Her work involves drafting and negotiating legal documents including leases, purchase and sale agreements, loan documents, joint venture agreements, easements, construction and architecture agreements, and employment law documents.
Luann began her legal career 31 years ago as an attorney for a local boutique real estate law firm and spent the next 18 years in multi-office international law firms focusing on complex real estate transactions for lenders, developers, landlords and investors. She went in-house and served as counsel and vice-president of the J.E. Robert Company, and then as corporate counsel for Stanley Martin Companies. Her enthusiasm for the industry began with a desire to work on exciting real estate transactions and to learn about real estate developments, joint ventures, financing, real estate markets, architecture, and construction law.
