Sayles, managing partner of Bradley’s Dallas office. “David is well known in the Texas legal community for broad real estate and financial services practice, and his skills will help us better meet the expectations of our clients.”
Bradley Chairman and Managing Partner Jonathan Skeeters added, “The addition of David to our Dallas office reflects the firm’s commitment to expanding the transactional services we offer to clients in Texas and beyond, even in a challenging economy. David’s deep skill set, broad experience and client base of lenders, developers and operators will allow the firm to expand our capabilities in Texas while we continue to successfully meet our client’s needs across the country.”
Mr. Pratt brings a pragmatic business-oriented approach to counseling clients based on his more than 25 years as a general business, banking, and commercial real estate law attorney.

Bradley covers all of these bases and I am thrilled to join the firm,” Pratt said.
