Amelia’s practice focuses on commercial leasing and the purchase and sale of commercial properties nationwide. With over a decade of experience in the commercial real estate arena as both in-house and outside counsel, Amelia has a sophisticated understanding of the myriad of issues that arise in connection with the acquisition, operation, and disposition of commercial properties.
As in-house counsel for a pre-eminent mid-size regional developer, Amelia handled the initial lease up and addressed ongoing legal needs for a number of complicated mixed-use projects, managed outside counsel in connection with litigation matters and worked closely with the property management team to address day-to-day operational issues. In her role as General Counsel and Director of Real Estate for a Northeast restaurant chain, she was involved with site selection, leasing, acquisitions and day-to-day operational issues. In both instances, Amelia “lived” with her deals long after they were signed. This experience has afforded Amelia a unique perspective that helps her cut to the chase and to efficiently and effectively bring even the most complicated deals to a successful close.
Amelia has also handled the purchase and sale of numerous shopping centers, office buildings, industrial properties and stand-alone NNN properties. In connection therewith, she has put together joint ventures, private placements, and cured complicated title issues.
