Within: Real estate

Baker Botts L.L.P. leverages strong transactional capabilities in advising a cross-section of clients on a range of real estate issues. The firm recently strengthened its West Coast presence with the relocation of practice head Patricia Stanton to San Francisco, and has substantially increased its volume of California-based transactions over the last year. Other key areas of focus include advising real estate funds and other fund sponsors on fund formation, and assisting with construction projects spanning utility systems, bridges, roads and water treatment centers. The team recently advised on the liquidation and dissolution of Hines Real Estate Investment Trust, a matter involving the sale of seven West Coast office assets for $1.16bn to an affiliate of Blackstone, and acted for Dakota Pacific Real Estate Partners in its $40m acquisition of the membership interests of Cottonwood Partners, Och-Ziff and EsNet in order to purchase a portfolio of Utah-based properties. The Delta Pacific matters were handled by Kimberly Schlanger, Brayton Dresser and Stephen Marcus, who are based in Houston, New York and Dallas respectively; Houston-based Paul Landen is involved in much of the work done for key client Hines.
