Courtney Rangen Joins the Firm as a Partner


Courtney K. Rangen has joined the firm as a new lateral partner. Ms. Rangen comes to Pircher from Sidley Austin LLP’s (Sidley) Los Angeles office where she was a member of its real estate practice for nearly 12 years and a partner for three of those years. At Pircher, Ms. Rangen will serve a broad range of clients within the real estate sector in addition to supporting the firm’s growing institutional lending practice.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome Courtney to our team,” said John Irons, partner at Pircher and member of the firm’s Executive Committee. “She is a highly skilled lawyer who will bring tremendous value to our clients and help support our expanding national institutional lending practice.”

Throughout her multifaceted career, Ms. Rangen has represented a variety of institutional lenders, real estate funds, opportunity funds and other real estate investors nationwide. Transactions she represented during her time at Sidley included sale-leasebacks, mortgage and mezzanine financings, leasings, joint ventures and purchase and sale transactions involving single assets, multi-property portfolios and equity interests. Her specialties in real estate law include representing purchasers, borrowers and lenders in transactions involving residential non-performing mortgage loans and REOs, as well as single family rental transactions.

By joining Pircher, Ms. Rangen will reunite with two of her former colleagues, Erin Natter and Aimee Contreras-Camua.

“I’m looking forward to rejoining both Erin and Aimee and having the opportunity to work with the rest of the Pircher team,” added Ms. Rangen. “Erin, Aimee and I have a strong track record working together and have proven time and time again that we can provide superior legal services to our clients and help them navigate complex challenges that institutional lenders and other real estate clients are facing nationwide.”

Ms. Rangen has supported the broader legal community over the years as a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and member of the planning committee for the National Association of Women Lawyers Annual Meeting in 2017 and 2018. She was recently recognized for her work in real estate law when she was named to the Who’s Who Legal: Real Estate 2016 guide.

Ms. Rangen earned her J.D. from Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where she served as the articles editor for the Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies. She received her B.A. from the University of Michigan.
