A former partner in the Real Estate and Finance Practice Groups at Patzik, Frank & Samotny, a Chicago-based law firm where he worked for two decades, Allan has handled more than 300 net lease transactions on behalf of various REITs.

Allan’s work is primarily focused on commercial real estate, specializing in the areas of real estate financing, commercial leasing, and the acquisition and disposition of real estate assets. Since the early 1990s, he has served as the sole counsel handling the real estate acquisitions and dispositions for a group of public funds that are engaged exclusively in the acquisition of single tenant net lease properties, ranging in size from single sites to portfolios involving 20 sites spanning 30 states.

Allan represents both public and privately held REITs in all matters related to their businesses, and consults with clients regarding the tax-advantaged structuring of real estate transactions. He also represents commercial lending institutions and commercial borrowers on a regular basis. 

Allan earned both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was admitted to the Illinois State Bar in 1970, and is an active member of the Illinois State and Chicago Bar Associations.
