Joe Nuñez | Vantage Law Group
My passion for real estate, client service and entrepreneurial spirit drew me to Vantage Law Group. Whether developing a greenfield or brownfield, farmland or urban redevelopment, I’m enthused to provide client-centered value and creativity. As a partner in a downtown Minneapolis law firm, I negotiated and closed hundreds of acquisitions, dispositions and leases. As in-house counsel at Target, I negotiated and managed over $5 Billion in real estate developments, including economic incentive packages. My experience includes a development of railroad land, a 300-acre office campus, mixed-use projects, stores from 13,000 to 165,000 square feet, historically-sensitive redevelopment, and distribution centers and fulfillment facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
I believe that a lawyer’s primary goal is to facilitate problem-solving and draft succinct, understandable agreements, all in direct collaboration with the client. It shouldn’t be about me; it’s about facilitating client goals without churning billable time, and without making documents so complex that clients need to hire additional lawyers to administer the deal after it is closed. A client once called me a transformative negotiator because of my ability to cut through complications, formulate agreements that enhance the client’s position, and protect its interests with efficiency and collegiality.
For Vantage Law Group, building sustainable relationships mean the client and lawyers work as a team. We put clients first. We highlight responsiveness and flexibility. We have experience throughout the real estate law spectrum. We are passionate about partnering with clients to facilitate successful outcomes. This is a transformative way to deliver legal services. Let us show you how we build sustainable client relationships and get work done at reasonable billing rates and with flexible billing arrangements.
