Blake is a service-minded professional who assists clients with real property needs for renewable energy projects.

After earning his undergraduate degree, Blake embarked on a career in public service as a legislative aide to a U.S. senator. He enrolled in law school with the intention of pursuing a legal career with community service at its heart and, to that end, worked in a D.A.’s office and interned with the Environmental Protection Agency during law school. However, his strong belief in service led him to defer his legal career following graduation and instead he earned a commission in the United States Marine Corps, where he served as an infantry officer for four years, which time included overseeing combat operations for an infantry company of nearly 200 Marines first in Afghanistan and later in Yemen.

Blake continues to bring the service ethos honed in the military and the public sector to his law practice. Enthusiastic about the positive impact real estate development has on communities, he began his legal career at a real estate-focused firm, where he gained experience with real property acquisitions and dispositions, leasing, financing, title review, complex purchase and sale agreements, and franchise work. However, his early political service had left him with a strong interest in renewable energy: Blake had previously worked for a senator on the forefront of the renewable energy transition, and he joined Husch Blackwell in order to focus his real estate practice on the renewables sector.

Today, Blake represents developers of wind, solar, and battery storage projects across the country, from initial siting all the way through investment and financing, property rights acquisition, and construction. He loves serving clients who are leading the way toward a sustainable future and regularly performs title and survey review; assists with landowner negotiations; and drafts and negotiates purchase and sale, leasing, interconnection, site control, financing, distribution, and joint operating agreements.

Clients appreciate not only Blake’s dedication to service, but also his transparency and his communication skills. Blake’s time in the Marines taught him how essential information sharing is, and his goal is to always be up front with clients, keep them fully informed, and do whatever it takes to get the answers they need.

Outside the Office

Born and raised in Minnesota, Blake discovered the joys of the Colorado lifestyle when he attended college in Colorado Springs. Although his career and military service brought him to various parts of the country and the world, he found himself repeatedly returning to Colorado. He especially enjoys spending time with his family and embracing the outdoors, whether skiing, hiking, backpacking, or camping. Blake always says that a bad day outside is better than a good day anywhere else.

Community Leadership

A veteran himself, Blake volunteers with Service to School, a program that helps active-duty military prepare university applications and successfully transition to college or graduate school. Blake regularly counsels servicemembers on what graduate school, especially law school, can mean after military service and advises on potential career paths.
