Weatherspoon & Voltz LLP, we focus on assisting clients with commercial real estate development, finance, investment and leasing.

We have extensive experience representing real estate developers and landlords, including acting as preferred outside counsel for a publicly traded real estate investment trust in connection with the acquisition, development and leasing of shopping centers.

We advise corporate and individual clients in connection with their real estate development and leasing matters, including industrial, retail and office leasing, sale/leaseback transitions, tax-free exchanges and financing of commercial properties nationwide. We are well-versed in all types of lending mechanisms, including CMBS, life insurance company and mezzanine financing. The firm also represents a number of financial institutions in connection with providing acquisition and construction financing for commercial development projects.

Our Methods

Weatherspoon & Voltz was founded in 2004 by two lawyers who didn’t like the bureaucracy and structure of large firms. The move was a response to their perception that existing North Carolina law firms were not providing the business and development community with the quality of legal services, delivered promptly and at a reasonable cost, that the rapid growth in North Carolina demanded.

The founding partners’ idea was to build a better law practice based on a few key principles:  excellence in client service, the highest quality of work product, unquestionable ethical standards and a commitment of service to the legal profession, our community and families. The firm’s roots are entrepreneurial, as are those of many of our clients. Our firm culture is relaxed but professional. Weatherspoon & Voltz does not seek to be the biggest or most high-profile law firm – we seek only to be the best.

Our client relationships are based on trust, an understanding of our clients’ businesses and a sincere commitment to achieving our clients’ objectives. We are dedicated to producing the lasting results that have enabled our clients to out-pace their competitors, and are proud to have earned a reputation as “deal-makers” that comes from helping our clients succeed.
