Home » Practice Areas » Real Estate Finance & Transactions

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 Voekler 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 and smooth the path for transactions. 

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, investment, and management lifecycle.  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.  

We handle 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. Additionally, for investors looking to pool resources, we are actively engaged in all facets of real estate syndications, such as tenants-in-common, Delaware statutory trusts, and real estate funds, among others. 

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.

We have extensive experience in representing multifamily property developers, public and private companies, healthcare entities and nonprofits in lease negotiations, construction financing, Federal Housing Authority loans, commercial loans, and ground leases.

KVCF’s clients rely upon us for our team’s decades of combined experience, proven results, and our ability to innovate. We offer real estate transactional clients something many large law firms cannot: A highly agile expert team with the ability to pivot from smaller regional deals to the largest and most-complex national deals.
