Lawyers in Real Estate 2020: Sheppard Mullin’s Pamela Westhoff
Pamela Westhoff is a partner in the Real Estate, Land Use and Environmental Practice Group in the Los Angeles office of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP. She is a member of the firm’s Compensation Committee.
Westhoff has a broad-based and versatile transactional real estate practice, with an emphasis in acquisitions, dispositions, commercial leasing, and technology issues affecting real estate. She also has extensive experience in ground lease and sale-leaseback transactions, and all types of real estate development and lending transactions, including workouts, restructures, and joint ventures.
With nearly 35 years in the legal sector, Westhoff has represented developers and equity investors in commercial development projects, including hotels and condominiums. She also represents owners and providers in connection with telecommunication issues affecting commercial and retail properties, as well as university campuses. She has developed experience in the representation of radio and television broadcasters in real estate-related matters, including broadcast and communications tower licensing.
Westhoff is a member of the Executive Committee of NAIOP Southern California’s Board of Directors. She has served as NAIOP SoCal’s president during 2020, a year that has seen chapter members step up to create “solid educational events” and further the work of chapter committees despite being unable to gather in person, Westhoff wrote in a President‘s Message this past August.
It’s for these reasons that we named Pamela Westhoff 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.
