Lee H. Hamann

“I like a challenge, great or small, and the first order of business is to simplify.”

Clients engage Lee on a wide range of real estate transactions and issues, and related business transactions. This includes sale, purchase and leasing of real estate, construction and architectural contracts, property development, planning and zoning and financing on local, national and international levels. He also deals with a variety of business and corporate matters.  Lee excels at focusing on his client’s needs and objectives while at the same time working with the legitimate concerns of other parties to the transaction to get to a solution which gives everyone the opportunity for a successful outcome.

Case Study/Success Story:

Lee has been an integral strategist and actuator in a number of important corporate building projects over the years.  Most recently Lee was involved from the outset in the site selection, due diligence and acquisition, deal structure, securing of entitlements and economic incentives, and putting in place a number of ancillary contracts for a time sensitive corporate headquarters building occupying an entire city block.  Keeping the various private and public stakeholders aligned and moving forward in a timely and cooperative manner was absolutely critical to keeping the project on track and within budget.

“Ultimately, the success of a transaction depends on keeping it simple and getting people to work together toward a common goal.  This is what I do.”

Lee has been a shareholder of McGrath North since 1981.
