Ann Maas Announced as CRE Law Firm’s Newest Partner

SAN DIEGO (June 29, 2022) – Crosbie Gliner Schiffman Southard & Swanson LLP (CGS3), a Southern California-based commercial real estate law firm, has announced the promotion of Ann Maas from senior counsel to partner. Maas, who joined the firm in 2013, will work from CGS3’s San Diego offices.

According to Sean Southard, a CGS3 founding partner, this latest promotion is part of CGS3’s forward-thinking strategy for continuing measured growth, which entails elevating attorneys with proven track records to senior roles – while expanding core practice areas.

“Ann’s dedication to her clients and passionate commitment to fulfilling CGS3’s mission of delivering a best-in-class client experience are just a couple of the many reasons she has been promoted to this level,” said Southard. “She is an expert at efficiently getting deals drafted, negotiated and signed and knows instinctively how to focus on the issues that matter the most, time after time.”

Throughout her more than 25-year legal career, Maas has accrued experience representing both landlords and tenants with particular emphasis on office and retail leasing and also has significant expertise in purchase and sale transactions.

Prior to joining CGS3, she was an attorney at Mintz Levin and Allen Matkins and was also in-house senior counsel at Equastone, a real estate investment firm.

She holds Bachelor of Arts in English from Brigham Young University (BYU) and a J.D. from BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School.
