This content is provided by Jason M. Vismantas
Jason works with both institutional and non-institutional real estate private equity groups, publicly traded and non-publicly traded REITS, financing companies, fund managers, sponsors and developers across the country. Instead of taking a singular approach, he views each transaction in the context of his client's broader investment goals and financing strategy. This allows him to better identify the legal risks inherent in each transaction which would be specifically problematic to the client's overall business, and better formulate constructive solutions to mitigating that risk.
His substantial experience includes handling acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures, preferred equity arrangements, leasing (including sale-leasebacks), development and financing. Jason has worked with hotels and resorts, industrial warehouse and distribution centers, multifamily apartment rental buildings, office towers (central business district and suburban), residential and office condominiums, retail shopping centers, and mixed-use facilities.
Additionally, Jason represents both lenders and borrowers in a variety of real estate-based financing transactions, including senior, mezzanine, construction, permanent, portfolio financings, fund financings and lines of credit. He also has experience in connection with distressed assets and financings, from workouts and loan modifications to forbearance agreements and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure.
