As a member of the firm’s Real Estate section, Travis represents clients in a broad array of transactional matters relating to commercial real estate. He regularly counsels clients on legal issues that arise in connection with the ownership, acquisition, disposition and leasing of real property.

Travis has extensive experience representing landlords and tenants in drafting and negotiating commercial office leases. He also represents purchasers and sellers of real estate assets with respect to contract preparation and negotiation, title and survey review and other due diligence matters. In addition, he advises clients on the process and procedures for the development of real property. His practice also includes the representation of banks and financial institutions in making loans secured by real property and other collateral, as well as the representation of lien holders in foreclosure proceedings.

In addition to his commercial real estate practice, Travis has a strong interest in the use of legal tools to facilitate and incentivize land conservation, including conservation easements and mitigation banks.
