VLP Law Group Continues Its Growth with the Addition of Real Estate Partner David B. Franklin

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- VLP Law Group LLP is pleased to announce that David B. Franklin has joined the firm's Real Estate Practice Group as a partner based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Mr. Franklin's practice concentrates on real estate transactions and land use, primarily in California and Hawaii. He represents clients in acquiring, leasing, financing, entitling, developing, constructing, selling and exchanging real estate. Additionally, he regularly represents clients regarding general business needs, including formation, entity structure and multi-state operations.

"David brings over 40 years of real estate experience to VLP's very active group," said Byron Rodriquez, Chair of the firm's Affordable Housing & Community Development Practice Group. "We're especially looking forward to adding his California and Hawaii land use experience, which will complement our existing developer-focused practices in those states."
