Paul Bouton is the department head for Nixon Peabody’s Real Estate, Energy and Community Development Department. Paul represents affordable housing developers in the development and preservation of affordable housing, primarily in Massachusetts.
What do you focus on?
I focus my practice on all aspects of affordable housing finance and development. I have represented owners and developers in the production and preservation of tens of thousands of affordable housing apartment units.
As part of my work in affordable housing finance, I have gained significant experience in structuring and documenting partnership arrangements between developers, owners, investors and others involved in affordable housing development.
I have developed legislative experience as well, as I helped write and implement two Massachusetts state laws relating to affordable housing preservation and development, specifically the Massachusetts state low-income housing tax credit program and the Massachusetts affordable housing preservation law (40T).
