Lindsey H. Barr

Associate

Overview

As an associate specializing in real estate acquisitions, sales, and joint ventures, Lindsey efficiently structures, negotiates and closes a variety of complex real estate transactions. Though she represents some of the largest public and private equity providers, homebuilders and real estate developers in the country, Lindsey also takes great pride in even the smallest transaction – striving to be an enthusiastic and invested advocate for each and every client with whom she has the opportunity to work.

Representing Owners, Developers And Capital Providers In Purchase and Sale, Joint Ventures And Land Bank Arenas

Lindsey represents master developers, merchant builders, and developers of unentitled land with their acquisition, disposition, and development of real estate assets. Her practice primarily focuses on drafting and negotiating purchase and sale agreements, development covenants, conditions and restrictions, profit participation agreements, development management agreements, cost sharing agreements, easements, licenses and other critical documents required in connection with real estate development, spearheading due diligence efforts while providing practical guidance to her clients through the feasibility review process, as well as coordinating organized and efficient closings.

She also works with buyers and sellers in connection with the purchase and sale of both developed and undeveloped industrial, commercial and mixed-use sites, and with equity providers in the negotiation of joint venture transactions as well as land bank finance transactions associated with the acquisition of real estate assets nation-wide.

A Leader Among Her Peers

Lindsey is an active member of many professional organizations and trade groups, including the Urban Land Institute where she is currently involved in the YLG Partnership Forum and participates in various leadership courses and conferences throughout the year. In addition, as a member of the NAIOP SoCal Young Professional Group, Class of 2017-2018, Lindsey recently led her team to victory in the annual CapRock Cup Case Competition by presenting the most impressive “highest and best use” of an under-utilized site to the City of Long Beach. And as one of only five real estate professionals selected in California, and only twenty-five selected nationwide, Lindsey recently received the first annual Connect Media Next Generation Award as recognition for her “talent, drive and fresh ideas” demonstrated within the real estate industry.

While at UCLA School of Law, Lindsey co-founded and served as Co-President of the Real Estate Law Association (RELA) in connection with the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate. She was also Editor-in-Chief of the UCLA Entertainment Law Review and was designated a member of the Order of the Coif, graduating in the top 10% of her class.
