Jeffery S. DeArman

Partner and Transactions and Corporate Advisory Services Practice Group Leader

I have a multi-state practice, representing regional and national clients over a variety of industries focusing on all aspects of commercial real estate and finance. I assist clients with managing all aspects of their commercial real estate portfolios – selling, acquiring, financing, leasing and developing properties.

Jeff DeArman represents regional and national owners, users, investors and other clients in all aspects of commercial real estate, including the disposition, acquisition, financing, leasing, construction, development and operation of commercial properties. Jeff has a particular focus on representing financial institutions and other owners and users whose primary business is not commercial real estate, but who own, lease and/or otherwise operate a large amount of commercial real estate over all or portions of the United States. He represents clients in a variety of industries including financial services, industrial, retail, multi-family and hospitality.

Jeff’s finance practice includes assisting financial institutions and other lenders with acquisition and construction financing and other types of financing arrangements and credit facilities.

I pride myself on being extremely responsive to all of my clients, knowing the goals of my clients and finding creative ways to make a deal for my clients without exposing them to unnecessary risks.
