NEW YORK (September 12, 2022) — Seyfarth announced today the arrival of partner Jason Polevoy to the firm's Real Estate practice in New York. Polevoy is a broad-based real estate practitioner with comprehensive transactional experience in virtually all practice areas, and first chair acquisition/disposition, leasing, and financing experience.

"Jason is a well-rounded real estate lawyer who guides clients in complex transactions in our highest demand areas—leasing, joint ventures, development, acquisition, sales, and much more," said Paul Mattingly, partner and chair of the firm's Real Estate department. "His experience closely aligns with the core of Seyfarth's real estate practice, making Jason an incredibly valuable addition to a very busy department. We are excited to have him on the team and look forward to his contributions."

Polevoy draws on more than two decades of experience with a particular focus on the office, retail, hospitality, life science, industrial, and multifamily sectors. He has assisted clients across many different industries with commercial leasing, sales and acquisitions, joint ventures, debt and equity financing, restructurings and workouts, as well as management, construction, and architect agreements.

"Jason will play a major role in our New York-centric leasing practice," said New York office co-managing partners Lorie Almon and John Napoli in a joint statement. "With Jason's arrival, we are continuing the strategic expansion of our thriving New York real estate practice, which has become a recognized market leader in providing holistic solutions to our clients."

Polevoy joins Seyfarth from Patterson Belknap. He earned his JD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Law in 1998 and a BA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1994. Notably, Jason is the immediate past chair of the Real Property Law Committee of the New York City Bar Association.
