Tatiana Z. Pawlowski Associate

Tatiana focuses her practice on real estate finance transactions and represents institutional lenders in connection with commercial real estate loans intended for securitization and sale in the secondary market secured by all asset classes including retail, office, hotel, industrial, multifamily and mixed use. She also represents lenders in the origination and sale of loans originated under the Fannie Mae DUS and Freddie Mac Seller/Servicer programs.

Though recently admitted to the bar, Tatiana has over a decade of legal experience. Prior to joining McGuireWoods, Tatiana worked at several New York real estate law firms and represented buyers, sellers and lenders on all aspects of residential real estate transactions while gaining exposure to related areas of tax, probate, business, and not-for-profit law. Tatiana also provided general counsel and litigation representation to cooperative and condominium boards on corporate governance matters and various disputes between boards, sponsors, and unit owners. Attending Brooklyn Law School in the evenings while working full-time as a paralegal, Tatiana earned a certificate in real estate law and took courses in real estate finance, development, construction, sustainable building, zoning, and low income housing.

Outside of the classroom, Tatiana combined her interests in real estate law and policy research at Brooklyn Law School’s Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE), where, as a CUBE Fellow, she researched local affordable housing issues and worked to promote urban agriculture discourse, development, and legislation in New York City. Undertaking an independent study of the urban agriculture policies, zoning laws, and legislative initiatives of over a dozen US cities, Tatiana has spoken on the subject at several local events and authored a white paper outlining recommendations for New York City and other American cities to consider as they continue to develop their own agriculture initiatives. The paper, entitled “From Food Deserts to Just Deserts: Expanding Urban Agriculture in US Cities Through Sustainable Policy,” was published in the Vol. 26:3 of the ABA Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law in March 2018.

In her free time, Tatiana enjoys running, painting, and playing music.
