South Florida’s newest real estate law firm is a female-owned business led by two minority women who specialize in foreclosure litigation.

Jackson Singh, led by founding partners Racole Jackson and Nalini Singh, focuses on titleinsurance, landlord-tenant disputes, homeowner and condominium associations, contract review, closings, escrow, leasing and all aspects of real estate litigation and transactions.

The Boca Raton firm has a third attorney, associate Marie Ann Potopsingh, and a five-member support staff.

Jackson Singh opened its doors just as new regulations and bills create uncertainty forSouth Florida investors and home buyers.

New federal disclosure rules and forms that took effect Oct. 3, for instance, require lenders to provide accurate closing costs instead of estimates. The mortgage disclosure rules wiped out good-faith estimates and the HUD-1 settlement form that itemized charges imposed on borrowers and sellers in real estate transactions.

“Real estate closings have new rules,” Jackson said. “One of our most important goals is to keep abreast of cutting-edge legislation.”

Jackson is a broker and former chair, vice chair and fellow of the American Bar Association’s commercial real estate purchase and sale committee. She was managing principal of Jabez Legal in Delray Beach and an attorney at Aldridge Pite. Singh is a former Aldridge Pite colleague.

Singh’s practice focuses on residential and commercial transactions. Potopsingh brings a background as a real property law and civil trial attorney representing homeowner associations.
