Pillsbury Winthrop's Orange County Office Welcomes Tax Attorney
Eric Overman's Practice Focuses on High Stakes Asset Finance

Costa Mesa, Calif.--- Pillsbury Winthrop LLP is pleased to announce that Eric M. Overman, of counsel, has joined the firm's Orange County office. He provides clients with advice in all aspects of asset finance, with an emphasis on lease financings. His practice serves clients in the manufacturing, mining, telecommunications, real estate and financial industries, primarily in the structuring of real estate and equipment deals.

Overman comes to the firm most recently from the New York office of Deloitte & Touche LLP. Prior to spending nine years with that firm, he was an associate for Brown and Wood LLP in New York. Overman earned degrees in Economics and International Studies from Pepperdine University and obtained a J.D. and a Master’s of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University.

"Eric's unique background in unlocking tax deductions through the assembly of large scale deals that match the right investor with the right business is the type of high value-added service that really benefits our clients," notes Craig Barbarosh, managing partner of Pillsbury Winthrop's Orange County office.

Overman's successful joint venture with a leading boutique investment bank has resulted in $2.5 billion of closed transactions. Among his recent transactions are: a $260 million leveraged lease of diesel engine manufacturing equipment; a $211 million sale-leaseback of U.S. paper products manufacturing equipment; and a $638 million sale-leaseback of a foreign food retailer's U.S. real estate assets.

"Pillsbury Winthrop's vast client base of Fortune 500 companies and large investment clients can open many new opportunities to explore ways for these businesses to keep their costs down through asset and lease financing," says Overman.
