Caplan & Earnest LLC announced that Victoria “Tori” Whitelaw has joined the firm as an attorney in the firm’s Real Estate and Transactional practices. She has deep legal experience in contracts, real estate, eminent domain, and natural resources.
“We’re excited to welcome Tori to Caplan & Earnest,” said Brad Hendrick, managing member. “Her experience across a number of disciplines, including contracts, titling, regulatory affairs and litigation, will be a wonderful addition to our firm and benefit to our clients.”
Whitelaw has amassed significant experience negotiating, reviewing, and drafting contracts and real estate agreements including deeds, licenses, easements, leases, and damage releases. She is licensed to practice in Colorado, Wyoming, and Texas.
Whitelaw began her legal career assisting Fortune 500 companies with land acquisition, title review, and eminent domain litigation on multi-million and billion-dollar critical infrastructure projects.
