About Denise Oliveira

I represent nonprofit and for-profit developers and owners throughout the country in the acquisition, development, and preservation of affordable housing. My practice spans transactional and regulatory compliance matters pertaining to multifamily affordable housing programs, including:

  • Section 8 renewals and assignments
  • Transfers of ownership of HUD-assisted properties
  • Transfer of physical assets (TPAs)

Prior to joining the firm, I practiced at the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, where I worked on Section 8 matters as well as the preservation of affordable housing through the enforcement of anti-harassment laws. Previously, I was an associate in the Community Development Finance group at Nixon Peabody LLP, representing clients developing real estate with the use of federal, state, historic, and new market tax credits.
