Jeffrey Lampiasi

Summary Open

Jeff has more than 25 years of commercial real estate experience, representing a diverse group of clients including private equity firms, regional and national developers, corporate real estate departments, publicly traded REITs, Fortune 100 insurance companies, and major banks and financial institutions.

Over the course of his career, Jeff has been involved in the acquisition, sale, design, development, construction, leasing and financing of a wide variety of properties throughout the United States, including major office buildings, large multi-family complexes, residential and mixed-use condominium projects, luxury hotels and resorts, professional sports arenas and theme parks.  In addition, he has negotiated complicated joint venture agreements on behalf of developers, operators and equity investors.

Prior to joining WFW, Jeff practiced for over 10 years at two of New York’s premier law firms before starting his own firm where, among other things, he served as General Counsel to a large, New York-based developer for almost 14 years.  This diverse background has given Jeff a unique perspective on structuring complicated real estate transactions and finding creative, yet practical, solutions to challenging issues.
