Our client, an affordable housing company (with exposure across other asset classes) in Orange County, is looking for a Senior Counsel to join their legal team. The company has three distinct business divisions, including an acquisition rehab business out of which they buy existing multifamily apartments financed with tax credits and then do significant renovations; a construction business line; and an essential housing business line that is focused on providing affordable /middle housing to essential workers (teachers, nurses, etc.).

Their Chief Legal Officer is looking for a 5-8 year real estate attorney to join the existing 4 person legal team as Senior Counsel. This hire will be responsible for assisting with the blocking and tackling of real estate transactions for the construction platform and essential housing platform primarily, but will also support on general corporate matters, insurance matters, vendor contracts, litigation, etc., touching on a wide range of legal matters.

Ultimately, when speaking with candidates, the CLO will be doing so with an eye towards his eventual succession plan. It’s an exciting time to be joining the company – you will be joining what is soon to become one of the four largest affordable housing companies nationally by units managed after a new 10,000 essential housing portfolio goes to market.

If this sounds interesting and your background is aligned with the above, please do not hesitate to apply!
