Affordable Housing Financing

Guiding Sophisticated Buyers in Evaluating Housing Issues

​Starting in the early 1980s, we've represented institutional investors in negotiating the structure, terms, and purchase of housing bond issues across the United States. In 1996 we were appointed as rental development bond counsel for the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency. We've served as the agency's bond counsel ever since ― providing representation in all of its rental development bond offerings.
