Lawyers in Real Estate 2020: Orrick's Michael Liever

Michael Liever is a partner in the San Francisco office of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, and a lawyer with one of the largest and most diversified national real estate practices in the country. Orrick’s Real Estate Group concentrates on developing, buying, selling, leasing and financing commercial real property.

Liever has extensive involvement in representing both foreign and domestic investors in the acquisition, disposition, development, leasing, financing, and joint venture of office buildings, shopping centers, hotels, industrial parks, and apartments. In the 2020 Northern California Real Estate category of Chambers USA, a client said, "he is the best in the business - he is hard-working, honest and reasonable." Another added that "he's very consistently thoughtful and responsive, and he has a steady commitment to client service."

His clients include RREEF America L.L.C. and its various separate accounts; Bentall Kennedy Group; New York Life Insurance Company; Alecta Investments Management (USA); Morgan Stanley; BlackRock Realty Advisors; Heitman Properties, McMorgan & Company, Gerson Bakar & Associates, Legacy Partners Commercial, Inc.; Broadreach Capital Partners LLC; CharterMac Mortgage Capital; GLL US Office, L.P.; University of California; Rockwood Capital Corporation; Industrial Income Trust, Inc., Stockbridge Real Estate Funds, Divco West Properties; Bristol Group; Cargill; the City & County of San Francisco; CalPERS; IowaPERS; Mass PRIM; San Bernardino County Retirement System; the County of San Diego Retirement System; the County of Alameda Retirement System; the City of Sacramento; Los Angeles County Employees Retirement Association; RNM Properties; Union Property Capital; and Starbucks Corporation.

It’s for these reasons that we named Michael Liever to our inaugural grouping of Lawyers in Real Estate. These are real estate attorneys who have distinguished themselves in both their practice and the larger community.
