Denmark has practiced for over 35 years in the following areas: real estate, business and corporate transactions, estate planning, non-profit associations, and multi-employer benefit funds.

Mr. Denmark assists his real estate clients in the sale, acquisition, development, leasing, and financing of a variety of properties, including office buildings, shopping centers, apartment buildings, condominiums, and warehouses. He also represents clients in the sale and acquisition of businesses of all types, including manufacturers, distributors, professional service companies and, most extensively, construction companies. Mr. Denmark prepares buy-sell agreements for company principals, employment agreements for key personnel, and provides estate and business succession planning services.
