Miles & Stockbridge Significantly Expands Affordable Housing and Tax Credit Practice with Addition of Nine Lawyers in D.C.
Miles & Stockbridge continues the strategic expansion of its Washington, D.C. office with the addition of nine lawyers to the firm’s highly-regarded Transactional Finance and Real Estate Practice Group. All nine lawyers have significant affordable housing and tax credit capabilities and have been working together as the D.C.-based Tax Credit Advice Team at global law firm Bryan Cave.
Miles & Stockbridge welcomes Jerry Breed, Bill Driggers, Donna Rodney and John Dalton as principals; Corenia Burlingame, Dawna Steelman, Megan Palmer and Robert Coberly as counsel; and Jordana Hausman as an associate. Two paralegals and two legal assistants have joined the firm as well.
“We are thrilled to have this nationally-recognized group at Miles & Stockbridge,” said John A. Stalfort, managing principal of the Washington, D.C. office. “They bring deep experience with them and are exceptionally well matched to our transactional work, client base and firm culture.”
The lawyers counsel real estate developers, investors, syndicators and lenders across all phases of tax credit transactions involving low-income housing tax credits, historic rehabilitation tax credits, new markets tax credits and renewable energy tax credits. They will work closely with Miles & Stockbridge’s Affordable Housing and Community Development Practice Group.
“Under John Stalfort’s leadership, our D.C. office has achieved steady financial growth and added many senior-level laterals to our team,” said John B. Frisch, chairman and chief executive officer. With the addition of this highly-accomplished tax credit group, we now have 32 lawyers on K Street doing sophisticated and complex work.”
Joining the firm’s D.C. office in the last year are Pete Dungan from Hogan Lovells, Van Hilderbrand from Sullivan & Worcester, Russ Randle from Squire Patton Boggs, and associates Tim Donovan, Jason Blindauer and Kendra Merchant.
“We are bringing strengths together,” said Jerome A. “Jerry” Breed, who leads the tax credit group. “Miles & Stockbridge’s transactional finance, tax and affordable housing practices are highly regarded. We further add to this strength and gain the ability to better serve our clients and compete in the tax credit marketplace with the firm’s platform.”
