Leading law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP has announced a significant addition to the firm’s Real Estate practice in California with a six-attorney group joining its Los Angeles office. The group is led by partner Richard C. Mendelson and includes partners Andrew E. Shiner and Stacy N. Paek and three associates. All were previously practicing at DLA Piper.

“We are happy to welcome this exceptionally talented group of lawyers to our national real estate practice,” said Seyfarth Shaw Real Estate Department Chair Paul Mattingly. “Richard’s team provides us with exceptional depth for our California Real Estate team, deepens our institutional real estate bench and further validates Seyfarth Shaw’s position as a premier real estate practice nationally. From a market perspective, we are committed to having a top tier Real Estate Department, and the recovering market provides us with opportunities to have a major impact not only in California, but across the country.”

Ray Kepner, Seyfarth Shaw’s Downtown Los Angeles Office Managing Partner added, “The firm remains committed to continued growth in Southern California across the broad spectrum of our national practices. Richard and Andrew are highly regarded real estate attorneys with a reputation for performing sophisticated work at the highest level. The added presence of their team will allow us to better serve clients with diverse skill sets, and we are happy to have them join our roster of Los Angeles attorneys.”

“A cohesive firm that runs more like a true partnership, Seyfarth possesses a proven national platform to engage our practice,” said Mendelson. “We are delighted to join one of the largest real estate practices in the country, allowing us to play a significant role on the West Coast market and elsewhere.”
