Jeff Maso practices transactional real estate law, including acquisitions, finance and lending, workouts, and retail and office leasing, with particular emphasis on the negotiation and documentation of complex transactions.

A former real estate broker and a seasoned negotiator, Jeff has developed broad experience in structuring transactions involving public agencies, nonprofits, and other non-traditional parties. His practice emphasizes the creative resolution of real estate issues of all kinds. He is also the firm’s resident expert on questions related to real estate broker licensing, title insurance, ground leasing, and conduit bond financing for the firm’s nonprofit clients.

Jeff has worked on a variety of projects relating to the development of Mission Bay, including the closing of the massive land exchange with the City and County of San Francisco that enabled development of Mission Bay to begin, and the negotiation and drafting of a ground lease for the site on which the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay is being constructed.

Jeff also headed the legal team representing the California Academy of Sciences in negotiating tax-exempt financing for the construction of the new Academy building in Golden Gate Park. He also worked on the legal team that negotiated and drafted the ground lease for Pacific Bell Park (now AT&T Park). More recently, he was part of the legal team representing the San Francisco 49ers in connection with the site acquisition and construction financing of the 49ers’ new stadium in Santa Clara.

Prior to law school, Jeff spent several years managing a large retail electronics business and worked as an entertainment critic and feature writer for a Chicago newspaper.
