David R. Madden

Dave Madden started at McGrath North as a summer associate in May of 2008.  Dave has been at McGrath North ever since and currently serves as the Practice Group Leader for the Real Estate and Environmental Practice Group.  Clients appreciate the practical, results-oriented and collaborative approach Dave brings to each and every project.  Dave is keenly aware of the budget constraints confronting many businesses and makes every effort to drive value to his clients at every turn.  Moreover, clients appreciate the passion and energy with which Dave practices law.  Dave’s broad experience extends to virtually every aspect of real estate law, with a special emphasis on the acquisition, entitlement and development of highly visible greenfield projects, including hyperscale data centers, large-scale industrial storage and distribution centers, and food manufacturing facilities.  While Dave has had the great honor of representing developers in connection with some of the largest industrial developments ever undertaken in the State of Nebraska, Dave also has significant experience representing developers on a national scale.  Dave currently serves as general outside counsel to a developer in connection with the developer’s build-to-suit industrial projects nationwide.

Dave spends the majority of his limited spare time chasing around his four young children, rooting on local sports teams, and pursuing opportunities to positively impact the Greater Omaha community.
