Samantha leads the firm’s FHA finance practice. She has counseled national lending clients and negotiated multimillion-dollar, multilayered structured financing deals. A major portion of Samantha’s practice includes representation of lending clients in finance transactions involving multifamily apartment complexes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, elderly housing and intermediate care facilities. She has experience in structures involving the refinancing, new construction and substantial rehabilitation of various facilities, as well as financing structures involving multi-facility portfolios, operator-lessees, master leases, subordinate financing, low-income housing tax credits, accounts receivables, condominium structures, ground leases, bond defeasance, restrictive covenants, trusts, depositor bank control agreements and mortgage insurance claims. She represents lenders across the United States that provide financing pursuant to FHA insurance programs, including Sections 232, 221(d)(4), 223(a)(7), and 223(f) of the National Housing Act.

In addition to FHA/HUD transactions, Samantha also is experienced in Fannie Mae transactions and has represented lenders in loan workouts, assumptions, credit facilities and loan syndication, including a $133 million credit facility and the syndication of a $230 million construction loan.
