Our Regulatory and Transactional Insurance Attorney Services
Our lawyers have deep experience advising insurance companies in their investment transactions, particularly debt and equity transactions involving commercial real estate. This work covers all areas of lending (including construction and permanent financing, senior debt, mezzanine financing, club loans and participations), as well as joint ventures, asset management, acquisition and sales, and property management contracts. We work alongside our litigation colleagues in managing CRE disputes when they arise. Along with the more traditional areas of investment, we have extensive experience working with insurance clients on niche investments including timber, the agriculture industry generally, and the energy sector.
We also regularly advise insurance clients on various issues related to ERISA regulation.
