Leading Florida Law Firm Najmy Thompson Launches One World Trade Center New York Office

Matthew M. Clark, NYU Law Grad, past Masonite and Amana General Counsel, Joins Firm to Manage Manhattan Expansion

NEW YORK, NY/BRADENTON, FL, OCTOBER 2018/PR NEWSWIRE: Najmy Thompson L.P.,, a leading real estate, corporate, and wealth management law firm with three Florida offices, announces the opening of its New York office located at One World Trade Center, 85th floor, New York, NY. Matthew M. Clark, the former Senior Vice-President and General Counsel of Masonite International, has been tasked with the management of the New York office.

“As a native of New York and a graduate of Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, Najmy Thompson is excited to launch our newest office in New York City.” said Joseph Najmy, the Firm’s Managing Partner. “The real estate sector of our practice, and the domestic and international clients we serve who require support services in New York and Florida, have created the need for an office in New York City.”

Najmy Thompson, P.L. serves a select clientele on the west coast of Florida including Sarasota, Bradenton, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Naples, and surrounding areas. The firm offers a broad spectrum real estate practice representing clients in real estate matters involving commercial and high-end residential purchases and sales, closing and title services, leisure & vacation property transactions, providing turnkey developer and lender representation and support, commercial and industrial leasing, zoning, land use, entitles, real estate portfolio management, regulatory disputes, community association related issues and general civil litigation. Najmy Thompson’s most recent victory includes a seven figure settlement for a prominent Florida developer in a hard fought federal lawsuit against a local city for their unjust regulatory conduct.

The Firm is also a recognized leader in providing corporate tax, estate planning, and wealth management services for both domestic and international clients, and has recently launched a rapidly growing civil and criminal appellate practice. The Firm is recognized and respected in Florida real estate circles for its extensive charitable work and award-winning title insurance service, and is actively involved in local, state, and national legislative issues and land use reform.

“Our expansion into the New York market is a homecoming for me.” commented co-founding Partner Louis Najmy, a graduate of New York Law School and former editor of its Law Review “I began my legal career in New York City, and I am looking forward to once again practicing law in the city. We have been searching for a while to find the right person to lead our expansion. We are fortunate to recruit Matthew; his deep experience and outstanding credentials make him the perfect fit for this job.”

Mr. Clark brings to the Firm 35 years of proven success as an e-commerce and global business lawyer. His dual specialties include negotiation/deal-making and litigation management/dispute resolution, always with a focus on building enterprise value. He graduated from NYU’s School of Law and Stern Graduate School of Business, where he earned his MBA in Finance with top honors. He most recently served as Senior Vice President & General Counsel of Masonite International, the world’s largest doormaker, owned by KKR and other private equity leaders before going public. Previously, Matthew served as General Counsel for Amana Refrigeration and Hitachi Home Electronics (America) and as Senior Transactions Counsel for GE Consumer & Industrial.
