California Practice Areas Real Estate
Karolina Ericsson is the managing attorney of Ericsson Law Group, a boutique law practice specializing in California real estate law. Ericsson's practice focuses on a wide array of real estate matters, including the acquisition and disposition of all classes of commercial real estate (retail, industrial, hospitality and apartments), commercial leasing, land use matters and real estate litigation. She particularly enjoys working as a partner to new businesses as they expand and grow by negotiating leases, handling acquisitions and developing good internal infrastructure for the organizations. Ericsson has unique expertise in affordable housing (with a background in community development), as well as significant experience handling tenant-in-common syndications. Ericsson is also well-versed in lease and loan work-outs, as well as complicated restructurings for affordable housing partnerships. Prior to opening Ericsson Law Group, she was a partner in the real estate transactional group at Luce, Forward, Hamilton and Scripps LLP where she practiced from 2001 through 2009. She handled multi-million dollar commercial transactions with a primary emphasis on large transactions that were syndicated as tenant-in-common offerings. Representative transactions include the acquisition of The Village at Orange, a shopping mall in Orange, Calif., and the sale of Floral Trade Center in Carlsbad. Ericsson was privileged to serve as a law clerk to the (late) Honorable Napoleon A. Jones, Jr. of the United States District Court, Southern District. While in law school, she also served as a legal intern in the White House Office of Counsel under President Clinton's general counsel, Charles Ruff.
