Danna Horton, a real estate lawyer with extensive experience serving the commercial real estate and financial services industries, has joined King & Spalding as a partner in its corporate, finance and investments practice group. Horton is based in the firm’s Chicago office. 

Most recently a partner at Katten Muchin Rosenman in Chicago, Horton counsels lenders and borrowers in real estate finance transactions, including first mortgage loans, mezzanine loans, construction loans and loan sales.

“Danna is an accomplished real estate finance lawyer with a strong client-service orientation and an extensive track record handling the types of sophisticated transactions that our clients consistently turn to us for,” said Mark Thigpen, head of the firm’s real estate team. “Welcoming her to our team adds critical bench strength to our transactional practice.”
