Zachary Rozen is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Community Development Finance group. He works with a wide array of investors, syndicators and developers in housing tax credit and new markets tax credit transactions. He also represents U.S. and non-U.S. companies in export compliance and sanctions matters in cross-border transactions and regulatory disputes.
I represent investors and developers in the acquisition, financing and syndication of real estate transactions that utilize federal low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC). I focus on running transactions as efficiently as possible while managing the risks and concerns that are unique to each client. Additionally, I enjoy working with clients to resolve issues that arise throughout the tax credit compliance period.
I represent investors, lenders and developers in complex, multi-tiered transactions that utilize federal new markets tax credits. My clients include leverage lenders, institutional investors, community development entities and project sponsors.
Based on my experience working in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, I provide clients with insight into legislative developments and assist with industry advocacy.
I leverage my past Intelligence Community and foreign policy experience to represent U.S. and non-U.S. companies in export compliance and sanctions-related regulatory matters. I work on a variety of cross-border transactions and mergers and acquisitions, including representing clients in national security reviews before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). I also represent clients in regulatory matters concerning the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) and the U.S. Department of State’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). My OFAC experience covers all U.S.-sanctioned regimes, including the rapidly changing economic sanction restrictions concerning Russia, Crimea, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba, and Sudan.
The private and public sectors will continue to collaborate and seek mutually beneficial ways to increase investment in tax credit-finance. I look forward to helping our clients navigate the recent congressional tax reform and adapting their respective business practices.
