DLA Piper is pleased to announce that partner Thanos Matthai was named a 2023 New Leader in the Law by Law.com as part of its inaugural New England Legal Awards. The list honors lawyers under age 40 who have excelled in their legal practice, in client service and cultivation, in service to bar associations and in pro bono work.
A partner in DLA Piper’s Boston office, Matthai advises institutional real estate investment advisors, REITs, investment funds and developers on all aspects of commercial real estate transactions across the United States. He regularly works on property acquisition, development and financing transactions for single properties and large portfolios, and he has a particular focus on joint ventures and complex financing structures.
