Amanda Smith Greenberg is a commercial real estate and land use planning attorney whose clients include local and national developers, owners, investors and tenants. Amanda represents clients in sophisticated purchase, sale and development transactions, including mixed-use projects, industrial developments, large scale residential developments, office buildings, hotels, shopping centers and sports and entertainment stadiums and venues. She often advises clients on title and survey matters, entitlements issues and land use and development approvals, such as easements and rights-of-way, zoning, subdivision, development agreements and infrastructure needs.

In her commercial real estate practice, Amanda serves as Colorado and regional counsel for national retailers who acquire and develop commercial pad sites. This work includes a full spectrum of services from site identification, negotiating purchase agreements and long-term ground leases, to working with regulatory bodies to obtain permits and approvals.

She also represents both landlords and tenants in large commercial lease deals, including office, shopping center, mixed-use recreational and industrial properties.

Amanda grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado, obtained a B.A. in Government with a Certificate of concentration in Latin American Studies from Cornell University, and began her career as a legal assistant in the international trade practice group at a large Washington, D.C., law firm. During law school, Amanda was a clerk/intern for the Hon. Larry J. Naves at the Denver District Court.
