No matter how large the problem or how complex the issue, Daniel Graves is willing to invest the time needed to fully understand the situation. This quality leads clients to trust Daniel to represent them, knowing he appreciates their positions and always will act in their best interests.

Just as importantly, Daniel is responsive to his clients. Prior to law school, Daniel worked for nine years in the Missouri State Capitol as a legislative staffer and a private consultant. The quick and fluid pace of the legislature taught him the importance of keeping in close contact with his clients and prepared him to react to changing circumstances with confidence that he understands his clients’ needs. As an attorney, Daniel has built on this early experience, helping numerous commercial real estate companies thrive in an ever-changing business environment.

  • Drafted and negotiated loan documents for single property and multi-property deals across the nation while addressing relevant securitization questions and resolving title and survey issues.
  • Represented an international commercial office space tenant in securing favorable terms for numerous leases across the country.
  • Negotiated a compromise lease amendment on behalf of a regional media company that bought a piece of property from a tenant that had breached the lease.
