Scott Vetri, a partner in the firm's Real Estate Practice, was featured in a Q&A article in Lawyer Monthly, in which he describes some signs of recovery in the U.S. real estate market. While he says investors are showing an increased appetite for risk, many have become more hesitant to pursue highly complex, structured transactions. Mr. Vetri explains that challenges still lie ahead for commercial real estate loans. "The overwhelming demand for loans, both to meet refinancing needs as existing loans mature and to provide leverage for new projects and investments, will need to be met from sources not currently providing loans to the marketplace," he says. "This will include the resurrection of securitized lending as well as the continued growth of private debt funds." ("Real Estate Law Q&A – USA," March 2011)
