Matthew Carrigg is a partner in Nixon Peabody’s Affordable Housing and Real Estate group. Matthew focuses his practice on various commercial and private real estate transactions. He represents borrowers and lenders, commercial real estate developers, and private companies.
I focus my practice on all aspects of commercial real estate matters. I have assisted lenders, borrowers, and business clients in connection with commercial real estate transactions. I have experience in drafting buy-sell agreements, and reviewing and negotiating commercial leases, commercial real estate titles, surveys, and traditional and special-purpose entity formations.
I have substantial experience with complex financings of affordable housing developments that include tax-exempt bonds, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, and often other federal, state, and local government subsidies. I regularly represent purchasers, developers, and borrowers on developments with multiple layers of financing.
I have substantial experience in all facets of acquisition, disposition, leasing, and mergers and acquisitions. I regularly assemble and lead real estate teams to undertake sophisticated due diligence projects.
On real property tax matters, I advise various taxpayers and not-for-profits on real estate tax appeals and other real property tax matters, including payments in lieu of tax (PILOT) agreements for commercial and industrial property owners, and real estate tax exemptions and tax abatements for not-for-profits and housing companies, including the assessment of affordable housing projects under Real Property Tax Law 581-a.
Despite persistent economic uncertainty, I have seen growth in the commercial lending markets, and I expect that trend to continue.
