She has particular experience in hotel acquisition, development and management, including cross-border commercial transactions.

Not only will Rasha’s knowledge of the leisure and hospitality industry grow this practice, but her extensive experience handling international real estate transactions, particularly in the Middle East, brings a unique and invaluable level of expertise to her clients and colleagues,” said Eric Fuglsang, chair of the Real Estate Group.

Gad earned her J.D., with honors, from Chicago-Kent College of Law; her M.B.A, with honors, from Illinois Institute of Technology; and her B.A., magna cum laude, from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame.
