Harris and McCracken have negotiated, documented and overseen numerous multi-million dollar hotel and restaurant real-estate transactions across the United States.

They have appeared before local governing bodies on behalf of clients to address land use matters.

McCracken recently negotiated and documented the acquisition of a 407-room 4-star flagged property, comprising significantly complex ground lease, air space, and fee parcels, along with cross-easement agreements, condemnation issues and complex title and survey issues.

Harris was responsible for the subdivision and subsequent parcel sales of 2,000 acres of bare land, including drafting CC&Rs and Property Maintenance Agreements for the new owners association.
