Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease is pleased to announce that Sheila Nolan Gartland, a partner in the firm’s Columbus office, has been inducted into the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL).  Admission to the organization is by invitation only after a rigorous screening process, making it the premier organization of real estate lawyers in the United States.

According to ACREL, the organization’s distinguished, nationally known lawyers are selected to fellowship for their outstanding legal abilities, experience and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of real estate law.  Gartland joins Vorys partner Steve Buchenroth as an ACREL fellow. 

Gartland regularly advises clients in the acquisition, sale, development (including annexation and zoning matters), leasing and disposition of real property.  She also represents clients in connection with oil and gas transactions including leasing, acquisitions and joint ventures. 

In addition, Gartland works with clients on environmental remediation compliance and acquisitions and dispositions related to bankruptcy proceedings. She assists clients with obtaining economic development incentives and other real estate financing, including federally insured commercial mortgage lending and other commercial loans.

Gartland received her J.D. from The University of Toledo College of Law and her B.A. cum laude from the University of Dayton.
