PRACTICE AREAS

In addition to representing clients in real estate acquisition, leasing, and development, Christie Lundquist is also an active Bar volunteer, representing low-income tenants facing eviction.

Christie Lundquist’s practice focuses on commercial real estate transactions. She assists her clients with leasing, acquisitions, and dispositions for a variety of asset classes, including complex lease and development transactions for large warehouse facilities. Christie also has experience establishing commercial and mixed-use common interest communities across Washington, and has entitled a number of local developments and provided land use counsel to homebuilders and commercial developers complying with the City of Seattle’s Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) program. This experience allows Christie to strategically advise clients on all life cycles of a project.

Before joining Pacifica, Christie practiced real estate and land use law at another Pacific Northwest law firm, and prior to law school, worked in the U.S. Senate for five years. She is an active supporter and volunteer with the King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project, which provides direct representation to low-income tenants facing eviction in King County.

Christie is a fourth-generation Northwesterner and grew up spending time in the mountains with her family. After heading East for a change of scenery and working in politics, she returned to Seattle for law school. She loves ski touring and rock climbing with her husband, baking, and getting lost in a good book.
