It’s no stretch to say that Kurt Nondorf has the kind of commercial real estate business expertise valued by clients. He has more than 25 years of experience handling acquisitions, sales and financings of complex commercial properties. He is so well regarded by clients that he has been repeatedly named to the Chambers USA list of leading lawyers for real estate. He’s even been sought out to represent other law firms in build-to-suit and other major lease arrangements, making him a true “lawyer to other lawyers.”
But, beyond all of those individual accolades, Kurt’s greatest strength may be his ability to assemble and manage top-notch teams of attorneys to serve clients’ needs.
“Our approach is to match the right personnel to the needs of each particular deal,” Kurt said. With the help of a great supporting team, he can bring the most ideal resources to each specific transaction, whether it’s an acquisition of an office complex, the sale of a multifamily property, or the construction of a mixed use project. Thus, his clients get the benefit of his own and his partners’ experience, and he and his team can be efficiently responsive to clients’ deadlines.
“I’m lucky to be surrounded by a group of partners and other professionals who are not only extremely capable but also unselfish with their time and talents,” Kurt said.
This teamwork approach hasn’t gone unnoticed by clients. For the Lionstone Group, a real estate development company Kurt has counseled since its initial formation, it is a key aspect of the long and successful relationship.
“Kurt puts the interest of the client foremost when determining the working team for any transaction,” said Dan Dubrowski, a principal of Lionstone. “His ability to efficiently and seamlessly draw on resources in different offices, in areas of different expertise and from different levels of experience is extraordinary.”

Kurt’s experience managing teams of attorneys has also led him to a new role within the firm. He was recently named managing partner of the firm’s Houston office, a position that gives him oversight of the branch’s 60 attorneys and a host of administrative issues — all while still working hands-on with his clients.
Balancing all of those responsibilities requires a capable leader who can marshal an exceptional team at a moment’s notice. Fortunately for his clients, that’s just what Kurt Nondorf does best.
