About Us

In 1947, Krooth & Altman’s founding partners, David Krooth and Norman Altman, envisioned the firm as a means of providing the highest level of legal expertise and strategic counseling. K&A maintains that strong tradition in a national practice focused on real estate and capital finance and related business matters. Its attorneys pride themselves as “lawyers’ lawyers,” with decades of experience in laws related to all aspects of real estate; including multifamily housing and healthcare financing, debt and equity transactions, taxable and tax-exempt financings, mortgage and investment banking, secondary market debt transactions, project subsidies and credit enhancements, tax, litigation, employment, corporations, partnerships and alternative entity organizational structures, and debt relief and restructuring. Its clients include a wide array of prominent national bankers, developers and investors in real estate and mortgage finance activities.

By maintaining a single, strategically located office in Washington, D.C., and the original partnership structure contemplated by its founding partners, K&A has fostered and sustained a collegial and cooperative working atmosphere among its attorneys that allows the full resources of the firm and the expertise of all its attorneys to be brought to bear on any client representation.

The firm has a national law practice that provides quality legal services throughout the country. K&A, while specializing in matters of multifamily real estate and health care capital financing and related banking activities, also maintains an active practice in litigation, corporate and partnership law, taxation, entertainment and intellectual property law.
