Burke, Warren, MacKay & Serritella welcomes associate Dana White to its Real Estate group. Ms. White focuses her practice on complex commercial real estate transactions as well as counseling clients on a variety of business and real estate matters. She joins the Firm after practicing at a boutique commercial firm in Chicago.

Most recently, Ms. White represented Illinois’ largest wine and spirits distributor in the acquisition and redevelopment of a 36-acre site into a 605,000 square foot office, warehouse, and distribution facility. This project presented several unique challenges including negotiating pre-acquisition site construction with the owner and utilizing local and state tax incentives such as tax increment financing to help fund this $85 million project.

In discussing her move to the Firm, Ms. White said, “Burke, Warren offered me the opportunity to further hone my technical skills by working with well-respected and experienced attorneys while allowing me to build my own practice all within the context of a friendly, well-rounded firm culture.”

Ms. White received her B.A. in English from Indiana University in 2004. She earned her J.D., cum laude from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2010. She is currently enrolled in Loyola University Chicago’s Tax Law LL.M program. Ms. White is a member of the Chicago Bar Association, the Young Lawyers Real Estate Law Committee, and serves as the head coach for the Loyola University Chicago School of Law ABA Client Counseling Team.

Prior to law school, Ms. White worked for several years in marketing and business development at a Philadelphia-based civil engineering firm specializing in major transportation projects. Her work focused on complex proposal coordination and submission for privately funded projects as well as those funded at the local, state and federal levels.
