Seyfarth Shaw Strengthens Its Real Estate Litigation Practice

Seyfarth Shaw LLP Partner John Domby

Seyfarth Shaw LLP has announced the arrival of Partner John Domby to the firm’s Real Estate Department in Charlotte, North Carolina. Domby joins Seyfarth from Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, where he was a Partner in the firm’s Real Estate Finance and Lending Practice.

“John is another key step in our strategic plans to grow our national real estate practice and Charlotte office,” said Paul Mattingly, National Chair of Seyfarth’s Real Estate Department. “In particular, John has a leading Charlotte-based originations practice that fits extremely well with the current footprint of the firm, and we are excited to welcome him to the team.”

A real estate finance attorney with deep experience in all phases of the economic cycle, from originations to loan workouts, Domby advises banks and funds on structured commercial real estate financings, with an emphasis on closing new originations of floating-rate bridge loans and securitized (CMBS) loans.

Domby also represents Wall Street lenders in connection with a variety of commercial real estate financing transactions, including origination of mortgage and mezzanine loans, loan modifications, and asset management. He also routinely oversees portfolio transactions and other transactions with heavy property-level diligence issues.

“We are thrilled to have John join our growing real estate department in Charlotte,” said Fritz Smith, Co-Managing Partner of Seyfarth’s Charlotte office. “John’s skillset, goals, and practice align precisely with those of our national real estate practice, and the firm more broadly. He brings a diverse stable of clients, and his major clients are all institutional players, some of whom are existing firm clients.”

Seyfarth opened its Charlotte office in 2019 in large part because Charlotte’s financial industry has become an important business hub for many of the firm’s clients.

“Seyfarth has an impressive roster of clients across the real estate spectrum,” added Domby. “The firm is an ideal fit for me to continue to build my practice and to work alongside an impressive group of attorneys to assist clients with their most complex and novel real estate matters.”

With more than 900 lawyers across 18 offices, Seyfarth Shaw provides top-tier advisory, litigation, and transactional legal services to clients worldwide.
