In the office and retail segments, Jessica regularly advises large landlords, building owners and managers in commercial leasing, day-to-day building management and operational issues. She represents both landlords and tenants in the management of national leasing programs. Her landlord and tenant work also includes resolution of disputes.

Jessica also has experience in all phases of real estate development, representing developers and landowners in the development or redevelopment of office buildings, retail and mixed-use developments, manufacturing plants and health care facilities.  To integrate a full range of services to developer clients, Jessica works closely with colleagues in other practice areas, such as environmental, planning and zoning, tax, construction, and economic incentives.

Jessica is particularly active in health care real estate. She counsels health care leaders on a variety of transactional, operational, and regulatory matters and represents property owners and health care providers in health care real estate transactions.

Prior to joining the firm, Jessica was of counsel at a U.S. based law firm where her practice was concentrated in health care real estate.
