She has a reputation for solving title insurance problems, so that a transaction can go through and not get stopped.

It is a crucial part of making business happen in the commercial real estate world.”

In addition to providing title insurance for closings handled through Steeg Law, as an attorney with Orleans Title, the firm’s in-house title insurance agency, she works with the national accounts offices of its underwriters, First American Title Insurance Company and Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, acting as the Louisiana title agent for multi-site/multi-state transactions, including the sale or refinancing of entire portfolios of commercial properties.

Ms. Eyrich’s areas of practice include: real estate transactions, including negotiation of purchase agreements, leases and servitudes/easements; review and preparation of sale, loan and lease transaction documents; title examination and underwriting of title insurance commitments, policies and endorsements, including multi-site transactions involving national title insurance companies’ national business unit clients.
