Chair of the Real Estate & Property Development practice Mark Birnbaum said, “Serena is a highly experienced real estate lawyer and is well-established in the Seattle real estate community. The transactional real estate market in the Puget Sound region is among the fastest-growing in the nation, with a substantial number of real estate projects completed in downtown Seattle last year. Having a veteran like Serena join Perkins Coie allows us to capitalize on the region’s growth and better serve our clients who are contributing to that growth as well.”

Seattle Office Managing Partner Fred Rivera said, “Serena is widely respected in the Pacific Northwest real estate market, and among the Perkins Coie attorneys who have worked closely with her in the past as colleagues or on the other side of a commercial or development real estate matter. Her solid reputation and innate ability to build her practice in a growing and competitive market are leadership qualities essential to supporting our thriving and expanding real estate practice and Seattle office. We are delighted to welcome Serena to Perkins Coie.”
