Parmley Legal PLLC

Bruce E. Parmley

If you believe those lawyer-rating publications, then Bruce Parmley must be very good at what he does. Maybe this is because of his many years of experience, maybe because of his style with transactions, maybe because of his client service, or maybe because of his personality (he’s fun to work with).

Whatever the reasons, Bruce is widely recognized as a leading go-to practitioner representing owners of, and investors in, substantial estate projects.

National & International Focus on Luxury Hotels & Resorts

Bruce serves as principal and special real estate counsel to sophisticated owner, investor and operator clients. He regularly negotiates and drafts legal agreements for international luxury hotel projects. Bruce truly enjoys what he does.
