Saeed Tellawi is a Texas attorney representing the owners of domestic and international privately-held and family-owned businesses.
His practice focuses on complex transactions & strategic advice related to the entrepreneurial pursuit, including business start-up and partnerships; acquisition and disposition of businesses & commercial real estate; asset protection; succession planning; and a full suite of due diligence services for buyers and lenders seeking to make informed decisions before signing on the dotted line.
Starting his first company at the age of 18 and being continuously self-employed since then has helped Saeed develop a practical approach to both law and business.
Saeed was recently named Top Lawyer by both Houstonia Magazine and H Texas Magazine in 2016 and 2017, nominations earned from his peers in the legal industry. In 2015, Amaral Tellawi Law was a finalist in the running for Texas Family Business of the Year by Baylor University’s Institute for Family Business.
Saeed moved to the United States in the late ‘80’s and grew up in Alief, Texas. He attended Houston Baptist University where he was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, on a full scholarship, in part from the Houston Endowment’s Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Scholars Program.
Impressed by the Jones legacy, and others who helped him along the way, Saeed aims to give back to the Houston community by providing pro bono legal services to entrepreneurs with well-developed business ideas who lack the means or education to bring their dreams to fruition. Saeed is currently a mentor at the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Houston.
Saeed obtained his Texas real estate license in 2005 and became a broker in 2006, representing buyers and tenants of commercial real estate and managing investment properties for his clients.
In 2007, Saeed became a licensed attorney. His initial practice involved representing small business owners in contract disputes. Since then, his practice shifted and he has made significant contributions in business and real estate transactions, with involvement in a vast array of start-ups, purchases, and dispositions for local, state-wide, and international clients.
Drawing on his own experiences and those of the clients he’s assisted, Saeed Tellawi helps clients achieve the freedom of self-employment.
