Erica Bose is a transactional attorney who focuses on a broad array of real estate transactions ranging from acquisitions and dispositions to land bank (off balance sheet) financings as well as other transactions relating to the development of land, primarily in the residential context but also in commercial.  

Erica’s clients come to her for both her legal acumen and ability to give practical and sound legal advice, motivated by her understanding of her clients’ business objectives. She has built a reputation both in California and at a national level for representing developers and builders of all sizes in connection with complex real estate transactions involving acquisitions, dispositions, general land development matters, and land bank financing.  She has also carved out a niche over the last 20 years representing land bankers with a strong national presence in connection with their acquisition, financing and development of land entitled for residential purposes.  During that time, she has also advised land bankers on how to manage and/or dispose of assets when builders exercised early termination of these transactions during the last recession.  Such experience has only enhanced Erica’s capabilities in this expanding industry and provided them with extensive knowledge of market terms and trends.
