Amber is a Chicago real estate attorney who represents purchasers, sellers, landlords, tenants, developers, owners and managers in a broad range of commercial real estate transactions.
My practice is focused on helping clients identify and manage the legal risks associated with leasing, buying, selling, managing and developing commercial real estate assets including retail shopping centers, office buildings, apartment buildings, warehouse/industrial sites and mixed-use properties throughout the United States. To achieve this, I draft and negotiate the contracts that describe the parties’ rights and obligations at a particular site, oversee diligence aimed at narrowing the unknown and coordinate with third parties to manage the closing or delivery process.
I anticipate the demand for mixed-use developments, particularly those that are centered around entertainment and food service establishments, to sharply increase as the age of the workforce in the United States declines. This demand will be driven by a number of factors, including the preference of younger workers to live and work in pedestrian-oriented urban centers, the increasing prevalence of alternative working arrangements and the rising average age of first-time parents.
