Overview

David’s practice focuses on the ownership, development and investment of commercial real estate, such as office, industrial, retail, and multifamily projects. He assists his clients through all phases of real estate ownership including acquisition, financing (construction and permanent), leasing, development and construction, formation of joint ventures, and dispositions. His clients range from entrepreneurial developers to institutional owners and investors to national tenants and landlords.

David approaches a project with the understanding that a complex transaction requires collaboration of many parties with a unified, focused goal, and a truly successful transaction can result in relationships that will lead to future successful deals. In order to foster such relationships, a thorough understanding of the deal, an open, direct and honest line of communication and an understanding of the big picture are all necessary in order for legal counsel to provide value to the project. A sense of humor also helps. 

David serves as the Firm’s Real Estate Section CLE/Training Coordinator. Before joining Munsch Hardt, David served as  in-house counsel with Archon Financial, L.P., now known as Goldman Sachs Commercial Mortgage Capital, L.P.

David and his wife Katie have two children, Gus and Lucy.
