Hogan Lovells appoints Denver-based real estate finance lawyer
Hogan Lovells, a global law firm, has appointed Ana Lazo Tenzer as a partner in the Corporate practice in Denver.
Tenzer focuses on real estate finance and will be a member of the firm’s national real estate team.
“A strategic goal of the firm has been to build on our exceptional global real estate capabilities by strengthening and broadening our US real estate practice,” says David Gibbons, Global Head of the Corporate Practice at Hogan Lovells. “Ana is a dynamic addition to our team who brings extensive experience working on complex real estate finance matters and borrower side sale and development transactions.”
Tenzer previously was with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, where she served as chair of the firm's Finance & Lending Group, and before that as co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate Department. She began her legal career at Paul Hastings in New York.
Tenzer represents lenders and borrowers, including investment banks, private equity firms and their portfolio companies, institutional investors and insurance companies. She represents companies in their mortgage and asset portfolios, structured loan and credit facilities, single and multi-property commercial mortgage loans, mezzanine loans, preferred equity and EB-5 equity and debt transactions.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ana to the Denver office,” says Cole Finegan, Hogan Lovells’ regional managing partner for the Americas and office managing partner of the Denver office. “We know Ana well, and she brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to clients in the Denver region, as well as those across the United States and globally. She is a respected presence in the real estate world.”
“Hogan Lovells has a strong national platform that will provide a tremendous advantage to my clients,” Tenzer said. “I am also looking forward to working with colleagues in the Denver office who have built a widely recognised real estate practice, which provides opportunities for regional expansion as well.”
