[Updated at 6:00 p.m. with comments from Golub] Laurie Golub, the former general counsel and managing director of business affairs for Africa Israel, has landed a new position as general counsel and chief operating officer of HFZ Capital, HFZ said today.

Golub will play an integral role at HFZ as it “moves ahead on a number of new and exciting development projects in both New York City and elsewhere,” HFZ founder Ziel Feldman said in a statement.

During her three years at Africa Israel, Golub restructured debt at properties including the Times Square Building, the Clock Tower and the Miami Marquis, and oversaw the sale of its largest assets including the Times Square Building office condo, the Clock Tower and 88 Leonard Street, according to HFZ.

Prior to joining AFI USA, she served as associate general counsel at Forest City Ratner Companies, where she was involved in the pre-development of the $5-billion Atlantic Yards project and negotiated and closed the acquisition of the New Jersey Nets basketball franchise.

Golub said she was attracted to HFZ for the quality of its deals: “The quality of the transactions they have been able to achieve sets them apart in the real estate development community,” she said. “I am looking forward to working alongside this talented team where I am confident that my diverse background, experiences and relationships will add to the already outstanding capabilities that exist at HFZ.”

In last month’s issue of The Real Deal, Golub spoke about the adoption of her one-year-old daughter Jayda Jynx, a decision which she said was the “happiest thing” she’d ever done.
