Over the past 35 years, Seattle attorney Dan Henke has advised businesses and their principals in a wide variety of industries on matters including business formation, acquisition, and sale; shareholder and partner relations; capitalization and financing; contracts; real estate purchases, sales, and leasing; business financing; dispute resolution; environmental law; and employment law.

Dan has represented family businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and transnational corporations. Today, Dan’s primary areas of focus are on real estate transactions and leasing, business acquisitions and sales, and general business counsel to individuals and businesses.


Regardless of the size, all businesses are run by real people with important goals and objectives. As a Seattle real estate and business attorney, I enjoy helping companies of all sizes – from family-owned businesses to large corporations. My greatest professional satisfaction comes from helping businesses succeed, especially given the personal friendships developed with clients over many years.

I look forward to the opportunity to learn about your business.

Professional Experience

Spending Free Time

When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me on a river, or a lake, or the ocean (or a puddle if I think there might be a fish in it), fly rod in hand, enjoying in one form or another, a fishing misadventure. I’ve been known to fly half way around the world, catch a fish, and let it go.
