Pamela Swanson - Community Development Finance - Nixon Peabody LLP

Pamela Swanson

Pamela Swanson is an associate in our Community Development Finance group. She focuses her practice on transactions involving low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs) and renewable energy tax credits, and represents investors and syndicators in leveraging these tax credits to finance housing and community development nationwide.

What do you focus on?

I work with equity investors, syndicators and lenders to structure transactions that qualify for federal LIHTCs and other tax benefits, involving multiple layers of public and private financing, including tax-exempt bonds. I conduct necessary due diligence, identifying key issues in the early stages of the deal structuring process, and draft equity transaction documents that are crucial for achieving our client’s business goals.

What do you see on the horizon?

With recent legislation aiming to improve the low-income housing tax credit and provide additional resources, including expanding and increasing Opportunity Zones, I anticipate increased activity in the LIHTC industry. I look forward to helping our clients navigate these changes and take advantage of new opportunities.
