Catherine M. Cumming

I love the tangible aspect of my work, pointing to a building and knowing we helped make it happen.

My Approach

What I enjoy most about my practice is that it is proactive and tangible. While I primarily work with for-profit and non-profit real estate developers, I also help lenders and investors navigate complex transactions. In a typical transaction, I help clients move from initial due diligence through closing, and any post-closing matters including tax credit allocation. When construction is complete and the doors open, there is something tangible that benefits real people and their community. However, once the deal closes our work is not done as we assist our clients with post-closing matters such as future developments, sales, refinances, resyndications, and corporate restructuring. No matter where we are in the process, I am always looking ahead to foresee and prevent potential issues or find better alternatives related to the project, financing, and corporate structure.
