Lawyers in Real Estate 2020: Goodwin Procter’s Minta Kay
Minta Kay is a partner in and chair of Goodwin Procter LLP’s Real Estate Industry group and a member of its Real Estate Joint Ventures, Real Estate Finance and Hospitality & Leisure practices. For more than 28 years, Kay has represented institutional investors, tax-exempts, real estate funds and owner/operators in connection with all aspects of their real estate investment transactions.
Kay regularly advises clients on joint venture formation and restructuring, senior and junior debt origination, acquisition and restructuring, portfolio transactions, development transactions, and property sales and acquisitions. In the past five years, she has closed over 55 transactions totaling in excess of $8.5 billion.
Kay is also a leader in Goodwin’s PropTech Initiative, which is focused on supporting the intersection of Real Estate and Technology through thoughtful collaboration across the two practice areas. As a key member of the PropTech Steering Committee, she’s responsible for driving strategy across the two groups to effectively support clients involved in the emerging subsector. Some of these initiatives include participation in key industry events, providing thought leadership, and offering important client service initiatives to empower investment and growth across both markets.
Kay is consistently recognized as a leading real estate attorney by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, Super Lawyers and U.S. News-Best Lawyers. She formerly served on Goodwin’s Executive Committee, as chair of its Attorney Review Committee, and as a member of the Partnership and Allocations Committees. Currently, she serves as a member of the Women’s Initiative.
It’s for these reasons that we named Minta Kay 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.
