Duff & Phelps Adds Norman Quinn in Property Tax Practice

Duff & Phelps has hired Norman Quinn as a managing director in the property tax services practice in Chicago. He joins from Faegre Baker Daniels, where he was president of the Equity Property Tax Group unit, a business he founded in 2007 as an Equity Office Properties subsidiary.

Quinn has worked with both single locations and large portfolios, and with a range of commercial real estate clients ranging from public REITs to asset management firms.

Along with Quinn, five Faegre Baker Daniels team members will join Duff & Phelps’ property tax practice. They’ll bring experience with assets including regional malls, trophy office/retail properties, multifamily apartments, hotels and special use commercial property.

“I am thrilled to have Norman and his team join Duff & Phelps,” said the firm’s Robert Herman. “Their commercial real estate portfolio complements Duff & Phelps’ existing client base, which includes a substantial number of complex industrial properties.”
