Kate Michalski

Kate Michalski is an associate in Nixon Peabody’ s Community Development Finance group. Kate represents clients in structuring complex real estate transactions that utilize tax credits for projects nationwide.

What do you focus on?

I focus my practice on transactions that include complex tax credit financing. I work with clients including partnerships, corporations, real estate investment trusts, taxable REIT subsidiaries, and limited liability companies to prepare tax memoranda in anticipation of these transactions. My practice also includes drafting and reviewing analyses for client tax structure and anticipated liability to plan prospective sales or acquisitions of real estate and entities owning large amounts of real estate for clients. I am active in the industry and regularly research and prepare articles for publication regarding updates in tax law across all jurisdictions, including federal, state, and local.

What do you see on the horizon?

I anticipate that the increase in real estate acquisitions and movement of employees to less-populated real estate markets given ever-changing work arrangements will give rise to more opportunities for expansion into new markets and other real estate growth. Monitoring developments in these real estate markets will be crucial in assisting clients in the years ahead.
