The Denver office of national law firm Polsinelli recently welcomed Alexander B. Barton as counsel in the firm’s Real Estate Development and Transactions Practice.

“Alex’s experience will further strengthen our real estate team to effectively support the needs of clients, both regionally and nationally,” said Gene Commander, managing shareholder of the Denver office of Polsinelli. “As the real estate industry continues to rebound and expand, we’re pleased to add counsel like Alex to our growing office.”

Barton focuses his practice on commercial real estate transactions and has extensive experience in real estate acquisitions and dispositions, development, leasing and finance. His background also includes representing lenders in acquisition and construction loans, mezzanine loans and loan workouts; representing developers in acquisitions, dispositions, financing, construction and leasing; and representing tenants and landlords in all stages of lease transactions. Additionally, Barton will work closely with the firm’s health care practice in supporting real estate-related aspects of the broader health care industry.

“With an increase in real estate issues and needs in the health care industry, Alex brings key insights and counsel for our clients in this area, as well as other commercial, industrial and lease transactions,” national Real Estate Division Chair John Petersen said.

Barton is licensed to practice law in Colorado and New York. Prior to returning to his home state of Colorado in 2010, he practiced commercial real estate law in New York City. Barton earned his law degree from Brooklyn Law School and holds a B.A. from Colgate University.
