What do you focus on?

Real Estate

I work with various clients to negotiate real estate transactions—including acquisitions, sales and leases—and conduct due diligence relevant to client needs. Much of my real estate work has centered on large, mixed-use properties in California, including downtown Los Angeles.


I work with lending institutions and borrowers on asset-based and tax credit financing transactions. I had the opportunity to work on the “New Markets Tax Credit Transaction of the Year” in 2016, which provided skilled manufacturing and job training in northern Indiana. I also help private and charter schools across California get the credit they need for building projects and operations.

Land Use

In addition to transactional work, I help our clients entitle their property and provide guidance on local zoning laws and the California Environmental Quality Act. I deal with historic resources, navigate environmental impact reports and work with city officials to get results for our clients.

What do you see on the horizon?

Technological advancements—such as autonomous vehicles and drone shipping—will drive significant changes in real estate and transportation infrastructure, as well as influence and interact with the trend toward urbanism.
