Real estate investors and developers are facing a period of profound change. New investment capital is entering the marketplace; rapidly advancing technology is altering the way owners and investors do business; and compliance requirements continue to rise. 

Kaplan Voelker Cunningham & Frank understands the ever-changing playing field and assists real estate investment and development clients in meeting their unique challenges with a nimble, cross-functional team that effectively manages risk and helps maximize investment returns. 

Our lawyers are relied upon by a wide spectrum of real estate clients, from developers and investors, owners, lenders, landlords and tenants to property managers, brokers, contractors, construction managers, and institutional clients such as real estate investment trusts (REITs), insurance companies, investment managers, and other financial services entities. 

KVCF has a national reputation for guiding clients through a range of real estate-related financings and providing skilled assistance throughout the entire development and investment lifecycle. We handle strategic deal, entity and investment structuring and planning, including the formation of joint ventures and the structuring and ongoing management of REITs. Our REIT work also includes representing issuers and leading regional, national, and international investment banks in initial and follow-on public offerings. 

For investors looking to pool resources, we are actively engaged in all facets of real estate syndications, such as tenant-in-common, Delaware statutory trusts, and real estate funds, among others. We have represented borrowers in all facets and types of real estate and asset-backed financing, including representing borrowers in Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, commercial mortgage-backed security, life insurance and construction loan transactions. 

Our attorneys have negotiated numerous, large real estate transactions, often involving significant incoming-producing investment properties, including multifamily, assisted-living, office, hotel, retail and student housing projects. Those projects often include complex financing arrangements involving leasebacks and commercial mortgage-backed securities.

The KVCF team is often called upon from the beginning of a development project, negotiating the purchase, sale and financing of developed and undeveloped real property. Our experience also includes representing multifamily property developers, healthcare entities and nonprofits in lease negotiations, construction financing, Federal Housing Authority loans, commercial loans, ground leases, and purchase and sale transactions.
