Holland & Hart Enhances Real Estate Development and Finance Practice with Terry Gorrell, Ned Giles, and Kevin Giles

DENVER (Nov. 13, 2019) – Holland & Hart announced the addition of partner Terry Gorrell, of counsel Ned Giles, and associate Kevin Giles, deepening Holland & Hart’s multifaceted real estate development and finance practice. Gorrell and Ned Giles join the firm’s Denver office, while Kevin Giles joins the Aspen office.

“We are thrilled to welcome Terry, Ned, and Kevin to the Holland & Hart Real Estate Development and Finance team,” said Practice Group Leader Chris Gunlikson. “They bring extensive real estate development experience in a variety of industry sectors that align well with our clients, as well as sophisticated commercial lending and leasing expertise that will enhance our team and benefit our clients.”

“As real estate development has become more complex, the needs of my clients became more complex, requiring a larger platform with the resources and depth of expertise to allow my clients to capitalize on growth opportunities,” said Gorrell. “At Holland & Hart, I found this fit for my clients and my practice.”

Gorrell draws on four decades of experience to guide clients through every phase of a development project, from the first look at the ground through due diligence, acquisition, ownership structuring, financing, entitlements, development, management, and disposition. He leverages real-world understanding of real estate development and management to counsel clients developing medical centers, multifamily and senior living facilities, business campuses and commercial centers.

“I am thrilled to rejoin Holland & Hart,” said Ned Giles, who began his career at the firm more than 45 years ago. “I chose Holland & Hart for the next phase of my career because I have worked with members of the Real Estate team and know first-hand the superior quality of work and the breadth of the team’s practice and expertise.”

Ned Giles delivers sophisticated counsel on complex business transactions to clients in the banking, real estate, and agribusiness industries. He is also a go-to resource for out-of-state lenders making large commercial loans securing Colorado-based assets. As a cattle rancher and irrigated farmer himself, Giles combines his business experience and extensive legal knowledge to help ranching and farming operations with a variety of legal needs, including entity structure, negotiating and securing loans, and buying and selling land and equipment.

Kevin Giles works with real estate developers and investors in acquisition and sale transactions for a wide range of commercial development projects. His commercial leasing practice includes representing both landlords and tenants from national retailers to regional and local investors.
