Representative Matters

  • Represented a South Florida real estate developer and a South Florida private equity family office in connection with their joint venture acquisition of a national retailer’s corporate headquarters for more than $100 million.

Our finance team negotiated private bridge financing for the acquisition that was secured, in part, by equity, and assisted on leveraging quantity-limited tax stabilization incentives available to qualified developers in Rhode Island.

  • Represented a South Florida real estate investment group in connection with a complex sale-leaseback transaction of a commercial real estate property portfolio consisting of 34 properties occupied by a national retail chain. The firm’s work required collaboration across its Commercial Real Estate, Banking & Finance and Corporate & Business Transactions Practice Groups and involved, among other things, properties across 15 states, 10 buyers, 28 1031 exchanges, 1 reverse 1031 exchange and work with 2 national lenders.
