Tracy Buck is a member of Offit Kurman's Commercial Litigation practice group. As a pragmatic and experienced litigator, she believes in a global approach to resolving legal disputes. Her practice focuses on commercial litigation with a particular emphasis on real estate disputes, commercial leasing, condemnation proceedings, and protecting creditors’ rights. Ms. Buck's global approach to the practice of law is informed by the fact that she represents a wide variety of clients on all different sides of a dispute, from defending real estate developers, protecting homeowners’ rights, and representing both landlords and tenants in lease disputes. This enables Ms. Buck to zealously represent her clients by understanding interests of the other parties to a legal dispute, and ultimately providing her with the tools to smoothly navigate her clients to the most optimal resolution.
Ms. Buck has a wealth of practical litigation experience that allows her to advocate for her clients if they find themselves in a lawsuit. Her experience extends throughout the life-span of a lawsuit and includes the drafting of complaints, managing discovery and litigating discovery disputes, taking and defending depositions, and successfully briefing and arguing dispositive motions before the Court. In additional to her trial court practice, she has extensive appellate experience having briefed and argued cases before the Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia and Maryland.
In recent years, Ms. Buck has begun to expand the areas of her practice into newly emerging industries; in particular, sports gambling. She serves as a trusted adviser to many industry stakeholders and operators, and regularly provides regulatory guidance to her clients on a diverse set of issues, from licensing to operations. Ms. Buck continuously monitors the industry and the legal developments that are taking place both nationally and globally.
When she is not representing her clients, Ms. Buck remains active in the legal community. She is a former member of the Rules Committee for Foreclosure cases in the District of Columbia Superior Court and has been invited by the Maryland Court of Appeals to comment on amendments to that state’s Court Rules as well. She is an active member of the District of Columbia Bar Association, and a member of the Barristers. Outside of work, Ms. Buck channels her passion into cooking, running, and most importantly, her family.
