“Banner Real Estate Group has worked with the team at Weatherspoon and Voltz on several real estate and finance transactions. The entire staff is professional, competent, responsive and able to provide in depth advice and excellent service throughout every step of a transaction.
As local North Carolina counsel, they have assisted and advised our firm through complicated transactions. Beth Voltz and her staff take a proactive approach to identifying issues that may arise and have consistently been able to creatively solve problems. Weatherspoon and Voltz are zealous advocates for their clients; we know when working with them we will get superior service and practical, real-time advice.”
“My partners and I have been working with Beth Voltz and Weatherspoon & Voltz for over 10 years. In that time, our companies have successfully purchased, developed, and sold many retail projects under the careful watch of Beth and the Weatherspoon & Voltz team. Weatherspoon & Voltz excels at navigating through complex real estate contracts and leases as well as acquisition, financing and disposition closings. But at the same time, the firm’s experience keeps even the most complicated transaction from feeling overwhelming.
By way of example, Beth recently spearheaded a 32 acre, 21 parcel assemblage in Eastern North Carolina for us. In order to close the transaction, we had to (1) abandon a road that crossed many of the parcels in the assemblage, (2) enter into a Brownfield Agreement with the State of North Carolina (in order to deal with existing environmental contamination but still allow us to develop the project), (3) negotiate the buyout of several existing leases and relocate those existing tenants, and (4) negotiate numerous off site easements, all on an extremely tight schedule. Beth and her staff at Weatherspoon & Voltz were able to nimbly navigate all the issues as they popped up, keep a voluminous amount of information organized, communicate with all the Sellers (and their counsel) and coordinate everything for a flawless closing.”
“Weatherspoon & Voltz has been a vital part of our success at Grubb Ventures. In addition to their outstanding legal knowledge, Beth and Will understand what is important to our business and the manner in which we handle real estate. Our firm deals with a variety of asset classes and handles acquisition, management, leasing, and development. We rely on Weatherspoon & Voltz to advise us on all of the above. They are more than our law firm – they are key partners and, most importantly, friends.“
“Will Weatherspoon is the best professional we’ve worked with in the 20+ years that we’ve been in the real estate industry. Will understands what we ask him to do, remembers how we ask him to do it, and gets it done by the time we need it done. Will makes it feel like we have a general counsel on staff—somehow he has other clients, but it never feels that way to us.”
“I have worked with Will on numerous restructuring and work out matters as well as real estate matters. He is detail oriented, very responsive and very effective for his clients. He has also represented me personally on a real estate matter and I find him to be an excellent lawyer. I have been working with him for more than a decade.”
“I have worked with Will on a number of commercial transactions. I refer clients to him which speaks volumes about the high regard I have for his character and abilities.”
“I know of no attorney whom I would give higher marks in any matters related to real estate, whether for legal knowledge or the highest ethical standards, than Will Weatherspoon.”
