I work hard to understand your business’ situation and needs. I give you the knowledge you need to make the best decision for your company.

I have practiced commercial real estate law for more than 30 years, which means I’m well versed in the art of helping businesses navigate complex real estate laws as they buy or sell property. Commercial property is one of the biggest investments your business will make, and the last thing you want is to feel as though you don’t have control throughout the process. That’s where my experience can help.

Processes such as investigating property titles, researching the best approach for your business, and determining the long-term consequences of the purchase are unique to one another. But they do share one thing in common: They shouldn’t be approached lightly. I diligently work for your business by explaining your options, providing insightful perspective, and fighting for you. I will account for your business’ needs at every point along the way.

Commercial Real Estate Attorney in Austin, TX

More than 40 years of experience

Commercial real estate is unique from residential real estate. Whereas the typical real estate purchase will involve one individual or family selling a house to another, commercial real estate must also account for the long-term needs and circumstances of the businesses involved. It should come as no surprise, then, that you wouldn’t want to hire just any attorney to help you through the process of buying or selling property for your business. 

The best person you could have on your side is one who fully understands how businesses operate and is well versed in all aspects of commercial real estate law. You need someone who can look out for the short-term and long-term best interests of your business while helping you complete a real estate purchase. You need an attorney like Stephen Mitchell.

I have lived in Austin, Texas since 1984, and I’ve been practicing law in Texas for more than 40 years. I’ve helped businesses in and out of state draft up management, consulting, service, licensing, and distributorship agreements. I’ve also helped businesses buy and sell commercial property that meets their needs. I’ve seen it all and I can use my knowledge to your advantage.

My office on Spicewood Springs Road is easily accessible to downtown Austin and the surrounding communities. I’ve served businesses from all around the metro area, including neighborhoods such as West Lake Hills, Rollingwood, Lost Creek, Sunset Valley, Manchaca, Hays, Bluff Springs, Pilot Knob, Garfield, Hornsby Bend, Daffan, Pflugerville, and Wells Branch. I’ve represented both local businesses and businesses operating in other states.

I want to earn your respect, and I can’t do that by providing poor service and lackluster representation. No matter what aspect of commercial real estate law you need my help with, you’ll see from day one that I work hard to win your satisfaction. Schedule a consultation today.
