When clients work with Charlie Russell, they appreciate that he looks beyond the transaction at hand and understands the bigger picture for their business, as well as the community. Charlie feels great pride when a new building emerges from the ground in north central West Virginia, and he can say “I helped with that!” As a business lawyer, Charlie works side by side with property developers, banks, business owners, and community leaders to make things happen. Because of this, his legal practice has a broad scope, which makes him extremely valuable to clients. He is skilled in drafting and negotiating commercial property leases, documenting and structuring commercial and residential real estate transactions, protecting creditor rights in foreclosures and collections, and assisting clients to buy and sell assets.
