From August 2003 through September 2012, Pam served as Vice President, Associate General Counsel and Assistant Corporate Secretary, with primary responsibility for all legal aspects of the leasing and asset management groups of Cousins, including oversight of all office and retail leases and of all litigation affecting the retail or asset portfolio, including bankruptcy matters and trademark defense.

Prior to joining Cousins, Pam practiced with the Atlanta-based national law firm of Eversheds Sutherland, where her focus was fairly evenly divided between development, leasing and lending, with the majority of that time spent representing retail developers in those practice areas.
