Minneapolis’ Moss & Barnett names new shareholders

Minneapolis-based law firm Moss & Barnett have named Lindsay Case, Maggie Garborg and John Kennedy shareholders in the firm.

Case focuses her practice on closing and delivering loans secured by multifamily projects to secondary market investors like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. As part of this practice, she prepares and negotiates loan documents, reviews legal opinions, examines title, survey and other due diligence. Her practice ranges from closing $1 million supplemental loans to $100-million-plus acquisition loans.

Case has experience with deal components such as affordable housing restrictions, condominiums, HOAs, mixed-use developments, and lease-up and value-add properties. Lindsay structures transactions to meet the needs of sophisticated borrower structures involving joint ventures, tenancies-in-common, 1031 exchanges and foreign guarantors.

Garborg is an experienced commercial real estate attorney for national lenders and loan servicers. She represents institutional lenders in the financing of commercial and multifamily housing projects around the country and the sale of loans to secondary market investors such as Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. She has closed numerous transactions involving complex deal structures, including joint ventures, tenancies-in-common, ground leases, condominiums, phased developments, preferred equity, and investment funds. She also represents national loan servicers in a variety of matters, including loan modifications, assumptions and transfers of interests.

Kennedy primarily represents lenders in the financing and refinancing of multifamily housing projects throughout the United States, involving loans that are then sold to secondary market investors such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He principally focuses his practice on representing lenders in financing transactions under Freddie Mac’s Small Balance Loan (SBL) program. John also has extensive experience in examining real property title and the many contentious issues that may arise in owning or financing real property.
