Jerry J. Ruiz
Twelve years ago, Jerry Ruiz returned to private law practice with AlvaradoSmith, where he is co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate Practice and is active in community and economic development initiatives across Southern California. He represents some of the region’s most recognizable companies.
In his practice, Ruiz most recently negotiated and documented a 10-year $10 million renewal of its lease of about 165,000 square feet of office and industrial premises in the San Fernando Valley for a global leader in connected car technology. He also recently represented a global aerospace and defense technology company in the negotiation and documentation of 10 separate lease renewals for office, research and development, and warehouse space. The timing and coordination of multiple ongoing transactions, totaling about 1,500,000 square feet throughout the West Los Angeles/South Bay region and among various landlord parties, was vital.
