Opportunity Zones

A powerful new tax incentive for real estate investors, venture capital, private wealth, family offices and private equity.


By leveraging our expertise in real estate development, transactions and specialty tax planning, we are uniquely positioned to help potential investors and project sponsors take advantage of the opportunity zones program, which aims to spur long-term private sector investments in low-income communities nationwide.

We can help potential opportunity zones investors understand the tax planning implications of such an investment and align them with investment offerings. And we can help real estate companies and business owners integrate the program in their capital stack as appropriate.
