Thompson Hine Adds Experienced Real Estate Partner in New York

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thompson Hine LLP is pleased to announce that Jonathan A. Olick, who
practices in the areas of real estate and structured finance and
public-private partnership finance, has joined its New York office as a
partner in the Real Estate practice. He previously was a partner at
Duane Morris LLP.

Olick’s practice focuses on credit-lease construction and permanent
financing of U.S. federal, state and local government leased properties
and properties leased to educational institutions, hospitals and
commercial tenants. He also is active in the domestic and international
public-private partnership market, representing senior lenders and
investors in projects supported by governmental credit enhancement. His
clients include investment banks, placement agents, insurance company
investment divisions and other financial institutions. Olick also
represents underwriters, lenders, developers and borrowers in a wide
variety of structured finance transactions, including credit-tenant,
synthetic-lease and sale/leaseback transactions. He regularly represents
private lenders and investors, including insurance companies and pension
funds, in credit-lease and general corporate debt transactions.

“Jonathan’s background and experience increases the depth of our
practice in New York and further enhances the firm’s national real
estate bench and our public-private partnership practice,” said Todd E.
Mason, partner-in-charge of the firm’s New York office. “With the
increase in public sector transactions, the need for sophisticated real
estate counsel in this area has intensified. His substantial experience
will greatly benefit our clients.”

In the last three years, Olick has completed more than 30 construction
and permanent first mortgage and mezzanine loan financings involving
U.S. government facilities, including more than 20 VA health care
facilities, with an aggregate value in excess of $1 billion, and he is
currently working on several high-profile projects with governmental
support in the Caribbean.

“I am very excited to join a firm with a growing New York presence, a
strong national real estate practice representing clients in all levels
of the capital stack, and national recognition for innovation in service
delivery,” said Olick. “My clients will derive significant benefits from
the resources available in the firm’s robust real estate, finance,
construction and government contracting practices, including the firm’s
Project Management Consultants subsidiary and its ability to provide
clients with construction administration services.”
