In Connecticut, Cuddy & Feder provides a full range of transactional and litigation services for business entities in numerous industries and – in particular, financial institutions.
Our Banking Group in Connecticut thoroughly understands the fundamental concepts and
interrelationships of the complex laws and regulations in the financial services industry as well
as the nuances necessary to navigate through them both safely and favorably. The industry
continues to experience rapid changes, and compliance requirements continue to grow in
significant ways as regulatory changes and risk management issues become more complex and
require greater resources and management attention.
Our finance attorneys have also assisted many property developers with Industrial Development
Agency (IDA) straight-lease transactions. These transactions are often done in conjunction with
bank loans – especially construction loans – and provide to our clients mortgage recording tax
exemptions and sales tax exemptions, as well as real property tax abatements, reduced energy
costs and similar governmental benefits. We routinely assist clients looking to develop shopping
centers, office complexes or multi-family housing projects structure and secure bond financing to
finance their projects.
Supported by the additional resources of our New York offices, we are able to provide
comprehensive integrated legal services throughout our various practice groups in areas such as
complex real estate acquisitions and development, finance and leasing. Our commercial and
residential developer clients also rely upon our particular expertise in land use and zoning to
advise on real estate projects.
For more information about our Connecticut services, please contact Anthony B. Gioffre III,
Partner in charge of the office.
