Moore & Van Allen Welcomes Eugene Allison to Commercial Real Estate Team
“Eugene is a real estate veteran with proven capabilities and experience handling an impressive portfolio of real estate projects. I am excited to welcome him to our team,” said MVA Member and Head of Commercial Real Estate Evan M. Bass. “The real estate environment in North Carolina and nationally has many unknowns, but our growing and talented team is equipped with the know-how to keep our clients’ projects moving forward while balancing their long-term objectives.”
With 30 years of real estate law experience serving both in-house and as external counsel to developers and investors, Eugene is skilled in providing all-encompassing guidance at every phase of a real estate project. He is committed to providing clients with a realistic picture of what a project will entail, to ensure they are prepared for any potential challenges and take the necessary steps to alleviate any risks. He has a meaningful understanding of the due diligence process, including resolving issues with titles, leases, zoning, and land use. He also shepherds clients through every nuance of a real estate transaction, including acquisitions, development, financing, leasing and disposition of commercial real estate properties.
Before launching his private practice, Eugene worked as a senior real estate attorney at the locally headquartered office of a national retailer. In this role, he advised on a range of transactional matters for stores located in rural, suburban, and urban areas across the nation. He also resolved landlord/tenant disputes related to operational matters and partnered closely with outside counsel in select state and federal litigation. He advised internal leadership on construction of new distribution centers of up to 1 million square feet in size, including negotiations with state and local government officials.
The firm’s Commercial Real Estate attorneys bring a diverse background and extensive experience in commercial real estate matters, including acquiring, financing, entitling, zoning, negotiating public-private partnerships; negotiating economic incentives; and developing, selling, and leasing commercial real estate. MVA has supported client projects with respect to office buildings, industrial sites, shopping centers, mixed-use developments, residential subdivisions, and hotels. Clients work directly with a responsive, client-focused senior attorney leading a group with varied skills and hourly rates matched to the project needs and the nature of the transaction. The team’s goal is to understand and meet clients’ objectives and deadlines at highly competitive rates.
