I previously served as vice president and assistant counsel for Home Properties, a publicly traded real estate investment trust. In this role, I represented the company in all of its purchase, sale, and financing transactions. This included structuring transactions, drafting and negotiating contracts, negotiating loan documents, and closing transactions. I also gained extensive experience with tax-deferred transactions, including 1031 exchanges and contributions to UPREITS. I also prepared residential leases and addenda in multiple states, researched landlord tenant laws in multiple states, and otherwise provided legal assistance to property management.
