UPDATED, Tuesday, June 13, 5:05 p.m.: JLL’s Capital Markets team poached a new senior vice president from Freddie Mac Multifamily, the brokerage announced. At JLL, James McArthur will arrange financing for multifamily developers. He will work under managing director Brian Halpern and international director Brian Kelleher.

McArthur was a sales manager in the Western region at Freddie Mac Multifamily.

“As a top Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and HUD/FHA lender, we’ll be able to do much more for our clients in the Southern California market with Jim on board,” Kelleher said in a statement.

Last month, Nourmand & Associates recruited Eitan Constine. The agent was hired to join Rochelle Maize’s team at the brokerage firm out of Teles Properties Beverly Hills’ office, where he worked for two years. Prior to Teles, Constantine was an agent for Berkshire Hathaway.

Law firm Allen Matkins has promoted three of its own, electing them as new partners. Litigator Nancy Fong and Keith Pollock are based in the firm’s L.A. office, while real estate attorney Richard Miltimore works in San Diego. Their partnership is effective next month.

Fong’s expertise is in construction, employment, and financial services litigation, while Pollock focuses on leasing, acquisition, and the borrower side of finance.
