Chase L. Cantrell

Chase L. Cantrell is a Detroit-based transactional attorney who has built his career helping companies of all sizes (from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies) in matters related to real estate and corporate law.  He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan in 2005, concentrating in political science and French.  A Wolverine through and through, he graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 2008.

Above all things, however, Chase is a die-hard Detroiter.  With parents who worked in retail and in banking, he learned at an early age the importance of fostering businesses that serve Detroit residents.  Always having taken that lesson to heart, in March 2016, he decided to step away from the practice of law to more directly pursue his passion for real estate development and community service through the founding of Building Community Value.
