Joint Ventures and Investments

At Troutman Sanders, we handle all aspects of joint ventures and investments for our commercial real estate clients, which include developers, private equity funds, pension funds and entrepreneurs. Our team of attorneys regularly crafts customized ownership structures for a variety of investment needs, from single-asset transactions to portfolio fund investments that must balance numerous risk factors and emerging opportunities. To devise tailored and practical solutions, we utilize preferred equity investment structures, tax-driven approaches, multi-tiered and multi-investor entities.

We understand that venture structures create opportunities for successful and flexible acquisitions, dispositions, financing, investments and affiliate relationships. We help clients address the manifold challenges of negotiating joint rights, management controls and tiered investments. Our team also coordinates the work of our real estate finance, corporate and tax attorneys to provide a comprehensive real estate solution and investment.

We assist our clients in all aspects of development, entitlement, management and financing of properties in all industries and market segments with a thoughtful and creative approach to client service and value-added teamwork.
