Thompson Coburn is pleased to welcome partner Justin Newman to its real estate practice group. He was previously a partner with Field and Goldberg, LLC. Jeffrey Merar (previously with Field and Goldberg, LLC) has also joined Thompson Coburn as an associate.
Newman utilizes a hybrid approach to his real estate practice, including the representation of purchasers and sellers of commercial property, landlords and tenants in leasing matters, borrowers and lenders in real estate loan transactions, and also focusing on litigation and workouts. Newman’s unique blend of experience helps his clients approach their real estate matters from a wider perspective. It is typical for Newman to counsel on the entire lifecycle of a deal – from closing to financing, refinancing and enforcement actions, if necessary.
On the transactional side, Newman focuses on multi-unit residential, condominium development, and commercial real estate transactions, including handling matters pertaining to the acquisition, conveyance, financing and leasing of residential and commercial properties. He also has substantial experience in health care lending. Newman’s litigation work includes mortgage foreclosures, forcible entry and detainer actions, breach of contract actions, confession of judgment actions and post-judgment collection and enforcement actions.
Newman said he enjoys working on real estate because of its tangible and visual nature. He approaches client service by being not only responsive and available but also practical. Newman understands the importance of providing exceptional legal counsel to clients, but also that the standard legal answer is not always the most efficient one. He is equally interested in getting to the root of the business issues and advancing his clients' interests as quickly, zealously and seamlessly as possible.
Newman received his B.A. from the University of Illinois and J.D. from Washington University School of Law.
