He works closely with clients in all aspects of commercial real estate and finance, including representation of lenders, developers, loan syndication agents, and borrowers in complex transactions and litigation. Jonathan has significant experience on both the origination and servicing sides of commercial mortgage backed securities and other structured finance transactions. He has represented, nationally and internationally, some of the largest loan originators, special and master servicers, and administrative/collateral agents in portfolio, conduit, and loan syndication agency transactions. Jonathan is a frequent lecturer on structured finance issues.
Jonathan has held numerous leadership positions in legal and professional organizations on a local and national level. He is the Texas State Chair of the American College of Mortgage Attorneys (ACMA) and, as such, is responsible for editing the Texas section of the ACMA Mortgage Law Summary, reviewing proposed Texas ACMA nominees, and answering ACMA questions regarding Texas Law. He is one of only three Texas lawyers to have been elected a fellow of both the ACMA and the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL).
