Christopher R. Froeb

Chris Froeb focuses his practice on representing owners, developers and investors in all aspects of commercial real estate transactions, including acquisitions, sales, financings, joint venture formation and development.

What do you focus on?

Real estate transactions

When my clients’ commercial real estate or real estate investments change hands, I draft and negotiate purchase and sale agreements, leases, joint venture and equity documents and loan documents. I also manage and perform the due diligence and other site acquisition services needed to ensure my clients are protected and transactions close efficiently.

Multifamily housing

Over the last few years we’ve seen a significant spike in multifamily housing development. Over that time, I’ve represented developers of these market-rate and affordable multifamily housing projects as well as institutional investors in multifamily housing assets.

Senior housing and care

The senior housing industry has also experienced consistent growth over the last few years. I’ve assisted institutional investors with their investments in assisted living and skilled nursing properties and portfolios. I’ve also represented privately held and publicly traded developers and owners in acquiring, selling, master leasing and financing assisted living and skilled nursing developments.

Restructuring and workouts

My restructuring and workout experience has included representing institutional lenders in workouts of commercial and securitized loans, distressed property sales, foreclosures and deed-in-lieu transactions.

What do you see on the horizon?

I’m following rent statistics, interest rates and changing financing structures and their effect on the multifamily and senior housing markets and the greater commercial real estate market.
