ATLANTA-Locally based law firm Thompson Hine LLP has hired Marci Schmerler as a partner in the firm’s real estate practice group. She will head up the firm’s real estate practice in Atlanta.

The focus of Schmerler’s practice is securing financing of multi-state commercial real estate projects for life companies, banks and conduit lenders for securitization. She has experience with acquisitions and sales of commercial real estate projects for REITs, life companies, pension funds, real estate advisors and other institutional and entrepreneurial investors. She also handles acquisition, sale, development and financing transactions involving owned and leased real estate for non-real estate companies. “Our Atlanta office is growing rapidly and we’re pleased to have lawyers of Marci’s caliber join us,” says Walt Linscott, partner-in-charge of the firm’s Atlanta office.

Schmerler received a jurist doctorate from Temple University School of Law, a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s Faculty of Arts & Sciences. She is a member of the Georgia State Bar Association’s Real Estate Section, the Atlanta Bar Association, the Commercial Mortgage Securities Association, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Industrial Office Professionals.
