C. Glenn Dunaway serves as an arranger and legal advisor on complex timberland transactions around the world, having participated in deals throughout the United States, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and South Africa. With more than 30 years of experience in the timberland space, he provides structural tax advice on both domestic and international deals, including foreign investment in timberland in the United States. He has been involved in all phases of the capital formation process for large transactions in the timberland, agriculture, forestry and bio-energy industries. He has developed an extensive network of global contacts in the timberland space that enables him to efficiently manage engagements throughout the major timberland investment jurisdictions.
To respond to quickly evolving changes in the timberland management industry, Glenn has worked to develop alternative management investment platforms, including an alternative model of timberland investment particularly suited to the needs of European institutional investors. The model ties the fees being charged by timberland investment managers more closely than traditional models to the lifecycle of the investment. Glenn also has substantial experience in private equity, venture capital and commercial real estate investment, representing fund sponsors, institutional investors (including pension funds and other tax-exempt investors), foreign governments, and high net worth individuals.
