Thompson Coburn adds James Inendino as real estate partner in Chicago

March 28, 2018

Thompson Coburn LLP is pleased to announce the addition of James Inendino as a partner in its real estate practice in Chicago. Inendino joins from Roetzel & Andress, where he was partner-in-charge of the Chicago office. His practice focuses on commercial and real estate finance, workouts, restructurings, and real estate transactions.

“Thompson Coburn has very distinguished and vast real estate and finance  practices that are well-known in Chicago and nationally,” Inendino said. “I am thrilled to find a new home for my practice that will allow me to enhance my existing client relationships while offering additional services.”

Inendino joins 15 other attorneys in the firm’s Chicago office who practice in real estate, real estate land use and zoning, and real estate tax. The firm’s diverse  real estate client roster includes real estate lenders and capital equity market providers, Fortune 500 companies, as well as a variety of institutional business clients nationwide. 

Inendino’s experience includes representing national, regional, and local financial institutions and borrowers in secured and unsecured lending transactions. His real estate lending representation includes hospitality, commercial and residential new construction, office, shopping center, and other retail properties.

His commercial real estate transaction experience includes the representation of industrial, retail, commercial, and residential property developers in all phases of development, including acquisition, disposition, financing, zoning, construction, development, and leasing.

Inendino’s addition is the latest in a recent wave of lateral partner hires at Thompson Coburn. In February, the firm added Mark Belongia from Duane Morris as a business litigation partner in Chicago whose practice focuses on banking regulatory work. 

Chicago isn’t the only market where Thompson Coburn has seen recent lateral growth. Also in February, business litigation partner Geoff Coll and intellectual property partner Ed Gray joined the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.
