"We are thrilled that Justin has joined our real estate practice group," said Richard S. Nikchevich, Real Estate Group Co-Chair. "Justin is exactly the kind of candidate we look for. He is not only exceptionally bright, well-credentialed and experienced, but he has already impressed us with his 'can do' attitude. The market for lateral real estate hires is extremely competitive, and we're very pleased that we are able to attract and retain candidates of Justin’s and Ashley’s caliber. This is critical as we continue to expand our real estate practice."
