Craig A. Domalewski, most recently senior counsel to Gov. Chris Christie, today rejoined Cranford-based law firm Dughi & Hewitt P.C. as a principal member, resulting in the firm’s name change to Dughi, Hewit & Domalewski.
Christie, who practiced with Domalewski at Dughi & Hewit before serving as the state’s U.S. attorney, described him in an announcement as “a gifted lawyer who made significant contributions to my administration.”
Prior to serving in the Christie administration, Domalewski was a partner at Dughi & Hewit, where he represented hospitals and physicians in commercial disputes, regulatory and compliance issues, and hospital/practice group transactions.
“Craig’s experience in Trenton will be an asset for the firm, and his return to the firm underscores our commitment to providing the highest quality legal service to our clients,” said John Dughi, founding partner, in a release.
In Trenton, Domalewski provided advice and counsel to Christie and Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa, who then served as chief counsel to the governor, on a wide array of legislative, legal, regulatory and policy initiatives. Christie and Chiesa were partners at Dughi & Hewit before leaving the firm when Christie was appointed U.S. attorney in 2002.
