Alex Jacobs has joined Goodwin Procter in Los Angeles as a partner in the real estate practice. Previously on the executive committee at Pircher, where he practiced for 17 years, Alex built out a practice representing commercial owners and developers. He advises private and institutional investors, owners, and developers in connection with the acquisition, disposition, development and financing of commercial real estate properties. He also negotiates and structures complex joint venture agreements between sponsors and capital providers and represents clients for residential development, multifamily residential projects, office buildings, and hotels and resorts. “Alex’s practice complements the skillsets of our existing real estate and hospitality industry team on the West Coast and having him on board further positions us as one of the dominant real estate industry practices in the United States and Europe,” said Dean Pappas, chair of Goodwin’s Los Angeles office, in a statement.
