About Bruce Kosub

Bruce Kosub has spent more than 30 years advising clients on how to invest in real estate. He helps real estate owners, developers, investors, lenders and tenants make money in the real estate market, often in connection with large-scale developments. Clients look to Bruce for his ability to identify potential problems that they otherwise would not anticipate, and to solve them with both custom and creative solutions.

Custom solutions for complex real estate transactions

Bruce provides wide-ranging experienced counsel to his real estate clients. He advises developers on all aspects of their business, from entity formation and joint venture agreements to trademark licensing and crane-swing agreements. For investors, he assesses and advises on the risk of their investments based on the underlying property information and legal documents, and helps them negotiate solutions acceptable to all parties. For lenders, he advises on financing exit issues like workouts and foreclosures. Due to his broad experience, Bruce is able to spot hidden issues — those that could lead to unforeseen cost, delay and litigation — and unrecognized opportunities. Whatever issue he is addressing, he creates custom solutions that avoid unnecessary cost and risk of harm.

Bruce's ability to find business-focused solutions has been vital in moving forward multiple nine- and ten-figure real estate projects. On a $3 billion development along the Washington, DC-area silver metro line, Bruce's client made him general counsel of the entire development. His creativity on the project helped resolve several key issues among stakeholders in the capital stack who did not want to share certain construction risks, which allowed the project to proceed with both construction cost savings and construction risk separation. As in all of his engagements, Bruce demonstrated that wherever possible, he can push even the most complex deals forward in ways that allow his clients to achieve their business goals.
