For nearly thirty years, Terry R. Landry has represented real estate investors, lenders, developers, managers, and financial institutions in all aspects of commercial real estate transactions. Terry started his legal career at what are now two of the largest law firms in the U.S., Locke Lord, LLP and Squire Patton Boggs, and that Big Law experience helped him acquire the top-notch training and legal discipline that has served his clients well for the last three decades. He also has a unique background, starting his career as a Certified Public Accountant with the audit department of KPMG Peat Marwick in Dallas before becoming a lawyer. Terry has been honored for his long list of notable achievements in real estate law with his inclusion in Best Lawyers in America® for 2023 and 2024.
Today, Terry’s clients range from small and mid-size businesses to Fortune 500 companies. He represents them in a full spectrum of transactions from small retail tenant leasing ($2,500/month rent) to complex mixed-use development and financing ($150 million-plus). He represents buyers, sellers and developers of office buildings, multi-family housing, seniors’ housing, retail space, industrial properties and raw landowners in every phase of the commercial real estate cycle: acquisition, development, leasing, financing, entity formation and disposition. He co-founded WLBO in 2023 after a 21-year stint with another Dallas law firm where he was a named partner.
Terry is a 1993 graduate of Texas Tech School of Law, where he was a member of the board of editors of the Texas Tech Law Review and the Order of the Coif. He also graduated from Texas Tech University where he received his B.B.A. in accounting.
Terry is admitted to the State Bar of Texas, Real Estate Section, Probate and Trust Section, and is a member of the Dallas Bar Association.
Terry is married to his wife of over 20 years, Shonne Jamison Landry, and has two canine children, Tolbert and Pappy. When not behind his desk, he enjoys spending time with friends and family at his second home “office” on the Texas Gulf Coast, where he brags about fish he never actually caught.
