Local Publication Honors Top 50 Women Over 50

SAN DIEGO –  Ann Maas, a partner with Crosbie Gliner Schiffman Southard & Swanson (CGS3), has been recognized by the San Diego Business Journal as one of San Diego’s Top 50 Women of Influence over 50.

According to the publication, this awards program was launched to honor and support the Top 50 women leaders of influence over 50 in San Diego – acknowledging their contributions and commitment to the community.

Sean Southard, a CGS3 founding partner, says Maas is well-deserving of this latest accolade. “Ann is committed to fulfilling CGS3’s mission of delivering a best-in-class client experience and is a valued member of our team,” he said. “She has honed her skills to peak efficiency – and is an expert at efficiently getting deals drafted, negotiated and signed, instinctively focusing on the issues that matter the most, time after time.”

One of the original CGS3 firm members, Maas was promoted from senior counsel to partner in 2022. Throughout her more than 25-year legal career, she has applied her technical, legal and market knowledge in representing both landlords and tenants in millions of square feet of commercial space across all asset types and also has significant expertise in handling purchase and sale transactions.  She is known in the commercial real estate sector for her ability to work efficiently and get deals done in a manner that is consistent with her client’s needs and business objectives.

Prior to joining CGS3, she was a real estate attorney at Mintz Levin. She began her legal career at Allen Matkins and served as 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.
