The real estate industry is driven by constant changes in capital markets, finance opportunities, new tax incentives, business demand, demographics and entirely novel technology-driven industries.
Our clients are looking for counsel that can identify trends and tap resources to multiply their opportunities.
Whatever the project, we are constantly thinking about what’s next for our clients. Which means a focus on sustainability, transforming communities and leveraging incentives to get shovels in the ground. Real people, real knowledge, creating real partnerships and opportunities.
We work with the full range of participants in the market and with every class of asset, for example:
We work with every kind of affordable housing—from communities designed for the elderly, to those needing supportive services and housing for veterans. And we use every type of financing resource from HUD, including tax-exempt bonds and tax credits.
We work with corporate on their real estate strategies addressing changing needs, especially in a down market when companies are consolidating space, whether they own or lease. By the same token, institutional owners and investors need to satisfy financial growth demands. Since real estate is one of any company’s biggest expenses, paying attention to opportunities pays off.

Colleges and universities are a sweet spot in our practice. We can help you establish and maintain a solid governance structure and tap into available public and private financing for new infrastructure projects—all in accordance with exempt status requirements.
We help manufacturing companies find and build their large, often-specialized facilities. We also connect owners with developers looking to repurpose old industrial sites for contemporary public and commercial use.
We assist developers and investors who build housing or install solar power for various branches of the U.S. military.
We have helped nonprofit and for-profit arts organizations to expand their facilities or relocate. We bring the added benefits of tax credit financing experience, nonprofit knowledge and an Arts and Cultural Institutions team that knows arts-related issues inside and out.
We work with some of the world’s biggest franchises and brands on their headquarters and retail spaces—whether negotiating leases or constructing entirely new buildings.
