    Ritz-Carlton® Resort (Jamaica)

    Over its long history, the company’s work has touched nearly every segment of the real estate market in various roles including ownership, project management, property and asset management, planning and brokerage. Today, we focus primarily on general commercial, health care, education and other governmental projects, hospitality and multi-family residential, but are proud that our team can execute any type of complex real estate assignment.

    St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital (Middle Tennessee)

    We began our business developing, leasing and managing projects for our own account, so we understand the benefits a well-conceived and executed real estate strategy can provide. We also recognize the multitude of risks that come with any real estate project. By bringing this perspective to every project, clients of LawlerWood benefit from the lessons we have learned across 40 years of experience and two-billion dollars in successful development and management projects.
