  • Troutman Sanders, LLP- Bronze Sponsor

    More info Less info

    Troutman Sanders' Multifamily Housing Finance practice is the premier nationwide practice representing lenders in the multifamily finance industry. We focus on counseling mortgage banking clients in origination, sale and servicing of loan transactions sold to secondary market investors - primarily Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - and other financial institutions and securitization program participants. 

    We were involved at the inception of Fannie Mae's Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS) product line in 1988, and have consistently represented the majority of top originating lenders in that program. We similarly established ourselves as the leading law firm representing Freddie Mac Program Plus seller/servicers and have successfully closed and delivered thousands of Freddie Mac's securitized capital markets execution (CME) loans since that program's genesis in 2009. In addition, we are one of only 12 firms approved by Freddie Mac to act as SBL single counsel. With 29 full-time, dedicated lawyers in the multifamily housing practice, we have handled some of the industry's most significant transactions. Examples include eight of the largest multifamily-apartment portfolio financings since 2012, each of which had an aggregate loan amount in excess of $1 billion. Between 2012 and 2015, we closed more than 6,300 transactions nationwide, with a volume in excess of $92 billion.
