SAN DIEGO (October 29, 2007) – Two new attorneys have joined Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP in the firm’s renowned Tenant-In-Common (TIC) specialization. Both Mark T. Mauerman, special counsel, and Ariel R. Bedell, an associate, will work from Luce Forward’s downtown San Diego office.
The TIC group is part of Luce Forward’s business practice group and is led by attorney Darryl Steinhause, who pioneered the legal structure for the modern tenant-in-common syndication model more than ten years ago. Known for its ability to create solutions and structure complex deals across the country, Luce Forward’s top tier TIC practice continues to expand.
Mauerman, who previously had a solo practice, has focused primarily on securities work including mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and governance, taxation and other related business transactions for both private and public companies. Bedell’s practice specializes in commercial real estate transactions including acquisition and disposition of apartment complexes, shopping centers, vacant land and office complexes.
“The knowledge and expertise acquired by Mark and Ariel through their previous work will benefit our distinguished TIC group, as well as help our current and future clients,” said Robert J. Bell, Luce Forward’s Managing Partner. “We have worked with Mark in the past and know him to be a dedicated and skilled attorney, and Ariel will be a strong support to our expanding group of attorneys who lead the nation in TIC syndications. We are excited they have chosen to become part of the practice.”
Mauerman received a Master of Laws degree in taxation from New York University School of Law, a Juris Doctor degree from Willamette University College of Law, and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Redlands. Bedell received a Master of Laws degree in taxation and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of San Diego School of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts degree of San Diego State University.
