Practice Areas

Susan J. Booth is a Los Angeles real estate attorney with a national practice focused primarily on purchase, sale and capital market transactions involving data centers, hotels, office buildings, multifamily developments, shopping centers, industrial parks, senior-living centers and mixed-use projects. Ms. Booth represents domestic and international commercial banks, pension funds, private equity funds, debt funds, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and family offices and has closed more than $1 billion in transactions in each of the past several years.

Ms. Booth's extensive capital markets experience includes both commercial mortgage-backed security (CMBS) and portfolio loans (acquisition, development, construction, revolving, bridge, term, permanent, mezzanine, EB-5 and Sharia compliant), syndication and participation arrangements, joint venture agreements and mortgage loan portfolio sales/acquisitions. Even in the best of times, a portion of her practice is dedicated to assisting mortgage and mezzanine lenders, equity players and borrowers in developing and implementing strategies to resolve the issues arising from non-performing real estate assets. She has written and spoken extensively on loan workouts, options for handling troubled real estate assets, considerations in foreclosure and navigating through California's anti-deficiency laws.

Ms. Booth also has almost three decades of experience representing clients in the acquisition and financing (as both lender and borrower) of data centers. She uses her understanding of the unique elements of the data center business to help guide clients towards a successful outcome.

Ms. Booth spent many years on the Director's Committee of Holland & Knight and also spent more than a decade as the head of the firm's West Coast Real Estate Group.
