Jenner & Block Grows Real Estate Transaction Team in Chicago with Jim Reiland’s Return to Big-Law

Jenner & Block Jenner & Block has grown its real estate transaction team with the addition of Jim Reiland, who previously served as Chief Legal and Administrative Officer of CA Student Living, Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel of CA Ventures, and as a partner at two AmLaw 50 firms.

“Jim brings incredible experience to the firm from his previous work as a commercial litigator and then as the chief legal officer of a real estate investment and development company with more than $10 billion in assets under management internationally,” said Co-Managing Partners Katya Jestin and Randy Mehrberg. “Our clients will benefit from his perspective as a former general counsel and the scope of his work, encompassing real estate development, corporate operations, and transactions of all varieties.”

In his previous work at two AmLaw 50 firms, Jim first-chaired complex commercial litigation across the country on behalf of Fortune 500 clients in multiple sectors. His experiences inform his real estate transactional practice, where he draws on his deep understanding of the interplay of contracts and litigation in the execution of equity investments and real estate transactions valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

“Real estate transactions entail complex capital investment structuring,” said Michelle McAtee, a Co-Chair of the Real Estate Transactions Practice. “The associated partnerships and joint-venture agreements are similar to private equity, with each deal structured as a standalone entity with an individual capital source. Jim’s knowledge of these complex transactions will be in demand in our growing practice, and we are delighted that he has joined the firm.”

Jenner & Block’s Real Estate Transactions Industry Group is recognized by Chambers USA for its skill across “all aspects of sophisticated real estate deals” and "notable expertise in structuring financing vehicles and handling complex acquisitions, dispositions, and leases.”

“Jenner & Block is an industry leader in the real estate transactions space. For companies interacting with alternative capital sources, there is a clear need for experienced counsel and specialized legal services,” Jim said. “I’m thrilled to be joining a firm where I can work across specializations to deliver comprehensive service and solutions to clients.”
