It is with great sadness that we inform you of the unexpected passing of Carey Gunn Venditti, a partner in our Real Estate practice in Austin.

Carey joined us in April of 2017 and quickly became an important contributor to the firm and our global practice, leading the Austin Real Estate practice as well as participating in high-profile developments and investments, acquisitions, dispositions, and leasing and real estate financing transactions. Carey was also a valued member of the local community, having recently been named District Council Chair for ULI Austin, the Austin District Council of the Urban Land Institute, the first woman ever selected for that role.

Though with us for a short time, Carey quickly integrated into the office and firm and developed special relationships with colleagues and clients. Her passing is a huge loss and our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones during this very difficult time.
