Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

My experience includes private practice and in-house corporate counsel positions. I assists clients with a wide range of legal needs such as buyer and seller representation on residential and commercial real estate transactions; unlawful detainer actions; contract negotiations and disputes; commercial lease negotiation and enforcement; trademark registrations and intellectual property matters; franchise transactions and disputes; and complex business and commercial real estate matters. As General Counsel and Vice President of Seattle Coffee Company, the parent company of Seattleā€™s Best Coffee and Torrefazione Italia, I assisted with the development of retail stores and coffee houses located in key demographic markets across the country and with international product distribution and licensing. I have negotiated and documented real estate transactions; franchise compliance documents, territory development and single unit franchise agreements; product development and licensing agreements; and other corporate transactions for private and franchise enterprises. Prior to entering the practice of law, I served as senior vice president of a successful and highly regarded multi-state commercial real estate development company where I was responsible for the management and leasing of a portfolio of first-class shopping centers exceeding one million square feet for institutional investors including Aetna Realty Investors and Prudential Real Estate Investors. In addition to his leasing and property management experience, Lee has been involved in real estate site selection for a number of successful regional and national tenants and the development and redevelopment of shopping centers and retail properties.
