At Nixon Peabody, our priority is to attract, retain, and promote talented individuals from a wide range of racial, ethnic, social, economic, religious, and personal backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations. Therefore, we encourage talented individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply.

Our Community Development Finance Practice Group is seeking to hire an associate to join our national new markets tax credit practice.  As noted above, location is flexible and a variety of remote work options are available.

The ideal candidate will have six to eight years of transactional experience in real estate or community development finance projects. The successful candidate will work primarily with our New Markets Tax Credit team and will focus on advising investors, community development entities, project sponsors, leverage lenders, and/or other lender participants in connection with the structuring of multiple sources of financing, including tax credits and other government incentives, to be used in aiding commercial development and revitalizing underserved communities across the country. Knowledge of real estate finance, government incentive programs, partnerships and limited liability companies, and an aptitude for analyzing financial projections all will allow the successful attorney to provide real value to our clients.  Prior law firm or national accounting firm experience is a plus.

Our Community Development Finance practice is one of the largest of its kind in the nation, and among the foremost legal authorities in transactions involving tax credit financing and other community development programs – either individually or in combination with other incentives. Qualified candidates will be motivated self-starters with strong academic credentials, superb judgment and communication skills, a commitment to exceptional client service, and will have the ability to thrive in a demanding work environment.
