While REITs can provide significant tax and reporting benefits to individual, tax-exempt, and foreign investors, structuring and operating a REIT is an onerous undertaking that requires thorough understanding of a variety of tax, accounting, and regulatory requirements. 

Led by a multidisciplinary group of firm leaders who have collectively served numerous REITs throughout their careers, our team understands the challenges your company faces. In our ongoing commitment to promote client opportunity and growth, we will provide proactive insights based on our work with a deep, varied commercial real estate client base.
