Kathy practices real estate law, with a focus on leasing and development and redevelopment of retail, mixed-use, office, and warehouse and industrial projects on behalf of developers, landlords, and tenants. Her experience includes adaptive re-use, urban in-fill, transportation-oriented development, and big box, outparcel, and large office and industrial leases.
Kathy frequently advises clients on the conversion of retail centers to mixed-use developments and the conversion of under-utilized parking lots to outparcel and perimeter developments. She drafts and negotiates ground leases, build-to-suit leases, and existing building leases nationally, including locations in shopping center outparcels, strip centers, and industrial sites.
Kathy has over eleven years of in-house real estate counsel experience, representing both developer/landlords—including shopping center, mixed-use developments, REIT, its private subsidiaries, and joint ventures— and tenants—such as the world’s largest tire sales and auto service retailer.
Before joining MPS, Kathy was of-counsel at a nationally known real estate boutique firm. Before her in-house work, Kathy was a partner at another nationally known real estate boutique firm based in Chicago.
