At the Law Offices of Lance S. Davidson, P.C., we are committed to providing superior, value-added legal guidance to clients in Arizona, California and elsewhere. With 35 years of experience, Lance S. Davidson’s practice focuses on business and corporate, commercial and real estate law. His legal successes are testimony to his ability to provide superior and resourceful representation to business organizations, governmental agencies, and individuals.

Excellent legal counsel are not just well-educated; they strive to be resourceful and are dedicated to optimizing solutions for their clients. Lance S. Davidson, P.C. adds that extra dimension of skill and drive not only to protect but also to maximize results for the firm’s clients. Mr. Davidson provides sophisticated, thorough results in counseling, transactions and litigation, e.g., acquisitions and sales of businesses and real estate; oil & gas law; business planning, formation, syndication and management; real estate development and operations; commercial, corporate, and financial transactions; tax and regulatory research and employment and litigation management; trust and estate issues; and intellectual property matters.

Specific examples of Mr. Davidson’s expertise in handling, structuring or reviewing almost $3 billion of transactions, include: a $430 million leveraged buy-out; an $18 million financial lease; a $30 million, 215-room hotel development; rehabilitation of a historic hotel into a retail-office-hotel complex; commercial contracts for software and multimedia firms; national multi-state syndications and numerous sales and financings. He has formed and helped manage numerous corporate, limited liability company and partnership entities. Finally, he has worked on numerous related matters, including property development, ground leases, banking, and tax law.

Besides being an attorney, Mr. Davidson has been nationally certified as a Commercial-Investment Real Estate Specialist (CCIM). Accordingly, he is the rare attorney who, seeking business solutions, can understand the true financial consequences of his advice. Mr. Davidson has also served on the economic research staffs at two Washington, D.C. think tanks: The Brookings Institution and the Institute for Defense Analyses [the latter at which he held a Top Secret clearance while working for DARPA and the Pentagon, and wargaming on computers]. He has been granted patents by the United States Patent Office and the European Patent Office. Mr. Davidson has also had two books published by NY houses that sold 27,000+ copies.

Mr. Davidson earned his A.B. in Economics from Stanford University and his J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law. He is licensed as an attorney in Arizona, California, and [inactive] Oregon, and as a real estate broker in Arizona and California. Mr. Davidson has published numerous articles in leading law and real estate scholarly journals, e.g., The American Law Institute, New York University; University of California’s Hastings College of Law and the Commercial-Investment Real Estate Council. [See Google Scholar Citations for a fuller list of publications.] He authored three briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court successfully arguing the doctrine of illegal de facto segregation. As legal counsel with three national investment and development companies, Mr. Davidson was responsible for the firms’ transactions, management, and asset development.
