Leader of the real estate, development & construction industry team
Handles claims across the spectrum of real estate, development and construction
Serves as mentor in helping diverse attorneys in the legal profession
Leader of the real estate, development & construction industry team at Husch Blackwell in St. Louis, Caroline Hermeling is able to cut to the core of matters and resolve conflicts efficiently on behalf of clients. As a seasoned litigator, she knows the judges in the St. Louis region and has a good working knowledge of the experts who often are involved in these cases.
She handles claims across the spectrum of real estate, development and construction, including sales and commercial leases, eminent domain, land use, title issues and foreclosures. As lead counsel in dozens of commercial lending litigation matters, Hermeling also represents lenders in the enforcement of loan and security agreements, notes, guaranties, deeds of trust and related documents. Frequently these representations involve defending lender liability claims and business-related torts to favorable conclusions.
Hermeling takes seriously her role as a leader at the firm, on the Diversity Council and within the community. She particularly embraces the role of mentor in helping diverse attorneys in the legal profession.
These are some of the reasons that we named Hermeling to our Chicago & Midwest grouping of Lawyers in Real Estate. These are real estate attorneys who have distinguished themselves in both their practice and the larger community.
