How I represent clients at Schwabe
I work with clients to reach prompt and practical solutions to fit their real estate and business objectives. My work encompasses real estate development, financing, acquisition, due diligence, asset management, facilities management, construction, commercial property leasing, and general company contracts.
I have represented national companies in commercial real estate purchases and leasing transactions and have directly handled the negotiation and closing of hundreds of complex real estate development transactions nationwide. I have also represented lenders in documenting and closing multimillion-dollar commercial property development financing transactions. I have organized and overseen real estate related due diligence for successful multimillion-dollar corporate financings with hundreds of collateral properties.
Before joining Schwabe, I was with a prominent law firm in Vancouver, Washington, and previously was the Assistant General Counsel of Real Estate for Knowledge Universe Education.
