Aaron Roffwarg, chair of the firm’s real estate department, counsels clients on strategic transactions in a creative, efficient and effective manner. According to Chambers USA, Aaron is praised for his experience in energy, real estate and corporate finance transactions as a “project finance expert” (2009) and for his “outstanding level of experience” (2008). Additionally, Chambers USA notes that Aaron “has the ability to convince everyone of the reasonableness of his arguments and recommendations” (2010) and is “one of the top real estate guys I’ve ever dealt with” (2017).

He represents and counsels clients in transactions that involve real estate and construction projects, including synthetic lease and sale-leaseback transactions, complex midstream oil and gas projects, pipelines and terminals used to transport oil, gas and other petroleum products and merchant electric generation facilities. He represents private equity investors, developers, financial institutions and utilities in transactions that include acquisitions and divestitures of assets and companies, structured finance, leveraged finance, project development and project finance. In addition, Aaron regularly represents healthcare organizations regarding real estate development and mergers and acquisitions transactions.

Additionally, Mr. Roffwarg serves as general and special counsel for charities, foundations and other tax-exempt organizations regarding a broad category of issues, with a primary focus on real estate transactions and large-scale donations and investments.  Most recently, his team’s work was recognized by the Houston Business Journal with a 2018 Landmark Award as the “Community Impact Winner” for the Star of Hope Cornerstone Community project. Such work also includes representing foundations regarding donations to public and private universities (including the creation and endowment of academic institutes), city parks and public schools. These arrangements typically include complex funding structures, naming provisions and grant recipient maintenance commitments.
