An accomplished real estate attorney with a focus on escrow and title insurance law, Sally Rowshan is the go-to specialist for complex escrow transactions in the state of California. She specializes in holding escrows, mergers and acquisitions, business, and asset sale escrows. Sally serves as a trusted advisor to clients throughout the state of California and strives to provide personalized services to all who enter her office at Hollywood Escrow.
Sally has been a practicing attorney since 2001, when she graduated from Georgetown University Law Center with a Juris Doctorate. While many of her classmates went straight into law firms after graduating, Sally was a natural-born entrepreneur. She established an underwritten title company called New Era Title in the Washington, D.C. area, where she underwrote for major national title insurance companies such as Chicago Title and Lawyer’s Title. New Era Title quickly became one of the largest per- volume title companies in northern Virginia with licenses in several states and multiple locations. In 2010, Sally sold the company to Lawrence E. Tucker, a fellow Georgetown Law grad, who still owns and operates it today under the name of Title One. She then moved back to her hometown of Los Angeles and returned to her area of expertise by opening an escrow company.
Located in Los Angeles, Hollywood Escrow is an independent escrow company licensed under the strict regulatory requirements of the California Department of Business Oversight. It is managed, owned, and operated by Sally and her team of escrow professionals.
As the founder and president of Hollywood Escrow, Sally has built her practice on her relationship with her fellow colleagues in the legal community. She is familiar with the complexities of acting as the escrow agent for the sale of businesses and products.
Since, March of 2020, she has been the paymaster for several transactions involving the sale of personal protective equipment (“PPE”). Recently, one of the most notable transactions she has worked on was the sale of a $540 million business buyout for a gaming software company. She is also the official escrow agent for many large franchises including Papa John’s Pizza, McDonald’s, and Menchie’s Ice Cream.
Entertainment attorneys and a number of film industry A-list celebrities go to her as their escrow agent for entertainment contracts when they need a trusted fiduciary who understands the underlying contract. However, the majority of Sally’s clients are members of the real estate community who entrust her and her team with handling their real estate transactions, most of which are in exclusive areas of Los Angeles.
In addition to owning and operating Hollywood Escrow, Sally provides legal consulting services to other Southern California escrow companies in regulatory and formation matters. Sally has two children: her daughter is a third-year student at USC Marshall School of Business, and her son is a senior in high school.
Sally helps further the legal industry as a member of The State Bar of California as well as the Virginia State Bar. In addition, she is an active member of the Escrow Institute of California, California Escrow Association, Los Angeles Escrow Association, and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, and the California Bar Association.
