"The merger of Jones Lang LaSalle and 360 Commercial Partners was driven by client demand for broader and deeper services, as well as the anticipated growth of Orange County," said Peter Belisle, Southwest Market Director, Jones Lang LaSalle. "This is a mutually beneficial merger for 360 Commercial Partners and Jones Lang LaSalle, as well as for our clients, who will now have access to a broader platform and local market expertise from a firm that is the clear leader in capturing real value from real estate."

The merger will deepen mutual strengths and bolster overall service delivery capabilities by:

  • Bringing clients significant depth and scale through a range of services, including strong industrial sales and leasing expertise and market-leading mid- and low-rise office building sales capabilities.
  • Enhancing Jones Lang LaSalle's already strong tenant representation practice as well as robust landlord leasing and project management capabilities in Orange County.

360 Commercial Partners' clients will benefit from Jones Lang LaSalle's integrated global services platform including its deep resources, cutting-edge tools and broad-reaching connections. Jones Lang LaSalle will gain access to a highly regarded team of professionals with deep local knowledge and penetration, a stellar reputation and extensive client relationships throughout Orange County, the Mid-County Los Angeles area and the Southern California region.

"This alliance of two great companies that are culturally aligned and have fantastic business synergies will create the strongest commercial real estate firm in the region," said Louis Tomaselli, Founder and President, 360 Commercial Partners. "We are now one company that has a shared vision to be the chosen real estate expert and strategic advisors to the leading owners, occupiers and investors throughout Orange County as well as around the world."

360 Commercial Partners' 12 employees will join Jones Lang LaSalle's 860-strong team across Southern California, bringing the total number of employees based in Orange County to 143. Jeff Ingham will lead the office and research and development practice and Louis Tomaselli will lead the firm's Orange County industrial practice. 

"By leveraging our strong combined office and industrial capabilities, we will have the opportunity to expand our services, with a focus on growing our landlord leasing and sales capability, strengthening our tenant representation practice and more effectively delivering all of our market leading services to the region. We will now be better prepared to help clients maximize the value of their real estate by anticipating change and seizing opportunities," added Ingham.
