Allen Matkins Lures Tax Lawyer Back From Chevron

Scott M. Dommes in Law360

Law360 (June 6, 2017) Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP has lured an in-house lawyer from Chevron Corp. back to the law firm, a re-hire that boosts its tax and real estate joint venture practice in Los Angeles. Scott Dommes recently re-joined Allen Matkins after a roughly one-year stint at Chevron as in-house tax counsel. At Chevron, he did significant tax planning work, both on domestic and international matters. He said it was Allen Matkins' strength in complex real estate joint venture work as well as the firm's ability to handle high-profile deals that drew him back to the firm. And also a certain "family" aspect of the firm. "Allen Matkins for me, I feel like it's a family. It really is that way. When I left it felt like I was leaving a family," he said. "That's a huge part of it for me."
