Bill Morton joined Pless Law Firm in 2022 in the firm’s Austin office, bringing with him over fifteen years of legal experience.

Bill has worked in both large, multi-discipline law firms and small boutique firms focused solely on commercial real estate. His experience includes the acquisition and disposition of raw land and developed properties, due diligence matters, drafting of declarations and other restrictive covenants, construction contracts, and retail and office leasing. He has represented developers in acquisition through lease-up stages (including large projects such as a 400+ acre development containing more than 3.9 million sqft of retail, dining, entertainment, and hotel use), as well as clients in acquisition and redevelopment of existing office and retail sites.

Although his focus for the past decade has largely been in the representation of real estate developers, the experience he acquired while representing national retail tenants early in his career has served him well in negotiating leases on behalf of his developer clients.

Bill and his wife and children reside in Austin. He enjoys golf, music, and spending time on Lake Travis.
