Real estate lawyer Andrew White joins Winston & Strawn

Winston & Strawn LLP announced the addition of real estate finance attorney Andrew White as a partner in the firm’s Chicago office. White, who served as office practice chair at his prior firm, focuses his practice on raising private equity capital and forming joint ventures to own, operate, develop and finance a full range of property classes including office, industrial, residential, hotel and retail properties.

“Andrew has built a strong network of investors in both Chicago and Dallas,” said Winston chairman Tom Fitzgerald. “These are important markets for us and adding Andrew to our team sharpens our ability to serve real estate and private equity clients in both places.”

Handling a broad range of financing matters including real estate investors, funds, sponsors and operating companies, White serves clients including REITs, hedge fund managers and private equity funds, as well as developers, purchasers and landlords.

“Andrew is a creative lawyer with a dynamic practice,” said Corey Tessler, chair of Winston’s real estate practice. “In bringing him on board, we are enhancing our capabilities and our client base and, as importantly, we’re gaining a partner who is well-positioned to be a leading force in our field for years to come.”

A graduate of Fairfield University, White earned his J.D. at Loyola University Chicago School of Law and is a frequent writer and speaker on real estate industry, trends and outlook perspectives.

“The Winston platform is ideal for my practice and client base,” said White. “My clients will benefit from the depth and breadth of Winston’s team and, in turn, I look forward to contributing to the expansion of the firm’s national real estate practice.”
