Polsinelli welcomes highly experienced attorney Anoush Hakimi as counsel to its strong national Real Estate Finance Group. Hakimi has represented international and domestic corporate and commercial clients on both coasts in a wide range of complex real estate financial transactions.

“Anoush’s depth of experience in all types of loan financing and commercial real estate acquisitions will be a great asset to our clients in Los Angeles as well as a complement to our national Real Estate Finance Practice,” said Maribeth S. McMahon, chair of the Real Estate Finance Practice.“We are extremely pleased to have an attorney of Anoush’s caliber join our growing team.”

Hakimi focuses his practice on the financing of real estate commercial transactions, including the representation of funds, investment banks, lenders, developers and institutional and non-institutional investors in connection with construction, bridge, permanent, securitized and mezzanine financing. He also has extensive experience with respect to note sales and acquisitions, workouts, restructurings and reorganizations, as well as more traditional real estate transactions including the acquisition and disposition of commercial properties, commercial leasing, ground leasing and ground leasehold financing.

“I moved to Polsinelli because the firm has a clear vision of how to help clients achieve success and places a heavy emphasis on understanding the client’s business,” Hakimi said. “Polsinelli offers a national platform to develop my practice and the opportunity to collaborate with highly respected attorneys.”

The firm was recently recognized as the fastest-growing law firm in America over the past five years by The American Lawyer. This year, the firm moved to the 69th position from 78th in The National Law Journal’s ranking of the largest U.S. based law firms. The firm’s nationally recognized Health Care Practice is the fourth largest in the nation according to the American Health Lawyers Association.

Hakimi earned his law degree from the University of California-Los Angeles School of Law in 2003. He earned a B.A. degree, magna cum laude, from the same university in 2000. Hakimi is licensed in California, New York and Washington, D.C. He is a member of the State Bar of California, the New York State Bar Association and the District of Columbia Bar.
