For over 30 years, Dave Kirkman has practiced transactional business and commercial law, with an emphasis on commercial real estate, including development, financing, leasing, acquisition and disposition.
Projects include market and affordable rental housing; single and multi-family residential; office; retail; hotel; warehouse; and industrial. Clients are exclusively borrowers, developers, owners and entrepreneurs; by design, no lenders are represented.
Dave’s practice requires a depth of expertise in ownership entity structuring, enforcement issues, creative financing, subdivision, environmental, tax and governance planning, and municipal controls. During the recent recession, Dave’s practice has included significant involvement in mortgage debt restructuring and workouts on behalf of borrowers and guarantors, including litigation in those areas.
