Minneapolis-based Leonard, Street and Deinard shareholder Gina Fox has been named among the year’s “Top Women in Finance” by Finance & Commerce for her work on several high-profile real estate transactions in 2013.
The business newspaper annually recognizes an elite group of Minnesota women in finance and related professionals who are making significant contributions to their profession and to the wider community.
A renewed construction boom in the Twin Cities—from the recent acquisition and development of two new Goodwill Industries facilities to the new Elysian 56-unit, mixed-use development near the University of Minnesota campus to the redevelopment of the Oakdale shopping center site—is pumping new blood into the local economy.
Fox, a shareholder in the real estate law practice at Leonard, Street and Deinard, is a player in helping these new development projects—and many others—become reality. She represents commercial enterprises and developers of important new real estate projects in securing and negotiating financing, guiding them through all legal facets of the project and ensuring a smooth and successful closing.
