bloomberg says that he has grown both personally and professionally during his years practicing at the firm.

“For these last eight years I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to grow my practice alongside a strong and talented group of attorneys at Chuhak & Tecson,” Bloomberg said. “Because of the firm’s entrepreneurial approach to providing legal services, I’ve experienced exponential growth in my areas of practice.”

Sethna is the leader of Chuhak & Tecson’s 33-attorney Banking Group in Chicago and New York. She serves as a trusted advisor to banks and other financial institutions, hedge funds, private equity and FinTech firms, as well as real estate investors and small business owners who rely upon her stabilizing wealth of legal knowledge in the financial industry to document intricate transactions and dynamic enforcement proceedings.

An alumna of The John Marshall Law School and Providence College, Sethna helps her clients structure and document secured transactions, manage and monitor distressed credits, and navigate complex commercial litigation, business reorganizations, workouts and other matters of insolvency. In leadership roles at the firm and in her practice Sethna is a proven pillar of the community, serving the needs of several philanthropic organizations and raising millions of dollars for charitable causes.

“Eileen’s legal acumen and leadership skills make her an indispensable asset for the firm and for our expanding roster of financial clients and business owners,” Weinstein said. “Under her stewardship, our banking practice has seen steady growth, both in Chicago and in New York. That doesn’t happen by accident—it is because clients know they can rely upon Eileen.”

Sethna said, “Our firm is unique in that we provide clients with technical and legal depth and yet we never lose the personal counsel that they value when seeking advice, options or innovative solutions. Since we embrace our clients’ business goals, their successes are also our successes.”

Glubisz is an experienced transactional attorney who handles a wide array of matters for banks and other financial institutions, as well as commercial real estate investors and developers and other small business owners. A John Marshall Law School and Loyola University of Chicago graduate, Glubisz has extensive experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating loan documents, contracts, commercial leases and a considerable amount of other legal documents. This experience gives him a unique perspective to counsel his clients from all sides of the table.

Weinstein says that Glubisz exemplifies what it means to be an attorney at Chuhak & Tecson.

“What Andrew enjoys most about practicing law is being a trusted advisor and problem solver,” said Weinstein. “He personifies the importance of hard work and accountability, aligning with the firm’s values.”

Glubisz, an active member of Chicago’s Ukrainian-American community, says mentors within the firm continue to play an integral part in his practice development.

“Chuhak & Tecson’s collaborative culture has helped me to build my practice to where it is today,” Glubisz said. “The firm has a strong, supportive environment which makes it possible for attorneys to reach their career goals.”
