Samuel’s practice is based on a broad understanding of the real estate industry and a robust background in real estate and business litigation. As an associate in the firm’s Real Estate practice group and Commercial Litigation practice group, Samuel brings a cross-disciplinary perspective when advising his clients on their various real estate and business related matters. Whether his clients are pursuing the next business opportunity presented by the markets in which they operate or are navigating through disputes that inevitably arise along the way, Samuel’s approach is to always work collaboratively with his colleagues and clients to create a common sense, business-driven strategy infused with practical legal advice based on the nuances of the particular deal or dispute at hand. Through his practice, Samuel has direct experience with:

  • Commercial real estate disputes related to leasing, acquisitions, dispositions, development, zoning and land-use, and property rights
  • Commercial real estate transactions related to leasing, acquisitions, dispositions, and development
  • Shareholder and member disputes, and related business and financial issues arising therefrom

  • Litigating real property tax appeals and related financial disputes against municipalities and other governmental entities

Sam is a proud native of Kansas City, Missouri, and has a strong desire to use the tools and resources available to him to improve the community in which he lives and works. To that end, Sam dedicates a significant portion of his practice to providing pro bono services to non-profit organizations and indigent individuals in the Kansas City area related to real property issues, including representing a local neighborhood and community improvement association in its efforts to rehabilitate blighted properties throughout the neighborhood to put those properties back into productive use.
