Mark E. Ellinghouse ’06 of Weintraub Tobin has been named a 2020 40 Under 40 honoree by the Sacramento Business Journal. The honor follows on the heels of his inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2021. This year, Best Lawyers launched “Ones to Watch,” a recognition for attorneys earlier in their careers, and Ellinghouse was included in the inaugural edition.
Ellinghouse had previously been named to the 2020 Northern California Rising Stars list, which consists of those who are either 40 years of age or younger or have been practicing for 10 years or less. The Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state. Ellinghouse works in the firm’s Sacramento office.
A shareholder in the Weintraub Tobin’s real estate and corporate practice groups, Ellinghouse has experience in a broad spectrum of real estate matters, including retail, industrial, office, multifamily, land and mixed-use projects, and been a part of many of the major deals on the Capitol Corridor over the last several years. He represents individuals and entities large and small, regularly advising clients regarding corporate transactional matters including formation, mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnering and joint ventures.
Ellinghouse’s community involvement in Sacramento includes serving five years on the Partnership Council of the American Cancer Society Capital Invitational golf tournament, part of that time as chair. He just finished his term as chair for the Urban Land Institute Young Leaders Group board, fundraising for and taking part in that group’s philanthropic initiatives, and worked with his Leadership Sacramento class to fundraise and complete the class community project at WellSpring Women’s Center.
Additionally, Ellinghouse has taken on leadership roles within Weintraub Tobin, serving on the professional development/marketing committee and the attorney education committee. Before becoming a shareholder, he was Associate Liaison for the Firm, serving as the communication channel between young lawyers and management.
