As the real estate and capital markets expand in the Mid-Atlantic Region, Elliott Greenleaf is at the forefront of representing lenders, borrowers, investors, developers, lessors, lessees, institutions, and entrepreneurs providing and accessing sources of new financing.

With the rapidly developing variety of structures and financing sources now in the market, such as partnerships, joint ventures, hedges, derivatives, mezzanine loans, commercial paper conduits, swaps, caps, synthetic leases and leveraged leases or buyouts, the traditional real estate industry is expanding into newly charted areas. The firm knows this market and how to effectively utilize these products. We are well positioned to guide our clients through the business considerations, regulatory constraints and tax implications of the structures that best meet their needs.

Our clients include real estate investment trusts, institutional investors, pension funds, opportunity funds, labor unions, commercial banks, investment banks, and real estate owners, developers and managers. Because we negotiate and structure transactions for clients on differing sides, and understand how they work from the inside, we can add substantial value to transactions.

Our real estate group includes experts in every aspect of real estate investment, development, tax and finance. The firm’s experience, innovation and market knowledge provide our clients with confidence that we can find a way to structure virtually any deal creatively and cost efficiently.
