2021 Lawyers in Real Estate Awards
Atlanta & Southeast
Partner with Kilpatrick Townsend
Focuses her practice on securitization of commercial and residential real estate
Named a 2022 "Atlanta Lawyer of the Year"
Jennifer O’Connor, an Atlanta-based partner with Kilpatrick Townsend, focuses her practice on the securitization of commercial and residential real estate assets, as well as general corporate, lending, and real estate finance matters. She represents loan servicers, insurance companies, and other commercial lending entities with respect to several types of performing and non-performing loan modification requests.
O’Connor represents primary servicers, master servicers, special servicers, and other commercial lending entities in all aspects of CMBS loan, portfolio, CLO and SFR loan services with a particular emphasis on REMIC, pooling and Servicing Agreement, and lender credit issues associated with post-securitization/origination loan modifications. These include loan assumptions (single site, multi-site, multi-state sites, and single tenant sites), defeasances, mezzanine financing, preferred equity investments, loan modifications, borrower restructurings, and mergers, partial releases, easements, collateral reconfigurations, cash management, condemnations, leasing issues, loan workouts, loan sales, receivership, and foreclosures.
These are some of the reasons that we named O’Connor 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.
O’Connor was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in 2022 and the three years immediately preceding for securitization and structured finance law. She was also named a 2022 “Atlanta Lawyer of the Year” in the area of Securitization and Structured Finance Law by The Best Lawyers in America.
O’Connor is admitted to the state bars of North Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia. She is a member of the Real Estate and Probate Section of the Florida Bar and the Real Property Law Section of the Georgia Bar. Colleagues say she has great passion and drive for both her civic and professional work, and is dedicated to making a difference and giving back to the community where she lives and works.
