Thomas L. Palotas

Of Counsel

Tom Palotas represents lenders in agricultural and commercial real estate transactions, with a focus on title, loan documentation and negotiation, and commercial leasing. He graduated from the University of Washington in 1976 with a B.A. degree in Business Administration, cum laude, then worked in business and finance at Boeing Computer Services. He earned his law degree at the University of Washington with honors in 1984. He is a member of the Washington State Bar Association.

Tom was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, of Hungarian parentage, has lived in Spain and India, and has traveled to more places that most people have heard of. He is fluent in Hungarian and speaks just enough Spanish to confuse people in Tucson where he shares a home with his wife and Nazar the Wonder Dog. When he’s not working, Tom enjoys video editing, cooking, moving rocks around on his little acre of the Sonoran Desert, and collecting wildflower seeds. He has written several books on Shivabalayogi, edited the Yoga Vasishta, and prepared an English translation of the historical novel, Egri Csillagok. You will just have to ask him about that.

Representative Transactions
  • Drafted and negotiated mortgage loans on orchards, vineyards, rangelands, timber lands, wineries and fruit processing facilities, in Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona, including title review, inter-creditor agreements with crop lenders and equipment lenders, co-lender participation agreements, and multi-state transactions. Transactions ranged from a few hundred thousand dollars to several hundred million dollars.
  • Represented lenders and borrowers on construction and permanent mortgage loans on office, apartment, shopping center, industrial and condominium projects in various states, including loan transactions involving tax-exempt bond financing, high-rise downtown construction projects, and regional shopping centers.
  • Negotiated and drafted office, industrial and retail leases for landlords and tenants.
Representative Clients/Cases
  • Access Business Finance
  • The Prudential Insurance Company of America
