NEW YORK (June X, 2017) – Loeb & Loeb LLP announced today that Lisa A. Gootee has joined the firm’s New York office as a partner in the Real Estate Department. Most recently, Gootee practiced in the New York office of Haynes & Boone, LLP.
“Lisa is a smart and talented transactional attorney whose market knowledge and deal making skills will be a terrific asset to our clients,” commented Raymond A. Sanseverino, chair of Loeb & Loeb’s Real Estate Department. “Her substantial experience in real estate financings, acquisitions and developments adds to our full-service capabilities, and her client-first approach makes her a great fit for our team.”
Gootee focuses in commercial real estate finance matters, including the origination and restructuring of mortgage and mezzanine loans. She also has extensive experience with the acquisition and development of commercial and multifamily residential properties. Her practice includes the representation of equity clients in acquisitions of large portfolios of hotels and other commercial properties.
“On the heels of Loeb’s addition of real estate litigators Gil Feder and Evan Farber last month, Lisa’s arrival further strengthens our first rate real estate platform in New York and nationwide,” said Loeb & Loeb Chairman Michael D. Beck. “We are very pleased to welcome her.”
“Loeb is a leader in the New York real estate market, and the firm’s national reputation and resources presented an attractive opportunity for me to enhance and expand my practice,” said Gootee. “I’m excited to join the ranks of this impressive team.”
Prior to her tenure at Haynes & Boone, Gootee spent two and a half years in the public sector as counsel to the New York State Homeless Housing & Assistance Corporation, a New York public benefit corporation that provides financing to not-for-profit corporations and municipalities to construct homeless housing. Previously, she practiced with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
Gootee received her J.D. from the Albany School of Law, magna cum laude, and also served as Associate Editor of the Albany Law Review. She earned her B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin.
