Lewis Roca has a long tradition of providing legal representation to real estate brokerage licensees. Our lawyers advise small and large brokerage companies on many of the legal and regulatory issues they confront. We have experience advising every type of real estate brokerage licensee, including commercial, residential, investment, raw land, shopping centers, office, property managers, leasing, industrial, and farm and ranch.

Our lawyers have drafted legislation affecting the real estate brokerage industry for consideration by legislators in various states. We have also appeared before real estate commissions and other regulators. As brokerage firms expand their relationships with real estate lenders, title companies, appraisal services, and mortgage brokers, our team advises on affiliated business arrangements, franchise law, and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) compliance, as well as successfully litigating on related issues.

Lewis Roca has served as legal counsel to the Colorado Association of REALTORS®, the Wyoming Association of REALTORS®, and the National Association of REALTORS®, among others.
