Office Managing Partner of the firm’s New York City office, Joseph Lynch represents for-profit and nonprofit developers and owners in complex real estate transactions.
My practice focuses on representing clients in real estate transactions involving federal, state or local assistance and/or financing. On a state and federal level, this includes tax exempt bonds; low-income housing tax credits; FHA, SONYMA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac financing; and federal rental subsidy programs. On a local level, I also focus on legislative and agency approvals, including real property tax exemptions.
As Office Managing Partner, I am focused on leading the New York City office in this period of growth and strengthening. Nixon Peabody has committed to an expansion of the corporate and private equity practice in New York City and I look forward to using the collective intelligence of our office to achieve this and other goals.
Federal funding is becoming harder to access, sending a ripple effect down to the state and local level. My role is to guide our clients through these increasingly complicated issues.
