Gaquin’s clients include real estate investment companies, corporate and institutional users, national and regional developers, opportunity funds pension advisors and sponsors and investors in joint ventures. He has served as lead counsel for many of the most significant development projects in the Greater Boston area in recent years.
Gaquin has extensive experience acquiring and selling commercial properties of all types. His work includes the management of an acquisition program for a public shopping center REIT; the acquisition and disposition of office buildings, apartments, industrial, and retail properties for private real estate investment funds; and numerous other multi-property and multi-state transactions.
His significant development practice focuses on site control, acquisition, planning and permitting and includes large-scale development projects with complex zoning and land use issues. Gaquin also applies his land use experience to advise developers of both market rate and affordable multifamily housing projects.
Gaquin manages a multistate leasing program for a national real estate investment fund. His commercial leasing experience extends to office/research and development campuses, large retail properties such as big box stores and power centers, and office parks.
Gaquin also represents lenders and borrowers in various types of financing and shared investment transactions, from conventional, property-specific mortgage loans to mezzanine loans, preferred equity investments and joint ventures.
These are some of the reasons that we named Gaquin to our Boston & New England grouping of Lawyers in Real Estate. These are real estate attorneys who have distinguished themselves in both their practice and the larger community.
