October 21, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO, October 21, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today the addition of market-leading investment advisor Adam Lasoff as a Managing Director in San Francisco. The hire bolsters JLL’s Capital Markets presence in the Bay Area and amplifies the growing national Corporate Finance and Net Lease platform.

In his new role, Lasoff will be responsible for leading the team’s Corporate Finance and Net Lease business in Northern California. He will also partner with the Investment Sales team on office, R&D and industrial transactions. With a long history of successful execution across the credit spectrum – from public, investment grade tenants to leverage-buyout credit profiles – Lasoff will focus on a wide range of single-tenant and credit-related real estate transactions, including sales, joint ventures, sale-leasebacks and recapitalizations.

Lasoff joins JLL from a global commercial real estate firm, where he most recently served as Managing Director and co-head of the Northern California Capital Markets team. He was consistently recognized as a top performer annually and has handled in excess of $8 billion in transactions representing more than 25 million square feet throughout his career. Relevant notable transactions include the $350 million sale of TIBCO Software’s Global Headquarters in Palo Alto, the $130 million sale of the State of California’s offices in Sacramento and the $115 million sale of Exelixis’ Global Headquarters in Alameda.

“The chance to participate in and contribute to the impressive growth that JLL has committed to is an exceptional career opportunity and I am thrilled to be a part of the company,” Lasoff commented. “Being able to join a world class capital markets platform in conjunction with the industry-leading capabilities of JLL creates extraordinary synergy resulting in a very powerful combination for our investor and corporate clients."

“We are thrilled to have Adam join our team,” Rob Hielscher, co-head of JLL’s Capital Markets team in the Bay Area, added. “He is one of the most well-respected capital markets advisors in the Bay Area and will add value for our clients in numerous service lines including corporate finance, investment sales and equity placement. This hire highlights that JLL continues to add key personnel to our Capital Markets team locally and nationally, regardless of market conditions.”
