Guiding innocent passengers down some of the world’s most thrilling whitewater seems like an improbable training ground for a lawyer. For Mike Kvarme, it encapsulated many of the skill sets required of an attorney.

“Navigating a treacherous stretch of river requires analysis of the obstacles and risk, proper planning and examining contingencies, and ultimately impeccable execution,”Mike notes. The same skills required in the more sedate and intellectually demanding practice of law.

Mike concentrates on a transactionally based real estate, finance, and business planning practice. His clients range from publicly traded companies to closely held businesses and individuals. Mike’s skill and success have been confirmed by clients and peers in recognitions as one of the Top 25 Sacramento Super Lawyers  (Real Estate and Business Counseling), Best Lawyer (Real Estate) and Martindale-Hubbell Top Rated Lawyer (Land Use and Zoning). He has been chosen frequently to write and lecture for the California Continuing Education of the Bar and other organizations.

Mike has been privileged to work on a number of significant projects in his career: lead counsel for the redevelopment of McClellan Air Force Base into on of the most successful military based conversions in the country.

  • Billions of dollars in financing projects for lenders and borrowers.
  • Development of Esquire Plaza, Hyatt Regency Sacramento, Rotunda Building (Sacramento), Residence Inn and Condominiums (Sacramento), CalSTRS office building and more.
  • Master planned developments, planning unit developments, mixed use projects and residential communities.
