With over 30 years of experience as a lawyer, retailer, broker, and restructuring expert, Nina L. Kampler formed Kampler Advisory Group in 2012 to provide strategic
advisory services to both U.S.-based and global retail players. With access to off-market retail development transactions and leveraging curated industry relationships, Kampler provides competitive
advantage to both owners and retailers in the acquisition and leasing businesses. Kampler connects people and deals in the retail real estate arena, working with both landlords and retailers, and
creates value by introducing the right players at the right time with the right information.
Specifically, Kampler offers services in three distinct yet interrelated domains:
- On the developer front, Kampler
provides strategic leasing advisory work to landlords. Streetscape and shopping center developers—across the spectrum from large REITS to more boutique, urban-focused players to individual investors
and private high net-worth families—are all seeking new and fresh retailers to bring to their markets. With the evolving landscape of retail real estate, which began with the 2008 meltdown and
continues to reshape as omni-channel shopping replaces traditional brick and mortar, the global consumer is looking for experiential shopping. Kampler leverages her access to retailers and her
international travel experiences to source and match retailers with the right projects.
- On the retailer
front, Kampler draws on her vast and multi-channeled network to build teams that support retailer roll-outs and and that serve as a conduit for domestic and foreign retailer expansion
- Providing strategic and expert witness consulting, Kampler is engaged generally by law firms, and
sometimes by cients directly, to utilize her confluence of business and legal expertise to ascertain what is really happening in the marketplace. Kampler gathers intelligence and synthesizes
off-market and offline information, allowing smart decisions and negotiations to take place, seamlessly and behind the scenes. Kampler creates reports, negotiates deals, and creates and produces
optimal results and winning strategies.
Kampler maintains strategic alliances with the industry’s top real estate service providers to create unique value for each of her assignments. Her strategic partners
include Hilco Real Estate, Kampler’s restructuring and disposition partner, and Madison Commercial Real Estate, a fully-compliant joint-venture title insurance company.
