OVERVIEW

Jason Myers’ client-driven approach stems from having spent approximately half of his nearly 25-year career as a client himself. His in-house legal and business roles, coupled with his wide-ranging transactional experience, enable Jason to team with his clients to offer a thoughtful, multi-perspective, problem-solving approach to meeting their business objectives.

Jason is a commercial attorney skilled in the areas of finance and real estate. Clients often turn to Jason for their most unique transactions requiring a combination of high-level legal skills and outside-the-box creativity.

For example, he served as the primary draftsman on behalf of a municipal client of the stadium lease for an NFL team; advised on the development, financing and leasing of a shopping center in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina; and managed all real estate-related aspects of the acquisition of a crude oil refinery and the related acquisition and sale-leaseback of 166 convenience stores.*

Before joining Barnes & Thornburg, Jason served as senior counsel and director of Hudson Advisors L.P., a globally integrated asset manager operating in the private equity space focused on real estate, credit, equity and other financial assets. He was head of its financial services legal team and provided coverage for the internal business groups handling credit facilities and derivatives transactions and related regulatory matters. In addition, Jason's experience in private practice includes traditional real estate and finance transactions, as well as similar projects in the energy, public-private partnership, and M&A sectors.

Before practicing law, Jason served as vice president of asset management for a real estate developer and independent power producer with responsibilities that included financial modeling, regulatory and covenant compliance, and investor relations.

*These matters occurred prior to joining Barnes & Thornburg.
