Adam is the Chair of the Capital Markets Team. Since joining the firm in 1993, he has represented borrowers and lenders in all facets of real estate finance.
Structuring Complex Real Estate Deals
His lending clientele ranges from local banks to some of the larger banking institutions in the United States, along with insurance companies and private lenders. On the borrower side, Adam represents local developers, institutional owners of real estate, and public and private REITs. The spectrum of real estate products on which he has worked includes raw land, retail, office, multi-family, hotel and timeshare, and simple and complex, fee and ground leased premises. In connection with both transactions, he often is called about to structure for (and in the capacity of representing lenders, splitting loans to accommodate) mezzanine and senior secured real estate facilities. Adam also has extensive experience in workouts and loan amendments, having started his career as a bankruptcy attorney in the early 1990s.
Local Counsel, International Experience
Adam prides himself on having a team of lawyers that can handle large and smaller loans. Staffing efficiencies allow him and his team to represent both lenders and borrowers in loans ranging as low as a few million dollars, while still having the resources and experience to handle loans that routinely exceed $100 million. Although a resident in Los Angeles and having handled a multitude of California transactions, he acts as lead counsel on transactions throughout the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
