Weede Joins MMM’s Real Estate & Hospitality Practices


Atlanta (August 16, 2021) – Dan Weede, who has more than 25 years experience in commercial real estate law, has joined Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP as a partner.

“There was really only one firm I would consider going to – and that’s MMM,” said Weede, who was previously with Carlton Fields. “MMM’s Commercial Real Estate Practice is highly-ranked nationally and its hospitality practice is one of the best, if not the best, for hotel owners and developers in the country. I know and trust a lot of people at MMM, which means better practice integration and the ability to hit the ground running. Plus, I appreciate the firm’s comradery, atmosphere and culture.”

Weede has experience in all real estate sectors including industrial, mixed-use and multifamily development, lending, retail and other sectors. In recent years he focused on representing owners, developers, lenders and managers in the hospitality industry and was a co-founder and former president of the Atlanta Hospitality Alliance, a professional development and networking group.

 “Adding Dan Weede as a partner will help us continue to grow our market-leading Real Estate and Hospitality Practices,” said MMM Managing Partner Simon Malko. “His deep experience in all real estate sectors will complement our team’s depth in both the Atlanta and D.C. offices. We are also open to further additions as we move forward.”

Alex Hegner, also previously with Carlton Fields, is joining MMM with Weede. Hegner, who earned both JD and MBA degrees, will be an associate. Weede praises him for his communication skills and ability to understand business from the clients’ perspectives.

“I hope that many of my clients will join me at MMM. I’m also looking forward to serving the clients who are already there,” Weede concludes.

Monday, August 16 is Weede and Hegner’s first day.
