Ballard Spahr Attorney Donna Brady Receives Innovation and Technology Award from the Commercial Observer

November 16, 2022

Donna Brady, Senior Counsel in Ballard Spahr’s nationally recognized P3/Infrastructure Group, was honored last month with the Innovation + Technology Award from the Commercial Observer.

Ms. Brady was one of three honorees at the Oct. 27 Design + Construction summit in New York City, a conference presented by the Commercial Observer, a national trade publication focused on the commercial real estate industry.

The Innovation + Technology Award, one of three Women in Real Estate Design & Construction Awards, is granted to a woman deemed by the publication to be “moving the real estate and building industry forward through the use of new strategies, ideas, and technology.”

Ms. Brady, based in Los Angeles, has advised several groundbreaking projects in the transportation, water, energy, and social infrastructure spaces, with particular emphasis on representing state and local transportation agencies in contracts for construction and operation of highways and bridges, as well as other transportation infrastructure, including rail, ferry, and airport projects.

She was instrumental in helping to develop California’s FasTrak, the nation’s first interoperable electronic highway toll collection system. She served as a key player handling transactions and regulatory law for FasTrak and wrote the first interoperable toll agreements. Most recently, Ms. Brady has worked on what will be the landmark University of Florida Central Energy Plant P3 at the school’s main campus in Gainesville.
