Listed in Best Lawyers in America since 1999
A managing shareholder in the Birmingham office of Baker Donelson, Denise Killebrew now chairs the firm’s real estate/finance group, having been named co-chair in 2020. She concentrates her practice in the areas of real estate and capital finance as well as commercial lending and finance.
She represents real estate developers in connection with the acquisition, development and financing of real estate, including land use planning and the structuring of alternative financing, capital stacks and joint venture vehicles.
Killebrew also has years of experience in the development, finance and management of senior housing and in retail development and leasing both for shopping center developers and national retailers. She has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America since 1999 and in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Business Lawyers since 2010. In 2003, she was a recipient of the Women of Distinction Award.
These are some of the reasons that we named Killebrew to our Atlanta & Southeast grouping of Lawyers in Real Estate. These are real estate attorneys who have distinguished themselves in both their practice and the larger community.
