Good morning, everyone. It’s great to be here at the 5th Annual Northern California Women in Commercial Leasing Law Symposium. So, thank you to the Real Property Law Section of the California Lawyers Association, and Jo Ann Woodsum especially, for the kind invitation.
When Jo Ann reached out to me about the Symposium, she shared the program from last year’s symposium. I read the program and saw the presentation topics. They were things like: the work letter, the TI disbursement process, mechanics’ liens, AIA contracts; and I thought: "these are my people." I am so happy to be here talking with you, and I am so looking forward to hearing more later today about LOIs (yes, really), SNDAs (yes, really), and specialized retail uses (yes, really).
