Dan Burke, a member of the Financial and Real Estate Services practice group, counsels clients on matters that include the purchase, sale, leasing, financing and development of real estate. Recognizing that the best result may not always be the most obvious, Dan prides himself in providing actionable, results-oriented advice that goes beyond basic legal analysis.

National and regional companies turn to Dan for guidance in the site selection and project approval process. He has helped obtain planning and zoning approvals for a variety of uses.

A growing portion of Dan’s practice focuses on development incentives. He represents developers in implementing incentives such as tax increment financing, Missouri’s Chapter 100 industrial revenue bonds, transportation development district (TDD) and community improvement district (CID) financing, and Chapter 353 tax abatement.

Dan also assists lenders with loan documentation, modification and loss mitigation.  He negotiates and facilitates favorable results through workouts, restructurings, receiverships and liquidation of real estate portfolios, including foreclosure and deficiency pursuit where required.
