News Brief Find out if this Firm is Hiring

Los Angeles 

Overall Review:  I spent a summer here and this seems like a great firm. They are very relaxed and invite everyone in the room to be a part of a discussion - not just audience members for the partners. The parters and senior associates seem to be very involved in mentoring more junior lawyers and helping them understand the process. Not too many screamers (every firm has a few) and there is very much a "team effort" within the practices that I worked with.

Overall Quality of this Firm

Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Marmaro LLP (JMBM), one of California's foremost full-service law firms, has announced that a team comprised of their Real Estate, Corporate, Finance, Tax and Land Use attorneys advised the California State Automobile Association (CSAA) in their negotiations for a site near Walnut Creek, California for the relocation of their headquarters in San Francisco.

The JMBM team, led by Martin H. "Marty" Orlick, helped negotiate for CSAA a 255,000 square-foot, six-story build-to-suit lease with a purchase option, with Equity Office Properties, which was acquired earlier this year by Blackstone Group, L.P.

"This is a visionary move by CSAA," said Orlick who specializes in complex real estate transactions. "The move will better enable them to operate like the forward-thinking company they are."

The transaction required expertise involving leasing, tax, land use, construction, and finance. Construction on the 255,000-square-foot building near a BART transit station is scheduled to begin early in 2008 and be

Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Marmaro LLP (JMBM), one of California’s foremost full-service law firms, today announced that it closed a 5.9 million-square-foot real estate transaction for its client, Arden Realty Limited Partnership, from affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Acquisitions V LLC. The portfolio of office buildings in the purchase spans six West Coast markets, including San Francisco, Orange County, San Diego, Seattle, Portland and Salt Lake City, and represents Arden's largest acquisition to date.

"An acquisition of this size establishes a significant real estate footprint for Arden on the West Coast, including the Pacific Northwest," said JMBM real estate partner Scott M. Kalt, who brings more than 19 years of real estate experience to the transaction. "It was a challenging transaction involving over two months of intensive legal work to secure the acquisition rights and perform the necessary due diligence analysis, which included a variety of real estate, land use and tax issues."

Comprised of more than 20 lawyers, JMBM's Real Estate Group is seasoned in all aspects of real estate acquisition, disposition, leasing, financing, development, construction, joint venture structuring, land use and related areas. The Firm's veteran real estate attorneys have the experience necessary to identify potential problem areas and to help clients structure and negotiate intricate business transactions ranging from the ordinary to the most complex.

"The magnitude of this deal required an experienced legal team that we could trust to ultimately close a multi-facetted transaction," said David Swartz, Arden Realty's Senior Vice President and General Counsel. "Having represented Arden for the past 15 years, we were confident that JMBM possessed the legal prowess necessary to make this significant acquisition a reality."
