We strive to lead our profession by giving the highest level of service and loyalty to our clients and by forging a team—lawyers, paralegals, staff, and other professionals—whose work is infused with our values.

Our Real Estate and Construction Practice Group is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the Intermountain West.

Our real estate lawyers are known for connecting buyers, sellers, developers, builders, lenders, investors, landlords, and tenants with legal support to finance, acquire, divest, manage, develop, and lease real property assets nationwide. Whether it is the acquisition and development or financing of one of the largest mixed-use projects in the United States, the lease of a retail site in a shopping center, or anything in between, our real estate team provides efficient and practical representation for our industry clients.

Knowledge is our product. The combined knowledge of our lawyers is the strength of that product. Making that knowledge readily available and accessible accelerates client time to solution, and improves the quality of our services.
