The Texas Board of Legal Specialization recognizes four (4) subcategories of Real Estate Law including:
TBLS defines the term "commercial real estate law" to include providing legal "advice and services in connection with the acquisition, ownership, leasing, financing, use, transfer and disposition of real property other than residential, farm, ranch, or oil, gas and mineral property."
The program for Commercial Real Estate Law was launched in 1983. At last count, more than 400 attorneys are Board Certified in Commercial Real Estate Law.
To become board certified in commercial real estate law, the attorney must devote a minimum of 30% of his or her total time practicing Texas real estate law during each year of the 3 years immediately preceding application.
In addition, for "Commercial Real Estate Law" at least twenty percent (20%) of the attorney's total time must have been devoted to the practice of Texas commercial real estate law during each year of the 3 years immediately preceding application.
Although not all qualified commercial real estate law attorneys are board certified, attorneys who have earned their status as a certified specialist have taken the extra step of submitting to evaluation.
