Jed W. Bonner

In his real estate practice, Jed Bonner represents his clients’ best interests from both a legal and business perspective, taking a comprehensive yet efficient approach to his complex transactional work. Primarily, Jed works on the leasing, acquisition/disposition, financing (representing lenders and borrowers) and development of office, retail and mixed-use, multifamily, industrial, and data-center properties throughout the country. In addition, Jed has represented clients in structuring and executing successful business venture vehicles, including in the commercial real estate and entertainment / retail sectors.

Jed’s practice is driven, in part, by his fascination with commercial real estate and built urban environments, an interest he developed while growing up in New York City. In addition to his professional work in commercial real estate, Jed manages multiple properties in both California and New York with his wife, who is an architect.

One of Jed’s recent successful transactions involved representing a Chinese developer in an over 800,000 square foot office lease on a very tight deadline. The matter presented several challenges, as the lease needed to be translated to Chinese legal vernacular, which meant that all documents needed to be turned around quickly and accurately, despite the size and complexity of the deal. The client was happy with the firm’s quick work and end result, so much so that they further engaged the firm to represent them in a $500 million construction loan.

Jed is an active member of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association (YPG Alum), and the San Francisco Urban Land Institute. His volunteer work also includes conducting alumni interviews for college applicants on behalf of his undergraduate university, Skidmore College.
