From marquee office towers to modern residential communities, the neighborhoods of the 21st century are being built and maintained by the clients of our REITs practice.

At Stroock, our work covers the breadth of the publicly traded, public non-traded and private REITs industries.

Drawing on our Wall Street pedigree, we represent a substantial percentage of the nation’s publicly traded REITs, providing the corporate, securities, real estate, tax and ERISA advice that our institutional clients need and expect. On the capital markets front, we help publicly traded REITs obtain unsecured corporate-level debt, secured debt, construction financing, JV equity and public equity. We also provide corporate governance advice, handle ongoing filings with the SEC and assist in all manner of M&A and real estate transactions.

Meanwhile, our robust non-traded REITs practice focuses on helping institutional real estate asset managers gain access to retail investors. Stroock attorneys have advised on the raising of billions of dollars in non-traded REIT equity capital, and, through constant engagement with stakeholders, we have a front-row view of the industry’s unique regulatory environment. We have also built a long familiarity with the resources needed to run a non-traded REIT, along with how to bring a deal to market efficiently, how to navigate a competitive landscape and how to surmount regulatory pitfalls. Accordingly, we guide sponsors through every aspect of their non-traded REIT endeavors.

Stroock has also structured some of the largest and most complex private REITs in the country — including perhaps the single largest private REIT in history. At any given time, our attorneys are likely to be handling the corporate, securities and regulatory matters for dozens of private REITs of all sizes, ranging up to tens of billions of dollars in net asset value.
