Ashley Deweese is a real estate deal-maker who takes pride in collaborating with all the parties involved – from purchasers and sellers to developers and investors – to work toward the creation of something new. Ashley is driven, knowledgeable and most importantly, a team player looking to help her clients seek out and close deals.
Ashley focuses her practice in commercial real estate in the industrial, multi-family, office, hospitality, retail, healthcare, and solar arenas, working on various investment, development and leasing transactions from inception through closing.
She has broad experience representing buyers, sellers, developers, borrowers and investors in nationwide acquisitions, dispositions and development of vacant and developed real property. She also advises landlords and tenants in leasing and management of commercial properties, fund managers and investors in joint venture and private equity transactions, and borrowers and lenders in the negotiation and due diligence aspects of real estate financing.
She also has experience with corporate transactions, including the formation and structuring of property-related joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions, and the tax aspects of such deals.
What Ashley enjoys most about her work is the people, particularly connecting like-minded people to one another. She proactively seeks out opportunities to leverage her network and build bridges, which may benefit those individuals and their businesses.
During law school, Ashley gained legal experience as an intern with Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and Sun Holdings, Inc., and as an extern for the Honorable Barbara Houser, chief judge of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas.
