Joan C. Rosoff

Joan Rosoff brings a philosophy of teamwork to each matter, partnering with clients to ensure that goals are met and deals are made. For nearly 30 years Joan has been representing regional and national clients in a wide array of real estate finance and other transactions. She serves as counsel in all aspects of transactions, providing services in structuring, documenting and closing deals.

Throughout her law career, Joan has represented many different types of clients including national, regional and local banking institutions, national insurance companies, private lenders and investors. The transactions Joan has worked on have ranged from large, multi-state syndicated mortgage loans to regional shopping center transactions to smaller owner occupied stand alone real estate transactions. These transactions have involved not only front end loan work but restructures and workouts of troubled loans as well.

While most of Joan’s transactions involve representing lenders, she also has experience in representing owners and investors. In the latter instance, Joan believes that her experience in representing lenders allows her to bring value to representing “the other side” as she has an excellent grasp of what lenders need to make a transaction work.

Joan also provides her services on a pro bono basis to homeowners in Philadelphia through her service in the Philadelphia County Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Project. In so doing, Joan has worked with several clients and provided services that allowed them to adjust their mortgage loans and thus remain in their homes and continue paying their lenders.

Joan is a member of the Mortgage Bankers Association, the CRE Finance Council (formerly the Commercial Mortgage Securities Association), and CREW Network, an international real estate organization with over 8,000 members. Joan served as the President of CREW Network in 2003, and chaired its Scholarship Committee for several years.

As co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate and Finance Groups, Joan leads a team of lawyers in the development and administration of the practices. She also oversees the training of lawyers within the groups and serves as liaison to the firm’s management committees.

As part of her team oriented approach and in keeping with her philosophy of providing value to her clients, Joan has created and presented educational seminars to clients, including a series of ten weekly sessions to a lending client focusing on real estate topics such as title insurance, surveys and SNDAs.
