L. Bruce Fischer and Scott Morehouse have joined as shareholders, together with three associates and two other real estate professionals. All seven were previously at Morgan, Lewis and Bockius. A fourth associate with whom Fischer and Morehouse have worked over the years is expected to join the group later this month. Fischer will head the real estate group in Orange County.

Raymond Lee, managing shareholder of Greenberg Traurig’s Orange County office was quoted as saying: “We are excited to welcome Bruce and Scott and their entire group to our office. Greenberg Traurig offers the perfect nationwide real estate practice platform for high energy lawyers like Bruce and Scott to continue to grow their already thriving practices.”


The three associates are Howard Chu, Irene Kim, and Tatyana Litovsky, and the two real estate professionals are Elena Preciado and Sabrina Jacobs.

Fischer works with real estate funds and REITS and their advisors in connection with the purchase and sale and financing of commercial properties (including portfolio sales and acquisitions) throughout the United States, directly or through the formation of joint ventures with local operators and/or developers. Fischer also advises his clients with respect to the origination, purchase and restructuring of loans, including complex mezzanine loans, and also has experience in representing lenders and developers in affordable housing transactions, including affordable housing transactions involving Section 42 Tax Credits.

Morehouse represents real estate funds, REITS, pension funds, banks and other institutional clients in a wide variety of transactions involving the financing, acquisition, disposition, development, construction, and leasing of real property around the country. He also regularly counsels lenders and borrowers with respect to the origination, acquisition, sale, structuring, and restructuring of performing and non-performing loans.
