Taylor keeps business implications top of mind when negotiating and drafting real estate agreements for clients.

Clients value Taylor’s background as in-house counsel for a large national food and beverage distributor. She routinely negotiated the acquisition and sale of distribution rights to major brands. Taylor also handled labor & employment matters that included Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) investigations, mediation and litigation. However, much of her experience – which she now brings to real estate clients – is in negotiating, drafting and reviewing:

  • Purchases and sales
  • Development
  • Lease agreements
  • Easements
  • Phase 1 environmental assessments
  • Economic incentives

Taylor offers clients the time, dedication and attention to detail required for successful real estate transactions. She understands what legal recommendations look like from the client’s side of the table. She ensures transactions reflect the client’s goals, with the aim of developing lasting relationships.
