Private Real Estate Funds

Our attorneys have years of experience assisting real estate developers and other real estate investors as they execute differentiated real estate investment strategies in private real estate funds, special purpose investment vehicles, joint-venture structures, and single asset syndications. We strive to make the process to raise a real estate fund simple with an end-to-end startup solution that is attractive to first time fund sponsors and experienced fund sponsors, alike.

Our team has serviced real estate developers executing a wide variety of strategies, including: ground-up development, single and multi-family, residential and commercial, hospitality and retail, mixed-use, buy-and-hold, fix-and-flip, value-add, and tax-incentivized structures.

Commitment Structures for Capital When You Need It

For our clients that raise private real estate funds, they can enjoy the benefit of having acquisition and development capital on demand by raising capital in a commitment structure (with capital calls based on an agreed notice period).

This can provide a competitive advantage in bidding on properties and executing investment transactions.
