Holly’s practice includes commercial leasing, commercial finance, acquisitions, dispositions, and general real estate matters. She spends the majority of her time representing tenants in commercial leasing matters and lenders in commercial finance matters.

She first joined MPS Law as a law clerk while attending law school at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago-Kent College of Law, and she became an associate attorney at MPS Law in September 2014.

Leasing Experience
Holly represents tenants and corporate users across the United States and Canada with their negotiations of leases, subleases, license agreements, lease assignments, subordination and non-disturbance agreements, estoppels, and lease guaranties for office and industrial spaces. She helps her clients handle their leasing portfolios by not only negotiating their lease documents for new and existing premises, but by also interpreting their existing leases and helping clients apply the lease provisions to any situations that arise. She also negotiates co-working membership agreements on behalf of corporate users for co-working space and exclusive space at co-working facilities.

Lending Experience
Holly represents various financial institutions and lenders in connection with commercial finance transactions and real estate based construction, acquisition, and refinance loans, including loans for multifamily residential buildings, office buildings, memory care facilities, shopping centers, industrial buildings, and hotels. She also represents national lenders making acquisition and development loans and revolving lines of credit to residential homebuilders across the United States. Holly works on all aspects of the loan transactions including drafting and negotiating the loan documents, reviewing the property and borrower due diligence, and coordinating the closing.

“Leaner in numbers, deeper in talent, and united by an uncompromising commitment to put our clients’ interests first and last.”
