McConnell has been selected as president of the firm.  “There is something altruistic in every lawyer’s initial decision to practice law—we want to advance social causes or protect the rights of the under-represented members of our society.  Parr Brown’s unique governance and compensation structure represents a deliberate effort to preserve those core motivations in the context of a large commercial enterprise serving a wide variety of clients with complex legal needs.  Our approach is necessarily client focused, collaborative, and efficient, but it is also individualized and personal.  I am honored to work with and among such a highly qualified and productive group of lawyers and staff and to serve as the firm’s president,” McConnell said.

Robert McConnell is a member of the firm’s transaction and real estate practice groups and has substantial experience in commercial financing transactions representing lenders, borrowers and developers.  Mr. McConnell represents clients undertaking a wide variety of commercial and residential real estate development activities, including residential, retail and office condominium developments, low-income housing projects utilizing tax credit financing, subdivision and mixed-use community development and securing land use entitlements for Transportation Oriented Developments.  He also has experience reviewing and evaluating impact fee studies in relation to state statutory requirements and assisting clients in connection with the negotiation of impact fee reductions, both due to flaws in impact fee study methodology and in connection with developer installation of over-sized public facilities, construction of system facilities, etc.  Mr. McConnell has also negotiated reimbursement agreements for clients that are funded by future impact fee collections.  His clients routinely seek his assistance with acquisition, financing, entitlement, development, construction and the ultimate sale or lease of their respective development projects.
