Derek Domian will continue to focus his business litigation practice on a broad range of complex commercial, real estate, leasing, professional liability, and intellectual property disputes.

Domian received his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School and his B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of New Hampshire.

Melissa Rivers will continue to build her real estate practice, which supports clients across all aspects of commercial real estate transactions, including acquisitions, leasing, financing, and dispositions. She also serves as Co-Chair of the firm’s Retail Industry Group. Rivers has been involved in many complex projects including multi-property acquisitions and dispositions, commercial condominium structures, development and leasing of mixed-use projects, and financing of shopping centers. She received her J.D. from Suffolk University Law School, her M.A. from Emerson College, and her B.A. from Suffolk University.

Eric Seltzer will continue to grow his global real estate practice, which focuses on a wide array of commercial real estate transactions, including acquisitions, dispositions, developments, financings, joint ventures, preferred equity investments, and recapitalizations. He counsels institutions, operators, developers, entrepreneurs, and tenants in complex commercial real estate transactions in connection with a broad range of asset types, such as office buildings, life sciences properties, hotels, mixed-use properties, multifamily developments, and industrial properties. Seltzer received his J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University and his B.A., summa cum laude, from Syracuse University.
