Megan Denha has joined Encore Real Estate Investment Services as General Counsel for the firm. She specializes in handling a wide array of legal matters that impact the firm while ensuring all brokers properly comply with state laws, as business is being transacted in over forty states.
Megan was the first student to participate in Oakland University’s 3+1 partnership with Wayne State Law school. She completed her undergraduate degree in just two years, graduating from Oakland University Magna Cum Laude. Megan was immediately accepted to Wayne State Law School obtaining the Provost Scholarship for academic achievement.
At Wayne Law, Megan was involved in courses pertaining to business transactions, negotiations, developing commercial real estate, and analyzing urban development. Moreover, she participated in the transactional law competition to strengthen both her analytical and contract drafting skills. She graduated from law school in two and half years with honors and passed the Michigan Bar Exam upon graduation.
During law school Megan interned with a Michigan based law firm in their eminent domain division. Her job focused on eminent domain necessary for modern infrastructure. She specifically worked with senior level attorneys on the Gordie Howe International Bridge project.
Before joining Encore Real Estate Investment Services, Megan was employed at a Michigan based business law and litigation firm which services national corporations. Her practice involved construction, architectural, and engineering litigation and transactional matters.

Megan is a driven practitioner who has an in-depth perspective on commercial real estate transactions. Her legal background paired with her construction and architectural knowledge have proven invaluable when assisting clients in both commercial deals and development projects. In short, she is fully equipped to analyze every aspect of a deal – from the building’s structural integrity, due diligence, title matters, and drafting purchase agreements – she can do it all. She is motivated to preserving Encore’s brand in the commercial real estate arena and beginning this new chapter in her career.
