Relevant Experience

Clients with commercial real estate interests benefit from Trish’s extensive track record supporting clients in mergers and acquisitions both as sellers and acquirers, as developers of commercial sites and larger mixed-use projects, representing both landlords and tenants in commercial leasing, and assisting with commercial property financing and local counsel opinions. Trish draws from her involvement with real estate issues, practices and trends in many sectors: hospitality, medical, restaurant, office, industrial, manufacturing, retail, agricultural and recreational. She also supports clients in matters involving a wide range of project real estate documents, plus complimentary law practice areas, including: oil and gas, environmental, construction, eviction, creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, statutory liens, water law, health care, like-kind and tax-deferred exchanges, zoning and land use, eminent domain, property tax exemption, and corporate/entity agricultural land ownership restrictions. Additionally, Trish’s wind energy practice spans work as developer’s counsel, and other times as landowner’s counsel, so that her work for clients is built on experience of issues from both angles. Wind energy projects are large-scale sophisticated real estate developments, involving many project real estate documents, plus permitting, regulatory, tax, power transmission, power sale, and financing aspects.
