Jemima has handled millions of dollars’ worth of real estate transactions involving almost every sector of the market. She helps her clients through every stage of the transaction, from entity formation and contract negotiation, review and drafting, to due diligence, including title and survey review, analysis of land use issues and environmental studies and reports, the financing and closing of the transaction, the construction issues and review of the related contracts, and, of course, the eventual leasing up of the project and/or the eventual resale of the development or project.
Her clients include private developers, landowners, landlords and tenants, borrowers, regional and national banks, universities, non-profit organizations, assisted living facilities, and homeowners associations, to name just a few, each of whom have various business and real estate needs. Recently, with the passage of I-502, her work has included advice to landlords and tenants on cannabis issues that arise in lease transactions.
Outside of work, Jemima has donated substantial time and resources as a board member to a number of community and professional organizations including the Tacoma Art Museum, Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region (aka Tacoma Goodwill Industries), Washington Women Lawyers, and the Highline Community College Foundation.
