Boyer focuses his practice on structuring, drafting, and negotiating business and real estate deals, advising individuals and businesses on complex multifamily, commercial, and industrial transactions. He has extensive experience counseling clients on real estate matters, including development, acquisition, disposition, construction, securities, financing, leasing, and land use. Boyer also represents institutional lenders, including multi-national banks, credit unions, and loan servicers, on financing matters involving acquisitions, transfers, refinancings, and investment strategies.

David’s experience with a broad range of development, finance, construction, and real estate matters will help us serve our clients in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the U.S.”
