Joint Ventures/Equity Finance

Investors and sponsors look to the in-depth knowledge of the real estate attorneys at Arnold & Porter for equity financing transactions. We provide creative solutions and practical and market-based advice in structuring deals, performing due diligence, negotiating, and drafting documentation.

We draw on several core strengths in our firm in the areas of real estate, corporate, regulatory, environmental, and tax to form a seamless team on joint venture formation and equity finance transactions. Our teams effectively and efficiently address real estate, environmental, tax and regulatory issues that arise in those transactions for both US and non-US companies and investors. We approach a joint venture as part of the larger real estate transaction to ensure that the JV negotiations and documentation mesh with the acquisition, development, debt financing, and service agreements.

We represent both developer/operating partners and investor partners. Our practice touches on real property throughout the United States and in all industry sectors.
