“Incredibly intelligent with the legal needs, but is also incredibly business-oriented”
Chambers USA


Ronald (Ronny) M. Shoss is a partner in Mayer Brown’s Real Estate practice. He has a widely diversified practice representing institutional owners of real estate throughout the United States and has established a national office and industrial leasing practice. Representative clients include KBS Realty Advisors and other large institutional investors and state pension funds. 

In Chambers USA, clients note that Ronny is “incredibly intelligent with the legal needs, but is also incredibly business-oriented – he takes a step back and asks, ’How does this impact us, does this increase risk or can we move forward and get the deal done?’ That trait is a rarity and extremely useful to us.” Additionally, clients say “He works very hard and has the most up-to-date knowledge of the market and the provisions that are acceptable in the marketplace." He is also "singled out by sources as 'intuitive, always available' and for 'really caring about the result he achieves for the client.'" He has also been listed in The Best Lawyers in America and has been named a "Texas Super Lawyer.” Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 1993, Ronny spent three years with another large, international firm in Houston.
