Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT)

Over the past decade, real estate investment trusts (REITs) have grown quickly as an investment option. REITs own and manage commercial real estate that yields a relatively stable stream of income for investors in the form of dividends derived from lease revenue. Kaplan Voekler Cunningham & Frank is at the forefront of the REIT industry and our attorneys are skilled in the tax and operational aspects of REITs.

KVCF assists with equity offerings, including initial public offerings, follow-on offerings, and other securities issues. We advise our REIT clients on day-to-day operations and help them successfully negotiate REIT rules and regulations, including IRS regulations on qualification and structuring of transactions.

KVCF’s expertise in REITs includes:

  • REIT qualifications and IRS requirements
  • REIT classifications and structures
  • REIT property management
  • REIT investor evaluation
  • REIT tax compliance and regulations
