Elizabeth Chambers

In my nearly 25 years of practicing law, I enjoy serving as a strategic business partner to executive teams on a comprehensive array of business and real estate transactions and strive to bring both sound business judgment and interpersonal skills to the role. In addition to private practice, I have substantial in-house expertise and now provide both growing and mature businesses with corporate counsel services, including serving as outside corporate counsel for clients who are not yet ready to hire a full time General Counsel. Additionally, my real estate practice includes transactions and acquisitions, contract and lease negotiations, financings, new construction projects and operations, entity formation, and joint ventures.

Before joining Real Property Law Group, I served as General Counsel for Aegis Living for over a decade, a privately held real estate development and senior living operator with over 2,500 employees in 3 states, and nearly $250 million in annual operating revenues. In this role, I oversaw all legal aspects of 17 ground up developments, from acquisition, to construction, to opening and leasing, including construction and permanent financing at each stage. I was a key partner in negotiating a joint venture with a private equity investor to acquire 14 properties (over 1,000 units) in a series of transactions valued at over $640 million. In addition to my real estate work and overseeing all legal functions in my role, I enjoyed an active role on the executive leadership team, helping the company to “peek around corners” and meaningfully impact the organization’s profitability and culture.

Prior to joining Aegis Living, I was a partner at Cairncross & Hempelmann, where my business practice ranged from advising founders to counselling established companies on myriad corporate issues, including start-up, formation and governance issues, capital raising and acquisitions, general business counselling, and contract negotiations. I also worked with Microsoft Corporation, MSNBC and Aegis Living on various domestic and international business transactions, including a significant mergers and acquisitions practice. In particular, I served as lead counsel to Microsoft Corporation and MSNBC in 25 acquisitions and securities investments.
