Klein Hornig LLP

Klein Hornig LLP has a single mission - to provide uncompromising service and unparalleled legal expertise for community-based real estate development projects. The firm, which has 23 lawyers in our Boston and Washington, DC offices, focuses on structuring, managing and closing complex real estate transactions. Our focus has always been affordable housing and community development projects, including tax credit projects. We represent non-profit and for-profit developers, public housing authorities, lenders and investors in all types of multilayered affordable housing transactions for both new development and housing preservation/revitalization, financed under a myriad of federal, state and local programs including Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, New Markets Tax Credits, HOPE VI/mixed-finance, HUD Section 202/811 projects, tax-exempt bonds loans, and many more. In addition to wide programmatic experience, Klein Hornig offers expertise in the fields of public housing, partnership and business associations, condominiums and cooperatives, non-profit organizations, real estate law and conveyancing, construction law, zoning and land use law, legislative services, administrative enforcement, and fair housing. The firm's clients range from small, neighborhood based community development corporations (CDCs) to large national housing developers and investors.

As a relatively small firm, but one with a great depth of experience in several closely related practice areas, we offer large-firm expertise with an abiding commitment to service that is enhanced by our scale. We consider communication with our clients to be an integral part of our job description. We listen carefully to our clients so that we can fully address their concerns, and we try to understand our clients' situations fully enough to anticipate concerns they may not yet realize they have. We staff our legal work as efficiently as possible, so that the experience level of our attorneys is matched with the tasks to be performed. We take pride in the skills and intelligence of our junior attorneys, but also recognize that clients rely upon the depth of experience and expertise offered by senior attorneys who have each structured and closed numerous complex transactions. We believe that our size, depth of experience and relatively modest billing rates allow us to offer an unmatched combination of expertise and efficiency.
