Real Estate, Development & Construction

Smart legal solutions that help our clients build the future.

From public-private partnerships for massive projects like arenas and airports to small land-use deals, we understand the positive impact our clients’ real estate, development and construction projects have on the economy and communities.

Whether a project requires local government connections, a deep understanding of financing and tax credits, document analysis and drafting, or experienced litigators, we stand by our clients to help them seize opportunities and overcome obstacles.

No matter the size or complexity of the project, the more than 100 lawyers on Husch Blackwell’s Real Estate, Development & Construction team have the experience and bandwidth to drive client success. We partner with clients in nearly every state, as well as internationally.
