With a solid in-house background in real estate development, Brandi gets client deals done.

Brandi’s first job after college found her in a legal assistant role at a real estate development firm, and she quickly discovered that she adored real estate work. She loved the fast pace, the energy, and the proactive problem-solving, and she took great satisfaction in watching major property deals come together from the ground up. Brandi immediately knew that she wanted to build her career in real estate law and soon enrolled in law school, returning to the development firm after earning her J.D. Her history with the organization meant that she gained hands-on experience overseeing deals very early in her legal career, negotiating with brokers and tenants for major commercial projects and leases in her first years as an associate.

Today, Brandi represents developers, lenders, landlords, and tenants in commercial real estate projects throughout the Southeast. Her experience includes acquisitions, dispositions, construction, easements, restrictions, financing, and 1031 investments, but she is particularly focused on leasing work, as well as representation of private equity lenders. Her leasing experience includes representation of both landlords and tenants, giving her valuable insight into the other side’s likely concerns and sticking points.

Clients appreciate Brandi’s firsthand knowledge of real estate development: having worked hand-in-hand with developers earlier in her career, she knows where deals are likely to fall apart—and how to prevent obstacles from the beginning. Brandi is also known for bringing clients creative solutions: she never presents a problem without also suggesting resolution options. She is a firm believer that a deal can always be done.
