Perkins Coie is pleased to announce that Allan E. Low has joined the firm’s San Francisco office as a partner in the Real Estate practice.  Low was most recently a partner at Nixon Peabody LLP.

“Allan’s practice is a terrific complement to our existing Real Estate and Land Use practices in San Francisco,” said Barbara Schussman, Office Managing Partner of Perkins Coie’s San Francisco office.  “There are relatively few firms in the Bay Area that can offer, on an integrated basis, high-quality land use and transactional services.  With Allan as part of our team, we can provide a top-notch, efficient resource for clients for their most complex development projects and real estate deals.”

Low represents financial institutions and lenders in connection with loan originations, loan modifications, loan workouts, troubled debt restructuring, forbearance agreements, receiverships and deed in lieu transactions.  He also represents buyers, sellers, and owners of real property on the purchase and sale of single assets and portfolio transactions, leasing, lease restructuring and enforcement of leases.  Low’s practice includes the representation of property owners on subdivisions, easements and other land sharing arrangements, and on zoning amendments, special use districts, variances, conditional use permits, and obtaining and defending the issuance of permits and other land use entitlements.

Low earned his J.D. from University of California, Hastings College of the Law and his B.S. from University of California, Berkeley. He is currently Vice President and Commissioner of the City of San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission. Last year, he served on the Board of Directors of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area. Allan has also served on many community boards including the YMCA of San Francisco, The Hamlin School, St. Luke’s Preschool, the Chinatown YMCA and Chinatown Community Housing Corporation. Low also has served as the Northern California Real Estate Finance Committee chairperson for the State Bar Association and serves as a fee arbitrator for the State Bar. He has been recognized as a Northern California Super Lawyer since 2004.

Low’s arrival follows closely upon other recent additions to Perkins Coie’s San Francisco office, including Ned Washburn, a nationally recognized leader in environmental and natural resources litigation and regulatory counseling; Jim McTarnaghan, a prominent energy and telecommunications attorney; Arthur Haubenstock, former Vice President for Regulatory Affairs at BrightSource Energy, Inc., and Louise Adamson, a leader in the real estate and green leasing fields.
