With European and global banking roots, Jane possesses keen insight into the complexities of real estate deals and the critical issues for their stakeholders. Bringing a broad range of experience to commercial real estate and finance transactions, she represents investors, financial institutions, investment funds, and other clients in single-asset and portfolio transactions.

Jane’s work encompasses all aspects of real estate transactions, including joint ventures, acquisitions and dispositions, leasing and portfolio property management, with a particular focus on structuring debt and equity transactions. She is experienced in all types of asset classes, including office, construction, retail, mixed-use, hotels and resorts, multifamily (including co-living) and industrial. A significant portion of the firm clients she represents are composed of alternative or non-bank lenders, which have found opportunity and transaction volume due to the ongoing market conditions and the evolving regulatory environment. 

Jane advises lenders, capital partners, as well as borrowers in complex mortgage financings as well as in mezzanine, preferred equity, and other highly structured capital transactions. She is well versed in construction financings, leasehold mortgage financings, syndications, co-lending and loan participations, and has counseled clients on loan workouts and restructurings. Additionally, she has experience in representing clients in the origination of mortgage loans for the issuance of commercial mortgage backed securities and has experience in other capital markets transactions including repurchase agreements and warehouse facilities. Her perspective in these areas is enhanced by her prior role as a director in the transaction management team of the European commercial real estate group at Deutsche Bank AG, London.
