Julie E. Green

Of Counsel



Julie E. Green is Of Counsel in the Firm’s Corporate practice group, where after a 40-year career of initial public offerings, private investments, structured financings, SEC filings, governance, equity and employee compensation restructurings, mergers & acquisitions and negotiated settlements involving various participants with an interest in the capitalization table, she currently desires to focus her practice as follows:

  • Using her problem-solving skills, breadth of experience and network of professionals to provide potential solutions to vexing situations involving a company’s capital structure requiring a multidisciplinary set of skills (securities, tax, employee compensation, finance, accounting, etc.).
  • Serving on a Board of Directors or other governing body.
  • Serving as lead or additional partner for mergers & acquisitions or financing transactions.

Julie’s clients include real estate, healthcare, and technology companies. From 2001-2022, she served as outside general counsel to a privately-held Delaware limited liability company in the real estate industry that was an SEC-reporting company from 2001-2007. She designed the recapitalization plan to take the Company private in 2007 and advised management and the Board in implementing a deferred compensation program and equity buy back program for the Members in order to return capital to the Members from the sale of over $1 billion of real estate from 2018-2022.

Julie has been in practice since 1983, first as an associate with a Wall Street law firm (1983-1990) and later as a shareholder with a large Sacramento firm (1990-1999). She co-founded healthcare and business law firm Salem & Green in 1999, which merged with and into Weintraub in 2022.

Julie received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Southern California in 1980, where she majored in Political Science, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and received the Order of the Laurel (highest honor for graduating undergraduates.) At USC, she was President of both the Mortar Board and the Trojan Democrats. She played basketball for the USC Trojan’s women’s team from 1976-78. Julie received her Juris Doctor in 1983 from the University of Virginia School of Law. She is a past-President of the Sacramento County Corporate and Securities Bar Association (currently known as the Business Law Section).
