Managing Partner Thomas List spoke with Law Week Colorado about Denver’s current real estate market and shared where he foresees the real estate market heading moving into 2022.
The interview was featured in a Law Week Colorado article, Colorado’s Best Law Firms 2022: Real Estate Law, was published on November 22. An excerpt from the article is below.
Denver has remained a hot market for real estate despite the COVID-19 Pandemic and disruptions to other industries. With the number of people moving to Colorado throughout the last year, it is unsurprising that Front Range firms continue to remain regional and national leaders in real estate law and litigation. Law Week talked to attorneys from several top-tier firms in the field to understand what makes them the best and where they foresee the real estate market heading as we move into 2022.
“Since the onset of the pandemic we have been surprised and pleased with the continued deal flow,” said Tom List, a managing partner at Moye White LLP. “It just demonstrates that in Colorado and Denver in particular, and really across the country, that real estate is still a strong sector.”
Moye White received a Tier 1 regional ranking in real estate law and commercial litigation. The Denver-based firm has two locations in Colorado and one in Atlanta. With the upward trend in the market, they’ve also had to add to their team of attorneys.
“Since May/June the leasing volume has really started to tick up,” said List. “We’ve had to add very talented people to our group. Since the pandemic, we’ve added maybe six new attorneys just in our real estate group. I don’t see that slowing down at all in 2022.”
List also predicts that office leasing changes are coming in 2022.
“While flexibility is here to stay, the workplace still offers and provides community and collegiality and I think people miss that and I think people are anxious to get back to that,” said List. “It also reinforces what a great place Denver and Colorado really is.”
