My line of work is sometimes referred to as “dirt law.” But, like many of our clients, I consider myself to be a builder at heart, both in personality and practice. It is extremely rewarding to help create something out of nothing, to watch as a dynamic project springs forth—above or below— the surface of a formerly raw piece of land, and to know that both that land and the opportunity has been put to its best and fullest use.
David Heidenreich focuses his practice on every aspect of commercial real estate and energy transactions—from initial due diligence, financing, and acquisition, through development or redevelopment, stabilization, and ultimately to a sale. His real estate experience includes advising owners, investors (both closely held as well as institutional), developers, advisors, and institutional lenders on a wide variety of transactions—including business acquisitions, complex finance transactions, multi-family and hotel and resort development projects, mixed-use projects, industrial warehouse projects, and commercial leasing. His energy practice includes the representation of independent oil and gas operators and developers in all aspects of their businesses, as well as the representation of energy lenders and investors.
David strives to serve his clients not only as a skilled negotiator and technical draftsman, but also as a counselor with the proven ability to help them strike an appropriate balance between legal and business considerations. “I often serve as a sounding board for strategic business decisions,” he explains. “And the reason clients trust me to do so is that I have taken the time to get to know them, what motivates and drives them, and probably even the names of their kids. That’s all part of it for me.”
In David and Carrington Coleman, clients appreciate that they can get the same level of commercial real estate and energy development expertise they might find at a much larger firm, while not sacrificing approachability, responsiveness, or superior client service.
