Alison is a partner at HA&W’s real estate and construction industry practice group, specializing in multi-family and affordable housing. She has a particular expertise in the early stages of development and construction of new deals. She has worked very closely with her clients in the affordable developments to maximize their tax credit allocations and to complete their project and final allocation. As a partner, Alison expands her role as a leader in the Firm’s affordable housing initiative, and continues to assist clients in minimizing common state agency roadblocks.
Alison recently assisted a real estate client working on an adaptive reuse of a historical building on the national registry that was awarded preservation tax credits. Alison consulted with her client early in the planning stages to identify the qualified rehab expenditures and to maximize the value of these credits from a financing perspective. She assisted the client in securing a private investor that could utilize the credits and facilitated her clients ability to raise the capital needed to acquire the building and plan the renovation. Her guidance and innovative solutions enabled this client to complete the massive renovation and bring a beautiful historic building back to life.
“Alison’s expertise in the affordable housing sector makes her an invaluable asset to HA&W and allows her to mitigate client costs and reduce the stress associated with deal structuring,” said Richard Kopelman, CEO and managing partner at HA&W. “Her knowledge of the space enables her clients to complete deals faster, while maximizing their profits.”
