Frank Z. Ruttenberg

Frank Ruttenberg studied business finance and tax law before entering the practice of commercial and real estate law in San Antonio 25 years ago. This pragmatic combination of disciplines forms the foundation for an extensive representation of businesses in the energy, construction, hospitality, sports and entertainment industries.

In general commercial law, Frank assists businesses with day-to-day operating needs, negotiating and drafting business contracts, and the formation of business entities, including limited partnerships, limited liability companies, general partnerships, registered limited liability partnerships and corporations. He prepares intra-owner agreements for commercial entities of all types and the documentation of private offerings in connection with the formation of investment capital.

Frank's real estate practice includes negotiating and preparing documents relating to the financing, lease, sale, purchase and operation of income producing properties; the finance, acquisition, development and day-to-day operations for apartment and commercial-use complexes; landlord/tenant relations; commercial transactions with governmental agencies; and the redevelopment and preservation of historic structures.

Increasingly, Frank is involved in assisting development clients with the purchase, sale or lease of groundwater and surface water rights, the development of diversion facilities, and other water development and water supply agreements.
