Capital Square, a national investment sponsor specializing in tax-advantaged real estate offerings, has hired Alyssa Haun as the firm’s associate general counsel.
Haun, who has more than 20 years of experience as a commercial real estate lawyer, has provided counsel to investors, developers, non-traded real estate investment trusts and other clients on the acquisition, development, financing, leasing, and disposition of various types of commercial real estate. Additionally, she has represented lenders in the documentation and negotiation of real estate loans as well as advised clients on loan restructuring and foreclosure issues.
Prior to joining Capital Square, Haun was a partner in the real estate practice group of Moran Reeves & Conn, a Richmond, Virginia-based law firm. Previously, she served as an attorney in the real estate practice groups of several Virginia law firms, including Kaplan Voekler Cunningham & Frank and McGuireWoods.
Haun joins Jeff Gregor, Capital Square’s general counsel and a founding member of the management team, Melodie Bobko, vice president of transactions and senior paralegal, and Colleen Nichols, fellow associate general counsel.
“We live in a complex world, and having able legal counsel in house gives Capital Square a competitive advantage…,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square. “With a stellar inhouse legal team, Capital Square is able to work more quickly and efficiently than competitors who call on outside counsel for most of their legal needs.”
Haun holds a juris doctor degree from the George Washington University Law School and a bachelor’s degree from the College of William & Mary.
“We have worked with Alyssa for years. She knows our business and has an ideal background to help Capital Square continue to grow and prosper,” said Jeff Gregor, executive vice president and general counsel.
