Pircher, Nichols & Meeks Joint Venture Transactional Competition
Sponsored by the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate and the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy.
Details: Students from the law and business schools will be teamed up and presented with a simulated real estate deal prepared by Phil Nichols, a founder of Pircher, Nichols & Meeks and Kevork Zoryan, Managing Director at Morgan Stanley.
The teams of 2-6 students will then work through both legal and business issues that may arise in such transactions. After working through the fact pattern, the teams will submit their responses to various questions before participating in a presentation with Mr. Nichols and Mr. Zoryan. During the presentation, Nichols and Zoryan will share their knowledge of the field as they walk students through the more subtle points of the deal before announcing the winner of the competition, which will be the team of business and law students that best answered the questions posed.
Students with an interest in real estate transactions and/or joint venture agreements are encouraged to participate. This opportunity is aimed at giving students i) a sense of what goes on in transactional law practice, particularly in the field of real estate, ii) an opportunity to gain experience considering the important business terms that go into a joint venture agreement, iii) an opportunity to work closely and develop relationships with their peers at the law/business schools, iv) augment their resumes with transactional real estate exposure, and v) a chance at a $3,000 prize, courtesy of the Lowell Milken Institute!
