Maria Claudia Fuentes
Associate

The most rewarding aspect of my practice is learning about our clients' goals for their businesses and helping them to reach those goals efficiently while also providing them with insights into any potential opportunities and risks. I am dedicated to working diligently for our clients because I know how important our work is to the continued success of their businesses.

Maria focuses her practice on commercial real estate transactions, particularly the acquisition, disposition, financing and development of commercial properties. She also represents both landlords and tenants in commercial lease negotiations.

Prior to joining Gray Reed, Maria counseled domestic and international clients on a broad range of energy-related transactions and projects.
