Scot Ginsburg has been solely focused on exclusively representing tenants and owner-users of commercial space throughout his commercial real estate career. With over $2 billion in transaction volume and 14,000,000 square feet of experience, Scot specializes in high-tech, life science, business service, research and development, and other growth-oriented industries. His commitment to provide the highest level of service is evidenced by his loyal clients whom he has repeatedly represented.

Prior to joining Hughes Marino, Scot was formerly managing director at Jones Lang LaSalle and principal with The Staubach Company. Scot’s passion for representing tenants exclusively comes from his personal experience as co-founder of a former high-tech company, where he found himself as the tenant on an uneven playing field with the landlords and their listing brokers. Applying this knowledge, Scot fully understands each client’s unique requirement from the tenant’s perspective and is a passionate advocate on his clients’ behalf.

Scot brings a wealth of experience to his clients, ranging from lease acquisitions, lease renewals, and early lease restructures, to build-to-suit developments, property acquisitions, and specialized tenant improvements designed for today’s demanding business service, technology and biotech corporations.
