Areas of Practice

Commercial real estate 

As commercial real estate markets and product offerings grow and change, our goal is to maximize opportunities for clients through responsiveness, flexibility, and a pragmatic approach. By combining the necessary experience in acquisition, construction and financing we are able to do so. 

economic development 

Linchpin Legal offers the traditional experience in CRE legal oversight, while also focusing on strategic and creative tax credit, grants, tax increment finance, and tax abatement financing. Linchpin Legal provides a holistic approach, ensuring agreements for multiple layers of the capital stack harmonize with each other, so your project can be completed and placed into service as quickly as possible.

commercial contracts 

For many organizations, hiring full-time legal counsel is neither necessary nor cost effective. At Linchpin Legal, we can create an a la carte package combining the necessary tools that are most effective for Commercial Contracts and "Outside In-House Counsel" Services. 

tax credit financing 

Project financing can include multiple layers of financing, including complex tax credit programs. Linchpin combines the use of applicable tax credit financing tools to ensure that all financing programs work hand in hand. 

tax exempt organizations 

Tax exempt organizations have many of the same issues as taxable organizations, with the added complexity of IRS regulations. Because we understand all of those needs, Linchpin Legal offers tailored advice to tax exempt organizations. 


In technology, we focus on packaging a series of contracts and end user agreements to suit each client’s needs. Linchpin understands that protecting a brand or even a single design involves intellectual property, copyrights, trademarks, and patents. We have relationships with trusted, specialized IP firms to facilitate the filing with the USPTO.


We understand and assess risk in various situations, and provide pragmatic “risk versus benefit” advice, so that our clients can focus on what they know best — operating their businesses.
