Goulston & Storrs, an Am Law 200 firm, is pleased to announce that Meghan Hottel-Cox, a real estate attorney in the firm’s Washington, DC office, has been named this year’s Emerging Leader by CREW DC. Hottel-Cox will be honored on October 17 at CREW DC’s 40th Anniversary Awards Celebration at the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian.

Hottel-Cox will receive one of only four individual awards – Emerging Leader, Woman of Impact, Champion, and Game-Changer – being given out this year. Two influential projects that have changed the DC landscape will also be recognized. The CREW DC awards celebrate leaders in the commercial real estate industry.

At Goulston & Storrs, Hottel-Cox focuses her practice on land use, working with real estate developers and educational institutions on a wide range of zoning matters. Some of her high-profile projects over the past few years include working on the zoning for the $250 million RiverPoint development at the U.S. Coast Guard’s former headquarters on the Anacostia River, helping Events DC obtain the zoning approvals to develop a multi-field sports complex at the Robert F. Kennedy Stadium site in DC, and leading the development of Trinity University’s 2016 Campus Plan.

Hottel-Cox is the co-founder of Q City, a first-of-its-kind group in DC for LGBTQ+ professionals in corporate real estate. She is a member of Goulston & Storrs’ Inclusionary Advisory Committee, where she spearheaded the firm’s initiative to conduct mandatory firmwide implicit bias training. She also does extensive pro bono zoning work for well-known DC non-profits including Martha’s Table, Jubilee Housing, and So Others Might Eat.

She received her J.D., Order of the Coif, with High Honors, from George Washington University Law School in 2014 and her B.A., summa cum laude, from the College of William & Mary in 2010.
