Andrew D. Hahs was born in New London, Connecticut, April 15, 1956. He has spent his 25+ years of practice developing skills that help owners of businesses and real property succeed. He works with his clients on a wide range of issues including entity formation, employment, business, real property finance, real estate acquisition and sales, and construction claims. The last 20 years he has focused his practice on real estate issues, rental housing, and advising closely held businesses. His ability to develop personal relationships with his clients and anticipate their needs contributes to his professional success and gives his clients confidence that their interests will be protected.

Andy has considerable experience representing buyers, sellers, lenders and developers of real property. He frequently assists in the structuring of purchases and sales, tax deferred exchanges, real estate financing, complex commercial leases and ownership entities such as limited liability companies and corporations. He has also represented a number of major developers in such diverse areas as hotels, subdivisions, condominiums and assisted living facilities.

Since 1992 Andy has become one of the leading authorities on Oregon’s landlord-tenant law. He represents a large share of the residential property management companies in the tri-county area as well as numerous commercial landlords and tenants. In 1993 Andy helped establish the Metro Multifamily Housing Association (whose membership owns or manages in excess of 120,000 multifamily units), has served on its board of directors for many years and was the 2005 President. He is a frequent speaker at seminars on landlord-tenant law and fair housing.
