Multifamily

Our full-service multifamily housing team represents owners and developers, general and specialized investors and financial institutions across all phases of the project lifecycle. Our attorneys have closed billions of dollars of transactions in over 40 states, including low-income, historic rehabilitation and enterprise zone tax credit transactions, as well as public-private partnership agreements for student and manufactured housing projects.
