Growing up, Danette Davis always knew she wanted to be a lawyer, preferably in the business and real estate sector. That’s because she grew up assisting her parents with the family business, Logan Agri-Service Inc. located in Griggsville, Illinois, that supplied crop inputs serving agricultural customers throughout the Midwest.
“I always thought being a business lawyer would be neat since I was always involved in the family business in some way or another,” Davis said.
She went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in finance from Truman State University and attended law school at Saint Louis University, graduating in 2007.
“One thing I really like about real estate law, at least typically, is that everyone is usually really happy at the end,” she said.
Davis’ love of real estate and business law brought her to Dentons in 2010, where she is currently a partner and a member of firm’s real estate practice. In the role, she focuses on complex real estate issues, including development and construction, asset-based lending and commercial leasing.
