Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Development and Disputes
Goldstein Hall’s LIHTC attorneys are uniquely positioned to work with you through the lifecycle of your LIHTC project. Goldstein Hall’s attorneys have worked as project counsel on hundreds of LIHTC projects from the pre-development stage through permanent loan closing.
Working with developers from the early stages of development, we understand your unique challenges. Whether dealing with governmental authorities, negotiating with your lenders, developing the necessary construction contracts or at the end of your project, enforcing your right of first refusal or litigating your right to exit an investment. The result is a holistic legal representation at every stage of the development process.
As the affordable housing crisis has grown in recent years, disputes among partners or investors of the LIHTC projects have only exacerbated it. Often in these disputes not-for-profit and for-profit developers focused on maintaining or preserving affordable housing are left vulnerable because many do not know their rights.
Our LIHTC Dispute practice group concentrates in defending not-for-profit and for-profit developers against partners or investors attempting to circumvent your rights.
Mindful of developers’ varying degrees of dispute, our practice group is a blend of transactional attorneys and litigators ready to protect our clients—over telephone conferences, reaching out to agencies, or in court. Goldstein Hall is one of the leading law firms representing developers in LIHTC disputes across the country.
As the Federal government recognized the indispensable need for affordable housing when it created LIHTC, Goldstein Hall recognizes the critical role developers play as stewards of affordable housing and is prepared to fight on your behalf.
