Timothy M. Walsh

Timothy Walsh advises clients on commercial real estate transactions and financing, as well as corporate matters, based on his more than 35 years of experience in private practice and as in-house counsel at Fortune 500 and mid-market privately held companies.

Tim's commercial real estate experience includes negotiating and closing on purchases and sales of more than 100 commercial properties nationwide. He represents commercial developers, including advising them on T.I.F. financing, government approvals, leasing, development agreements, construction and title matters. He also helps companies manage their real estate portfolios. On the financial side of real estate deals, Tim represents financial institutions in commercial real estate closings and workouts and foreclosures of commercial real estate loans. He also sells properties for lenders. On the buyer side, he structures and closes loan transactions and lines of credits to support the purchase, sale and development of commercial real estate.

Beyond his commercial real estate practice, Tim helps businesses navigate mergers, acquisitions and other complex transactions, including contracting matters. He also advises them on governance and structure and guides them through formation and expansion. The breadth and depth of his experience situates him in particular to develop and advise entrepreneurial companies on these and other issues.

In providing outside counsel for companies, Tim draws on his experience serving as general counsel, executive vice president and a member of the founding team that transformed Silestone© countertop maker Cosentino North America from a start-up to a national $300 million-plus business with operations in more than 25 states in six years. Part of Tim’s role at Cosentino was managing the company’s real estate portfolio, which included the acquisition, construction and development of 20 fabrication facilities and 25 leased distribution centers. Tim also served in a transitional general counsel role for a large mid-market international manufacturing and distribution company and as in-house counsel for ITT Diversified Financial Corporation, where he worked on dozens of multi-million dollar commercial real estate loans across the United States.
