Firm Overview

MapWe represent many of the most well-known and active equity funds, financial institutions, venture capitalists, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), pension funds and other institutional and private investors throughout the country.

Our 60 attorneys have the combined experience and knowledge to successfully complete purchases, sales, financing, joint ventures, and private equity fund formations. We understand the issues presented by land use, environmental and tax issues and can take a project from development through leasing, and if necessary, oversee litigation and workout.

Our experience in related practice areas, namely, corporate and tax, complement our primary focus on real estate, allowing us to provide a complete array of legal services to our real estate clients.  In addition, we actively engage in monitoring and directing, on behalf of our clients, bankruptcy and litigation matters that affect their core business of transactional real estate and oversee bankruptcy and litigation counsel throughout the United States in handling proceedings involving the firm's clients.

We provide quick and efficient responses to our clients' needs through our investment in technology and education, which are integral components of our firm's culture. Our extensive document management system and cutting edge communication technologies enable us to impart information to our clients in an effective and productive manner.

The Los Angeles and Chicago offices are an integrated real estate practice, working on transactions throughout the United States and, on occasion, in foreign countries. Such integration provides an extensive collection of resources and often results in attorneys in one office teaming up with attorneys in the other office to manage transactions more efficiently and productively.
