About Todd

What types of legal issues do you help individuals and businesses resolve?

I have represented a broad range of clients over the years from startup ventures to national developers.  I try to bring a high level of creativity to commercial real estate transactions and developments while leading, structuring, and negotiating complex transactions for owners, developers, investors, joint ventures, and financial institutions. I have substantial experience with complex real estate acquisitions and sales, due diligence, tax-deferred exchanges, residential and commercial condominium developments, commercial and industrial leasing, financing transactions and loan documentation, zoning and land use matters, and land development and commercial construction projects.

How have your skills evolved in your career?

During my career at Rhoades McKee, I have developed the skill and enthusiasm to consider a client’s objectives, motivations, opportunities and difficulties, which I consider essential to providing timely and efficient legal services and counsel.

What did you learn in your first year of practice that you still utilize today?

Practicing law is all about the people and culture you surround yourself with. Working with a team of top-notch lawyers, paralegals, and legal assistants at Rhoades McKee in specialized practice areas is essential to developing and advancing creative deals and legal solutions for our clients.
