Raymond G. Truitt, a Ballard Spahr partner known for his work on commercial real estate financing, leasing, development, and restructuring, has been elected treasurer of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL), a national association of distinguished real estate lawyers.

Mr. Truitt is based in Ballard Spahr’s Baltimore office and serves as the firm’s Managing Partner of Finance and Operations, as a member of the Executive Team of the firm’s Management Committee, and as a member of Ballard Spahr’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council.

Mr. Truitt’s election as ACREL treasurer during the organization’s recent annual meeting in Chicago continues his leadership within the organization, having served the past year as secretary and prior to that on the ACREL Board of Governors. In addition to his work with ACREL, Mr. Truitt is a member of the Maryland State Bar Association and served as Chair of both its Section of Real Property and the Section’s Code Revision Committee. He is also a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers, for which he acted as Chair of its 2014 U.S. Law Conference.

ACREL is widely regarded as the premier organization of U.S. real estate lawyers. Admission is by invitation only and following a rigorous screening process. The organization's distinguished, nationally known lawyers have been elected to fellowship for their outstanding legal ability, experience, and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of real estate law. ACREL presents professional education seminars and conferences, holds networking events, publishes articles and other educational and informational materials, and performs public service projects.

Ballard Spahr has a long tradition of leadership in ACREL, including having three partners serve as presidents of the College: the late Richard R. Goldberg, retired partner Morton P. Fisher, Jr., and Roger D. Winston, leader of the firm’s Mixed-Use, Condominium, and Multifamily Development practice. Tina R. Makoulian, leader of the firm’s Real Estate Development and Transactions Group, is serving her second three-year term on the ACREL Board of Governors.
