He counsels his clients in intricate negotiations among developers, joint venture partners, governmental entities, and tenants to create and implement complex contracts.

Mr. Mulrenin represents many large regional real estate developers and retail center owners who are industry leaders in creating innovative urban and suburban projects. His role in advising developers commences with the initial acquisition of land or existing redevelopment site. In this acquisition phase, he advises clients on due diligence, entity formation, joint development agreements, reciprocal easement agreements, operating agreements, and pre-development and acquisition financing.

During the construction phase, Mr. Mulrenin negotiates any issues involving equity partners or private offerings, as well as construction and permanent loans. As a project nears completion, Mr. Mulrenin provides the client with the full spectrum of legal leasing expertise, including lease negotiations and preparation of form leases, work exhibits, and tenant guarantees. Mr. Mulrenin has found that clients are better served when counsel plays an integral role in all phases of development, starting with acquisition and financing, continuing through development and leasing, and concluding with disposition of projects.
