here is the 2007 version
New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name TestDDG -RecipientFilter { ((Alias -eq 'jim') -or (((((Company -eq 'Contoso') -and (((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -or (((RecipientType -eq 'MailUniversalDistributionGroup') -or (RecipientType -eq 'MailUniversalSecurityGroup') -or (RecipientType -eq 'MailNonUniversalGroup') -or (RecipientType -eq 'DynamicDistributionGroup'))))))) -and (-not(Name -like 'SystemMailbox{*')) -and (-not(Name -like 'CAS_{*')) ))) }

Try with this command :

New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name yourDLName -OrganizationalUnit contoso.com/Users -RecipientFilter { ((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox')  and (Company -eq 'yourcompanyname')  or (customAttribute1 -eq 'yourvalue')) }
For that one use assumption here is to add customAttribute1 value to 'yourvalue'  .

you can then validate the dynamic distribution group

$group = Get-DynamicDistributionGroup testddg
Get-Recipient -RecipientPreviewFilter $group.recipientfilter
