Bisnow Scoop: New Real Estate Law Firm
Real estate attorney Jennifer Kasman has repped high-profile real estate clients on construction, acquisition, development, and finance. But feeling the itch to start her own firm, Jennifer's just opened JR Kasman, PLLC, a real estate law boutique. Jennifer, who's a veteran of well-known real estate firms like Kelley Drye and Friedlander Misler, tells us she decided to go out on her own to bring an "aggressive, client-centric law firm to DC real estate clients." She'll also work with creditor and corporate law clients as well.
Here's 2200 Pennsylvania Ave, where Jennifer's signed a lease and already brought on a paralegal. The DC native got the real estate bug while at Brooklyn Law School and says the passion she had for the industry back then hasn't changed: "I like to have fun and close complicated deals." Jennifer says she was inspired by other women with established reputations who have left larger law firms (like Wendy White and Betsy Karmin, now at Morris Manning & Martin), and that for now at least, she won’t be spending much time in partner meetings.
